Abstract [en]

Establishing business intelligence analytics (BIA) in small- and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises is a pervasive problem. SME’s - the majority of businesses - play an important role in creating jobs, but research is primarily focused on large corporations. The authors worked with small manufacturing companies at the aspirational capability level but found that their motivation to introduce BIA was low. They had many business challenges but perceived the obstacles (primarily cost and effort) as too great, and their priorities were with operational issues. A two-phase approach based on a well-known analytics maturity model was devised to help raise company motivation. The article describes three studies in different companies using variations of the approach. Comparative analysis of the cases shows that demonstrating a clear path to improved functional efficiency is key to improving motivation, and that simple, easy to learn tools can provide these insights at little cost.

Abstract [en]

Despite substantial investments in ICT in the public sector over the past decades, it has been hard to achieve consistent benefits. One reason for the difficulties is the gap between the expectations of key stakeholders (such as governments, businesses and citizens) and project outcomes. Though normative, descriptive and instrumental aspects of stakeholder theory have been influential in explaining stakeholder interests and relationships in the management field, e-Government researchers have rather neglected the normative core of the theory. We show how value theory can improve normative foundations in this area to provide a focused analysis of four e-Government projects. We use a multiple case study approach to study the values of salient stakeholders, demonstrating how the combination of value theory and stakeholder theory provides greater explanatory power than either of the theories in isolation. Our work shows how stakeholders´ interests are bound to generic value positions and allow us to formulate implications for research and practice.

Abstract [en]

Advances in text mining together with the widespread adoption of the Internethave opened up new possibilities for qualitative researchersin the information systems and business and management fields.Easy access to large amounts of textual material through search engines,combined with automated techniques for analysis,promise to simplify the process of qualitative research.In practice this turns out not to be so easy.We outline a design research approach for buildinga five stageprocess for low tech,low cost text mining, which includes insights from the text mining literature and an experiment with trend analysis in business intelligence.We summarise the prototype process,and discuss the many difficulties that currently stand in the way of high quality research by this route.Despite the difficulties, the combination of low cost text mining with qualitative research is a promising methodological avenue, and we specify some future paths for this area of study.

Abstract [en]

High technology innovation is essential for economic development in industrialised societies.  Innovation practice in smaller software companies, however, has received little attention.  We derive software innovation drivers and outputs from a fragmented literature and analyse their empirical relevance using qualitative data from twenty-five in-depth interviews with software executives in the Silicon Fen.  Repeating patterns in the dataset revealed through content analysis show that the most important innovation drivers for smaller software firms are external knowledge, leadership and team process. Specialised innovation tools and techniques are hardly used.  We develop a model of software innovation drivers, together with explorative theoretical propositions.

Abstract [en]

The call for papers for this workshop defines digital innovation as the application of digital tools, technology and digital infrastructure in new products, services, and business models that offer customers enhanced or unique value. While such a broad definition may be appealing in embracing a broad range of innovation practices, it may be argued to conflate two distinct types of innovation: those that bridge digital and physical domains and those that operate solely in the digital domain. An example of the former might be innovations associated with the digitalisation of automobile control systems in which digital technologies enhance the capabilities of a physical product. An example of the latter might be innovation in the software industry, in which the product itself is digital. In this paper we will review the literature on the characteristics of digital artefacts to try to identify the ways in which innovation practices may differ between these two types. Drawing on evidence from 18 small and medium-sized software enterprises in a specific geographic locale, we will explore the extent to which innovation in these firms may be seen as reflecting the particular characteristics of digital products. It will be argued that innovation of digital products, such as software, may be considered as a special case of digital innovation.

Abstract [en]

Software innovation - the ability to produce novel and useful software systems - is an important capability for software development organizations and information system developers alike. However, the software development literature has traditionally focused on automation and efficiency while the innovation literature has given relatively little consideration to the software development context. As a result, there is a gap in our understanding of how software product and process innovation can be managed. Specifically, little attention has been directed toward synthesising prior learning or providing an integrative perspective on the key concepts and focus of software innovation research. We therefore identify 93 journal articles and conference papers within the domain of software innovation and analyse repeating patterns in this literature using content analysis and causal mapping. We identify drivers and outputs for software innovation and develop an integrated theory-oriented concept map. We then discuss the implications of this map for future research.

Abstract [en]

E-Government strategies, investments, project selection, and implementations are influenced by value positionsdeeply enshrined in the traditions of public administration, which are in turn reflected in the everyday discourse of publicmanagers. We analyse value traditions in the public administration literature and their adaptation for e-Government and synthesise three prominent positions. Administrative efficiency focuses on cost-effectiveness logics highlighted by New Public Management thinking. Service improvement, derived from the tradition of public service, emphasises the provision of better services for citizens. Citizen engagement, with its roots in liberal democracy arguments, promotes responsiveness, consultation, collaboration and participation. A set of foundational values grounded in the deeply rooted bureaucratic tradition is also distinguished. A qualitative survey of Danish local authority managers’ value positions shows a heavy bias towards administrative efficiency and an absence of concern for citizen engagement. The implications of this efficiency imperative are discussed.
