Description

Questions on the business value of information technology (IT), which have been raised by managers and researchers for the last decade, are not settled yet. Firms invest in IT to improve their business performance. However, some firms fail to improve their business performance while others succeed. The overall value of IT varies enormously from firm to firm. Computerization does not automatically create business value, but it is one essential component that should be coupled with organizational changes such as new strategies, new business processes, and new organizational structure. Creating Business Value with Information Technology: Challenges and Solutions aims to solicit the studies that yield significant new insights into the business value of IT.
