The Influence of New Business Models and Technology on Technology Strategy and Partnerships
In a fiercely competitive market, companies must transform their business models and embrace new approaches. This unique comprehensive collection presents the latest multi-disciplinary research in strategic digital outsourcing and digital business strategy, providing a management decision-making framework for successful long-term relationships and collaboration based on trust and governance, including contriubution by Co-PI Prof. Christopher P. Holland.
“This volume offers a wonderful compendium of chapters on outsourcing that range from traditional topics such as offshore outsourcing and contractual/compliance issues to a treasure trove of forward-looking topics including the influence of new business models and technology on the outsourcing partnerships, socially-responsible outsourcing, governing multi-vendor IT outsourcing relationships and cloud computing services, blockchains, and the Internet of Things. The chapters provide insights on governing complex client/vendor relationships under turbulence. While theoretically grounded to appeal to the academic and master student audience, business practitioners too can benefit from understandable discussions of important emerging outsourcing issues and rich case studies”.Carol S.
