Workshop ICT Trends for Enterprises
To be held in CENTERIS 2015 – International Conference on ENTERprise Information Systems
Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal, 7-9 October 2015
AIS Affiliated Conference



The social business is based on technology trends (powerful mobile devices, broadband Internet, and low-cost data storage), work (culture, globalization) and society (propensity for sharing). This new way of doing business will enable a paradigm shift, "comes out of the hierarchy and works on the net", which will surely be the "essence of the fast enterprises and the next generation."

Nowadays, according to the McKinsey Global Institute, in its report "The social economy: Unlocking value and productivity through social technologies", there are over 1.5 billion users of social networks, 80% is the proportion of total users that interact with social networks regularly, 70% is the proportion of companies using social technologies, and it is used about 28 hours a week to write emails, search for information and perform internal collaboration.

Strategies of platform and application integration need to be established and social technology tools need to be integrated, while a common culture of collaborative communication has to be maintained. Questions of user adoption, communication facilitation and measurable business value are arising. Benefits of information sharing, interactive knowledge exchange and usability extension seem to be apparent, whereas concerns of technical operationalization, security control and practicability of social technology features are still persistent. This workshop encourages studies on technical, social and theoretical issues in ICT trends for enterprises that will interest both practitioners and researchers.
