Digital Business, Digital Services and Digital Economy

Aalto's research in Information Systems Science research focuses on:

  • ICT in service design and management
  • Business models for E-, M- and multi-channel business
  • ERP and IS development and implementation
  • Consumer use of ICT
  • Open Data and Open Source business models

Our research deals with adoption, use and impacts of ICT on consumers, companies, and society at large. We use multi-disciplinary approaches and apply theories from a number of reference disciplines, including management, organization sciences, marketing, and economics.

The topic is mainly studied at the Department of Information and Service Economy (Aalto BIZ), at their Information Systems Science subfield.
