8:th International Conference on Perspectives in
Business Informatics Research
BIR 2009 October 1-2, 2009
Kristianstad University College, Sweden
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) plays an increasingly important role in organizations, inter-organizational networks, society and in individual persons´ daily life. Businesses´ activities are dependent on complex, distributed software systems operating in dynamic and often unpredictably changing business environments. It is in this context that business informatics research is essential.

In order to produce and supply products and services more efficiently organizations must be able to adapt and quickly exchange information with internal and external collaborators and customers. The demands for increasing interoperability concern the technological, business process and knowledge levels. Methods, theories and tools are needed that maintain change and adaptation of business processes, organizations and their supporting software. Furthermore, recent challenges are directed to more human oriented, highly personalized and trustworthy systems enabling to cope with a huge variety of frameworks, technologies and tools needed to accommodate emerging business applications. The new methods and technologies lack enough evaluation to demonstrate that their benefits will overwhelm the payout. Therefore, one of the focuses here is on quantitative and qualitative methods for measuring, predicting, and understanding the value that information technologies bring to the enterprise and the cost before these technologies are ready to use.

The theme for this conference is therefore making businesses, people and systems interoperable and adaptive in highly interconnected and changing contexts. Specifically, the conference also welcomes contributions that concern evaluating and demonstrating all aspects of benefits of information systems in the light of their costs.

Research contributions for the conference will be on aspects and future directions in business informatics research with respect to the above theme on interoperability and adaptation, as well as on exploring scientifically the practical aspects and establishing empirically grounded analysis of business cases in order to provide a better evaluation to the applications of information technologies in industry. Contributions from both ongoing research and implications for future directions are welcome.
