Abstract [en]

Companies are investing in new information systems in order to achieve higher efficiency in their business operations. But innovations in information technology (IT) in the form of increased productivity have still been modest. This is a well known phenomenon, usually called the "productivity paradox" for investments in IT systems within enterprises. Even if the IT investments made during the last ten years have successively provided improved operational effects, they do not fully come up to the expectations of the top managements. Investments in large enterprise systems will not automatically generate improved efficiency in the organisation. The implementation in modern IT systems needs to be supplemented by new innovative business processes and solid investments in competence development to have full potential effects!



The key issue on the top management agenda is to find out solutions for creating business value out of the portfolio of information systems used in the organisation. We will adopt the concept "enterprise information systems" (EIS) to stand for all kind of systems applied for supporting business processes in enterprises. EIS represents a wide range of systems that support processes within different business functions (such as DSS systems) or between different business functions (such as ERP systems) as well as inter-organisational collaboration over company functions (such as CRM systems). A challenge for future research in the area of "Management and IT" is to investigate the business effects of enterprise information systems in private firms as well as public authorities.



Our main research question for this paper will therefore be:



"What are significant conditions influencing the investment of enterprise information systems within and between organisations"?



The paper was presented at the following scientific conferences:



1. The 15th International Conference on Information Systems Development, ISD 2006, 31 August - 2 September, 2006, Budapest, Hungary



2. The First Workshop on Enterprise Systems - "Affärssystem", 21 November 2008, The Swedish Academy of Enterprise Systems Research and Department of Business Studies, Uppsala University, Sweden
