Conference Paper
Business units are increasingly able to introduce information technology (IT) into their business processes. Thereby, they implement Shadow IT (SIT) to create flexible and innovative IT solutions. However, the individual implementation of SIT leads to unwanted data and functional redundancies and as a result to inefficiencies and reduced automation...

Preprint
The implementation of the vision of Industry 4.0 towards the Smart Factory requires, in addition to data collection and constant networking of all devices and machines, the rapid processing of large amounts of data. The concept of Cloud Computing enables central processing, but the latency of the transmission to the cloud requires too much time for...
Article
Full-text available
Business units are increasingly able to fuel the transformation that digitalization demands of organizations. Thereby, they can implement Shadow IT (SIT) without involving a central IT department to create flexible and innovative solutions. Self-reinforcing effects lead to an intertwinement of SIT with the organization. As a result, high complexiti...

Decision makers in industry use IT systems to enrich task fulfilment with information systematically. Next to engineering-driven concepts, the application of Operational Business Intelligence (OpBI) is discussed to support production-specific decisions and to organize production processes. Currently, this discussion focusses rather on practicabilit...
Conference Paper
The development of the Internet of Things (IoT) creates a multitude of new Real Time Analytics (RTA) application possibilities, also in the area of industry. However, already the topic of big data forced the use of analytical solutions which were processed in real time. In order to consider the possible applications of RTA, it is necessary to gathe...
Conference Paper
Shadow information technology systems (SITS) coexist with formal enterprise systems in organisations. SITS pose risks but also increase flexibility of business units. Practice shows that SITS emerge, despite that Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) aims at controling all IT systems in an organization. Studies acknowledge this problem in genera...
Article
In several organizations, business workgroups autonomously implement information technology (IT) outside the purview of the IT department. Shadow IT, evolving as a type of workaround from nontransparent and unapproved end-user computing (EUC), is a term used to refer to this phenomenon, which challenges norms relative to IT controllability. This re...

The IT unit is not the only provider of information technology (IT) used in business processes. Aiming for increased performance, many business workgroups autonomously implement IT resources not covered by their organizational IT service management. This is called shadow IT. Risks and inefficiencies associated with this phenomenon challenge organiz...
Conference Paper
Billions of events (image, video, tweet, purchase, delivery, or failure) are captured in the era of Big Data and used as training data in business analytic models. But, the event relevance and the consequent effect on a target variable are difficult to ascertain. Contemporaneous events, and not specified market latencies, might lead to a fuzzily de...

ERP systems integrate a major part of all business processes and organizations include them in their IT service management. Besides these formal systems, there are additional systems that are rather stand-alone and not included in the IT management tasks. These so-called ‘shadow systems’ also support business processes but hinder a high enterprise...

XBRL is in an increasing number of countries defined as the obligate format for the transmission of financial data to authorities by legal requirements. The legal requirement itself refers solely to the transmission of the information in XBRL format. How a formatting of a company’s report becomes realized is not regulated. This decision has to be d...

Business Intelligence has “decision support” as a characterizing element. Decisions are done as a selection process based on alternatives. The choice depends on prospective developments whereby those developments are predicted with uncertainty. Due to this reason, forecasts are getting more into focus of the strategic and tactical level. But foreca...

The financial crisis resulted in a loss of trust; not only within the investment or banking sector, but in general between creditors and debtors, because many organizations faced insolvency. Such a financial situation can even result in a company’s bankruptcy. Therefore it is necessary to get a realistic understanding of the solvency or the possibl...
Conference Paper
Performance measurement is a knowledge intensive business process and performance measurement systems (PMS) are appropriate tools to collect relevant performance information. Though, the application of many PMS fails. Therefore, there is a vivid debate in the literature about the right design, implementation, and use of PMS. Other contributions des...
