Business Technologies in Contemporary Organizations

Book Description

As two areas of study that thrive on change and innovation, the combination of electronic resources and corporation management presents many challenges to researchers and professionals as information is discovered and applied to existing practices. Business Technologies in Contemporary Organizations: Adoption, Assimilation, and Institutionalization investigates the reciprocal relationship between information systems and corporations in order to understand and assess the benefits of this partnership as technology continues to progress. This publication is an essential reference source for researchers, practitioners, and students interested in the practical and theoretical implementation of information systems and electronic resources in corporations and firms.
