Digital Technologies

On this page you will find information about the research topic Digital Technologies.

Short Description

Digital technologies differ in their effectiveness and scope of impact. Some changes have a small impact, while others have disruptive potential. But on which contextual factors does this depend? Moreover, digital technologies not only bring benefits, but also have downsides that manifest themselves for example in threats to the security and privacy of individuals and organizations. What measures can be taken to get a grip on these downsides of digital technologies?

  • What is the disruptive potential of different digital technologies (e.g. cloud, big data, IoT, etc.)?
  • What significance do cloud and data-based business models have in the digital transformation?
  • How do digital technologies change the core elements of a company (i.e. strategy, business model, organization, processes, employees, culture)?
  • What do technological and organizational mechanisms of defense look like for organizations in the age of Wikileaks?
