Handbook of Research on Interdisciplinary Approaches to E-Business Technology
A book edited by Rocci Luppicini (University of Ottawa)
Understanding the increasingly complex, dynamic, and uncertain intertwining of Internet technologies and business systems creates new challenges and opportunities that necessitate the transcending of disciplinary boundaries. Important questions in this regard include:  What types of organizational changes are influenced by the introduction of new Internet technologies, digital devices, and e-services in society? How do new information technologies and system architectures accommodate changes in online business transactions, services, organizations and communities? How do information and telecommunication technologies influence society and create innovations in fields such as health, education, law and visual arts?  How does the Internet of Things and advances in AI redefine human-human and human-machine networks? What are the social, cultural, ethical, legal, and political challenges arising from the integration of digital technologies in life and work at the individual, organizational, and public level? Interdisciplinary approaches to E-Business Technology integrate knowledge from multiple disciplines and fields required for complex problem solving and innovation at the interface of business, technology and society. This research handbook provides comprehensive coverage of current research within E-Business Technology as a filed of interdisciplinary research that spans e-health, e-government, e-learning, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, data analytics, and mobile commerce. It will also cover the new ethical, legal, social, and cultural issues connected to the current and future developments in the field. This is the first major research publication that offers a holistic vision of E-Business Technology to help leverage knowledge concerning current practices, challenges and future opportunities.
