Chicago, long known as a major transportation hub, is also a major financial center, telecommunications and Internet hub, as well as home to many international corporations and world class universities. Serving as a nerve center for global integration it is ranked 7th worldwide in the 2012 A.T. Kearney Global Cities Index. In today’s hyperconnected world Chicago plays a critical role in support of information systems, services, and infrastructure and, as such, is a natural location for AMCIS.
Come join us in Chicago for AMCIS 2013 where the theme is Hyperconnected World: Anything, Anywhere, Anytime.
The Hyperconnected Business: hyper-successful or just hyper?
Businesses leaders receive massive amounts of data, which conceivably offer opportunities for better understanding of their markets, customers, employees, and business experiments. And they can receive that data any time, any place, on an increasingly diverse set of devices. But those leaders could easily feel bombarded by worthless data, annoying contacts, and meaningless statistics. What distinguishes companies that convert their 24x7 flow of transactions, tweets, social media, sensor data, purchased databases, text, video, and other numerous sources of data into business success? And how do we, as researchers, contribute to business practices that result in more effective, more humane, more innovative uses of information and information technology? Jeanne Ross considers how 20 years of research at MIT’s Center for Information Systems Research informs research and practice in the digital economy.
