Information systems strategy and configurational technologies: cases from the UK public sector

Keith S. Horton
2003 European Conference on Information Systems  
This paper draws upon symbolic interactionism in order to assess and discuss the findings from a longitudinal, single sector, case-based analysis of information system strategy (ISS) formation within two  ...  Each case acquired sought large, complex applications off-the-shelf that required customisation. These are discussed as configurational technologies.  ...  However, the meanings derived from activities of external bodies seemed influential, and reinforced the view that interaction cannot be isolated from the wider sphere of public sector activity.  ...

Creating Value in Online Communities: The Sociomaterial Configuring of Strategy, Platform, and Stakeholder Engagement

Michael Barrett, Eivor Oborn, Wanda Orlikowski
2016 Information systems research  
Forthcoming in Information Systems Research; Barrett M, Oborn E, Orlikowski W. 'Creating Value in Online Communities: The Sociomaterial Configuring of Strategy, Platform, and Stakeholder Engagement.'  ...  To explain our findings, we theorize OC value as performed through the ongoing sociomaterial configuring of strategies, digital platform, and stakeholder engagement.  ...  This understanding departs from the typical treatment of technology as somewhat distinct from how people engage with the OC, and conceptualizes technology as part of the sociomaterial configuration (Mazmanian  ...

The use of foresight: institutional constraints and conditions

Barend van der Meulen, Anne Lohnberg
2001 International Journal of Technology Management  
However, the impact of technological and global changes varies per country and per innovation sector, as do possibilities to develop interorganisational strategies.  ...  The argument is supported by a secondary analysis of national foresight studies and of environmental technology foresight in the Netherlands, and a first analysis of foresight in medical technology.  ...  Dependency and uncertainty were high in the UK science system in the early nineties and are so in the configuration around medical information technology in the Netherlands.  ...
