Conference Paper
Context: Contemporary organizations rely on global virtual teams. This trend, exasperated due to the Covid-19 pandemic, aligns with ongoing globalization and digital transformation efforts. The information system (IS) scholarship has a strong interest in studying groups that develop digital technologies with a frequent focus on global virtual teams...
Article
While business models transformed how we describe organizations, the authors apply equivalent modeling to describe industries. Specifically, the authors propose and implement a structured industry model development process (SIMDP) based on the design science research methodology (DSRM). Moreover, our novel approach conceptualizes an industry model...
Article
Purchasing through e-commerce continues to expand rapidly and is expected to reach $18.89 trillion by 2027. After two decades of e-commerce research, little is known about the effects of economic conditions (developed vs. developing). We synthesize prior e-purchase intention literature from multiple business disciplines (e.g., information systems,...
Article
Professionals routinely view, interpret, and make decisions using geospatial data. Nevertheless, our scientific understanding of how individuals work with geospatial information is still limited. While contemporary decision support systems improve geospatial decision-making, managers and researchers must form a more comprehensive understanding of h...
Article
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to inform researchers who are examining the adoption of autonomous vehicle technology and to provide marketing insights for developers and manufacturers of such vehicles and their ancillary technologies. Design/methodology/approach This study assesses consumer attitudes and behavioral intentions regarding auton...

Increasingly, spatial decision support systems (SDSS) help consumers, businesses and governmental entities make decisions involving geospatial data. Understanding if, and how, user- and task-characteristics impact decision-performance will allow developers of SDSS to maximize decision-making performance. Furthermore, scholars can benefit from a mor...
Article
Increasingly, consumers, businesses and governmental entities make decisions involving geospatial data using spatial decision support systems (SDSS). One frequent geospatial decision task is that of location selection, which may involve determining the best site for a new retail store or locating an ideal neighborhood for a future city park. Online...
Chapter
This chapter presents an extension of the Emergency Description Information Technology (EDIT) project to facilitate the effective collection and communication of information during an emergency. New academic findings and industry technologies inform a modified research framework. The research framework contains four primary research areas that are...
Article
Cloud computing presents an opportunity for organizations to leverage affordable, scalable, and agile technologies. However, even with the demonstrated value of cloud computing, organizations have been hesitant to adopt such technologies. Based on a multi-theoretical research model, this paper provides an empirical study targeted to better understa...
Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter describes the process used to design, develop and assess a faculty-centric virtual Community of Practice (vCoP) within the environment of post-secondary educational. The primary goals for developing a faculty-centric vCoP were to provide: on-demand, multi-modal learning opportunities for globally-distributed faculty with diverse abilit...

Online mapping services, such as Google Maps and Bing Maps, have become increasingly popular. In addition to providing map, navigation, and directory information, such services provide third-party applications with a technology framework including geospatial-visualization capabilities. For instance, consumers often use location-based services and s...
Chapter
This paper presents a novel approach toward facilitating the effective collection and communication of information during an emergency. Initially, this research examines current emergency response information workflows and emergency responder dispatch criteria. A process for the optimization of these workflows and criteria, along with a suggested m...
Article
Full-text available
An understanding of geospatial reasoning ability (GRA) is essential to human-computer interaction research, as many recent consumer and commercial technologies require an ability to interpret complex geospatial data. Individuals, as well as government, commercial and military organizations, use such technologies regularly. For instance, consumer te...
