Strategic Information Management. CITO Seminar
Strategic Information Management (SIM): A review of the literature. Dr Alexander Teubner and Dr Martin Mocker (University of Muenster, Germany) will give a joint research seminar on the topic of strategic information management. In the past an increasing number of IS topics have been discussed under the label ‘strategic’ by researchers from the IS discipline as well as from information and documentation science. Among them are Strategic Information Systems, Strategic Information Systems Planning, Strategic Alignment, IS/IT Strategy. A range of other topics have been claimed to have a ‘strategic’ impact (e.g. “the strategic intent of IT outsourcing”), not to forget the discussion on IT’s relation to competitive advantage.
With our review of around 400 research articles (and another 130 books authored by practitioners, consultants and academics alike), our aim is to develop a research map of SIM by identifying areas of SIM that have been researched to date, their relationships but also less intensively researched areas.
We would like to present and discuss our aims, approach as well as the first draft of such a SIM research map with other researchers interested in the field or parts of it.
