Digital transformation

The new key research area of digital transformation will comprise the Faculty’s research into modern and ‘disruptive’ information and communication technologies and their economic impact. This includes edge computing, big data analytics, blockchain and artificial intelligence. Taking the intended economic effects of these technologies as a point of departure, this research group seeks to determine which technical artefacts are suitable for achieving them. It also examines existing artefacts in terms of their economic consequences. Its research focus makes the new key area of digital transformation inherently transdisciplinary, as it utilises methods and theories from informatics, business information systems, business administration and economics. The business information systems research group has taken on a leading role and actively advances the development of this key research area together with its adjacent disciplines.
