Information Technology increasingly permeates all sub-systems of modern society. Objects are turned into smart products by being augmented with sensors, actuators, information processing capabilities, and connectivity. Social media enable individuals, companies, and public administrations to share data in a digital and always-networked atmosphere. Increasingly large and diverse datasets are available to document, analyze, and predict events in real-time.
Taken together, this Digital Transformation impacts on individuals, firms, and public administrations and causes manifold opportunities and threats. On the one hand, a well-managed Digital Transformation will allow us to grow our economy and exploit business opportunities, while leveraging social welfare and sustainability at the same time. On the other hand, undesired consequences of the Digital Transformation need to be prevented and dealt with.
This Conference Theme Track provides a stimulating environment for presenting, discussing, and developing innovative ideas related to the Digital Transformation of individuals, organizations, institutions, networks, and society in general. In this regard, we encourage and welcome a broad spectrum of epistemological positions and research methods for developing new theory and innovative IT artifacts. We specifically foster submissions that aim at “Thought Leadership”. By “Thought Leadership” we mean especially innovative and highly promising thinking that intends to define the future’s status quo and authorities in our field.
Papers published in this track advance our insight into the mechanisms that constitute the Digital Transformation and/or impact on the (re-)design of organizations and information systems. Papers that go beyond insight and aim at generating impact (“from insight to impact”) and which are relevant, benefit-oriented and meaningful for both, society and organizations, are most welcome in this track.
