Inhoud vak

Most of the course matter will be dealt with in context of the question:
How can digital innovations and information systems (IS) contribute to
value creation? To answer this question this course will consider an
organization’s (actual) IS resources in context of digital trends.
Today’s business managers must be able to address the implications of
digital innovations like social networking (e.g. Twitter, FaceBook,
LinkedIn,, and Pinterest),blockchain technology,
internet of things, virtual reality, big data, and artificial
