Track Description
Advances in information technologies (IT) have fundamentally changed the way firms incept, formulate, and execute strategies for competitive advantages, a trend that is only to accelerate in the coming decades. In fact, recent developments in machine learning, Internet of Things, and digital platforms compel firms to continuously reassess how to invest in, manage, and appropriate the value from information systems (IS). For example, cloud computing and consumerization of digital technologies allow ordinary employees with little technology knowledge to adopt and implement IS on their own, posing challenges in governance of IT and assessment of value from the systems. Automation of business processes with machine learning enables firms to maximize operational efficiencies to the extreme and further augment strategic agility. Commercialization of artificial intelligence offers a whole new range of business opportunities, possibly rendering competitive landscapes even more turbulent and dynamic than before. Firms utilize digital technologies to eliminate structural bottlenecks that fundamentally limit supplies or demands, unleashing untapped demands or supplies.

We invite thought-provoking, original research articles that expand and challenge our understanding of strategic management, IS governance, and value of IS. We are expecting high-quality research that either develops a new theoretical framework for strategy, governance, and value of IS or provides interesting, surprising empirical findings for the track theme with rigorous execution. New interdisciplinary approaches with strategic management, economics, or organizational theory literature and/or with data-driven analytical methods are particularly welcomed. We also require that submitted papers offer meaningful, actionable implications for practitioners.
