Today, the information systems (IS) discipline faces new challenges. Emerging technologies as well as matured approaches for the social, technical, and developmental role of IS provide a new context for the evolution of the discipline over the next few years.

Emerging Topics and Technologies in Information Systems communicates the challenges and opportunities that information systems research is dealing with today while promoting cutting-edge research on how current IS support is creating the critical backbone for the knowledge society. This book is an essential reference for policy makers, government officers, academicians, and practitioners thirsty for knowledge on IS and IT beyond traditional textbooks.
