ICIS 2010 Proceedings - Thirty First International Conference on Information Systems | Year: 2010

Concerns about information security and privacy continue to make headlines in the media and rate as serious issues in business and public surveys. Conventional thinking suggests that enhancements to governance models and business practices improve the performance of individual businesses. However, is this enough? Good governance is based on clear rights and responsibilities, and this panel will address the contention that such clarity is lacking in the treatment of personal information. As a result, certain types of business innovation may be constrained and good practices may remain tick box exercises, disconnected from wider business objectives. More radical thinking would go beyond incremental improvements to the status quo and recognize the profound challenges to privacy and information security created by digital technology. This panel will bring together a range of research disciplines and senior business representatives to critique current practice and develop a future research agenda. Source

China is investing heavily in leading edge and innovative information technologies to support its continuing economic growth. At the same time, Chinese businesses increasingly need to innovate with IT to create competitive difference and expand internationally. However, to what extent has China developed the capabilities to develop IT innovations and adopt them to generate value and competitive difference? This panel session will build learning on the capabilities both of the software industry and of businesses in China around IT innovation. To create a rich picture of maturity, skills and management processes concerning innovation, this multi-disciplinary session will bring together diverse perspectives from research and practice. By drawing on experience from Europe and the USA, as well as China itself, it will also reflect on key differences and lessons which can be learnt from China's vast IT investment and rapid acquisition of skills. © (2011) by the AIS/ICIS Administrative Office All rights reserved.

International Conference on Information Systems, ICIS 2012 | Year: 2012

Business analytics systems are seen by many to be a growing source of value and competitive advantage for businesses. However, it is not clear if increasingly advanced analytical capabilities create opportunities for radical change in business or just represent an incremental improvement to existing systems. What are the key questions that researchers should be focusing on to improve our understanding of analytics? And are IS programs teaching students the right things to be successful in this environment? This panel aims to take stock of technological possibilities, practical experience and leading research to assess the current state and future direction of business analytics. In doing so, it will bring together senior researchers and industry representatives to share the leading challenges, opportunities and good practice that they see. Source

Concerns about information security and privacy continue to make headlines in the media and pose serious challenges to business. While there are many good practices that an organization can adopt to manage information security and privacy, there are also underlying areas of contention about the protection of personal information in a digital environment. This ICIS panel considered three challenges facing businesses in developing effective strategies for information security and privacy-innovating with personal information, building robust governance models, and connecting security and privacy with business goals. In the process, the panel brought together a range of research disciplines and senior business representatives to critique current practice and develop a future research agenda. © 2011 by the Association for Information Systems.

However, it is not clear if increasingly advanced analytical capabilities create opportunities for radical change in business or just represent an incremental improvement to existing systems. What are the key questions that researchers should be focusing on to improve our understanding of analytics? And are Information Systems (IS) programs teaching students the right things to be successful in this environment?
