Chapter
Conversational Agents (CAs) provide the means to foster user experience design through seizing their interaction capability, knowledgeability, and human-like behavior. To support practice and academia in designing CAs, IS researchers have been creating design knowledge in the form of design principles (DPs) guided by the Design Science paradigm. Ho...

Many organizations struggle to measure, control, and manage agility in a manner of continuous improvement. Therefore, we draw on Design Science Research to develop and test a tool for Continuously Assessing and Improving Agile Practices (CAIAP). CAIAP helps agile practitioners to monitor the alignment of “as is” agile practices on individual, team...

Facilitated by AI technology, the phenomenon of cognitive automation extends the scope of deterministic business process automation (BPA) through the probabilistic automation of knowledge and service work. By transforming work systems through cognitive automation, organizations are provided with vast strategic opportunities to gain business value....
Article
Full-text available
Intelligent agents (IAs) are permeating both business and society. However, interacting with IAs poses challenges moving beyond technological limitations towards the human-computer interface. Thus, the knowledgebase related to interaction with IAs has grown exponentially but remains segregated and impedes the advancement of the field. Therefore, we...
Article
The journey to become an ecosystem orchestrator for an Internet of Things (IoT) platform poses considerable strategic challenges for industry incumbents, which arise along three dimensions: platform, ecosystem and value co-creation. We describe how “TelcoCorp,” a large European telecoms operator, addressed these challenges as it established its ent...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Facilitated by Artificial Intelligence technology, cognitive automation means to front and back offices what the pervasive automation through physical machinery and robots meant to production plants. Thus, we can automate tasks and processes that were unimaginable to be automated one decade ago. However, organizational adoption of cognitive automat...
Conference Paper
The role of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) in the organization has received a lot of attention in recent years. While traditionally most CIOs had faced the difficulty of stepping out of the shadow of being coined as a "Utility & Infrastructure Director", they have been found to establish themselves as a driving force in defining and shaping th...
Chapter
Artificial Intelligence (AI) provides organizations with vast opportunities of deploying AI for competitive advantage such as improving processes, and creating new or enriched products and services. However, the failure rate of projects on implementing AI in organizations is still high, and prevents organizations from fully seizing the potential th...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The interest in user-generated content (UGC) is steadily growing, as it provides a valuable data source for companies to extract information that can be used for competitive advantage. However, mining UGC and extracting knowledge is a costly and labor-intense endeavour. Against this backdrop, the steep advancements in deep learning (DL) during the...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Cognitive automation moves beyond rule-based automation and thus imposes novel challenges on organizations when assessing the automation potential of use cases. Thus, we present an empirically grounded and conceptually operationalized model for assessing cognitive automation use cases, which consists of four assessment dimensions: data, cognition,...

The ever-increasing complexity of the music industry and the intensified resentment of artists towards collecting societies call for a transformation and a change of behavior within the music ecosystem. This article introduces a hybrid intelligence system, that ameliorates the current situation by combining the intelligence of humans and machines....
Conference Paper

Big data analytics (BDA) gained importance in scholarly and practitioner literature alike. There is some disagreement, however, whether BDA is merely an evolution of established phenomena, most particularly business intelligence, or whether BDA represents a novel technology-driven innovation with potentially disruptive market impacts. Using the tec...

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is considered being a disruptive force for existing companies and a promising avenue towards competitive advantage. A myriad of companies started investing in AI initiatives. However, a significant number of AI projects is not successfully deployed. Taking a closer look at financial service organizations, we aim at cont...

Smart Personal Assistants (SPA) fundamentally influence the way individuals perform tasks, use services and interact with organizations. They thus bear an immense economic and societal potential. However, a lack of trust - rooted in perceptions of uncertainty and risk - when interacting with intelligent computer agents can inhibit their adoption. I...

Design Science (DS) has become an established research paradigm in Information Systems (IS) research. However, existing research still considers it as a challenge to publish DS contributions in top IS journals, due to the rather strict guidelines that DS publications are expected to follow. Against this backdrop, we intend to emphasize the myriad o...

The potential created by ongoing developments in data and analytics permeates a multitude of research areas, such as the field of Service Innovation. In this paper, we conduct a Systematic Literature Review (SLR) to investigate the integration of data and analytics as an analytical unit into the field of Service Innovation – referred to as Data-Dri...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The abundance of data accompanied by advances in analytics technologies increasingly drive companies to introduce analytics-based services, i.e. customer-facing services in which data and analytics help customers make decisions. Despite its growing application in practice, theoretical and conceptual work on analytics-based services is still scarce....

For decades, servitization served as a strategy to gain a competitive advantage over competitors. However, due to its ubiquitous adoption, it is no longer a viable source for differentiation. In this context, data and analytics bear the potential to create new value and, thus, is believed to drive the next frontier of servitization. Yet, the majori...
