About this book

This book presents a collection of original research papers focusing on the enabling aspects of Information and Communication Technologies. In particular, it focuses on the two topics of digital platforms and digital artefacts, and discusses their role in enabling organizations to achieve specific goals, to exploit innovative value propositions, or to leverage innovative coordination mechanisms. Adopting a multidisciplinary perspective on a variety of information systems topics, the book offers interesting insights for IS managers, business managers, and policymakers alike. It is based on a selection of the best research papers - original double-blind peer-reviewed contributions - presented at the annual conference of the Italian chapter of the AIS, held in Genoa (Italy) in November 2014.
