Providing durable competitive advantages, the information system (IS) is recognized as a highly strategic element of every organization. Today, a new evolutionary process is at work: from now on, we are moving from organization 2.0, characterized by the social era of web 2.0 and its social networks, to organization 3.0, also referred to as « the intelligent organization », which is entwined with the advent of the Internet of Things and the knowledge and data economies. The SMART² research team is focused on this trajectory of organization transformation through the IS (from the traditional organization to the intelligent organization, by way of the socio-digital organization).
The central theme « information systems, information usage and digital transformation » can be broken down into three main topics:
Concepts, models, methods and technological solutions.
Analysis of the way in which information technology and communication are used: acceptance, adoption and appropriation.
The management and governance of information systems within an organization: strategic alignment, value creation, performance measurement, resource management, risk management etc.
