How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Organizations are increasingly using sustainability reports to inform their stakeholders and the public about their sustainability practices. We apply topic modelling to 9,514 sustainability reports published between 1999 and 2015 in order to identify common topics and, thus, the most common practices described in these reports. In particular, we i...
This paper reports on the results of a design science research (DSR) study that develops design principles for information systems (IS) that support organisational sensemaking in environmental sustainability transformations. We identify initial design principles based on salient affordances required in organisational sensemaking and revise them thr...
A United Nations survey identified environmental sustainability as the most important issue of the future Watson et al. (MIS Quarterly, 34(1), 23–38, 2010).
In 1994 the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, referred to transnational crime as having been “organized along relatively simple lines and involv[ing] a limited number of activities” by Boutros-Ghali (Vital Speeches Day 61: 130, 1994).
Environmental sustainability is one of the most important topics of our time. Energy consumption is a significant aspect of environmental sustainability, as it is a major source of pollution. In order to determine how information systems can assist organizations in reducing energy consumption, we first identify energy-related activities of organiza...
This paper reports on an action design research study that aims to identify design principles for information systems (IS) that allow for sensemaking in the context of environmental sustainability transformations. Green e-community is presented as a prototype that instantiates a set of initial design principles and provides the foundation for subse...
With in-memory technology, all data and applications are kept in the computer’s main memory to avoid expensive mechanical hard-drive I/O access, reduce latency times, and increase the ability to process large volumes of data or complex data. In this “innovation and novel concepts” article, we discuss how in-memory technology may create business val...
