Chair of Information Systems Management

The research group of Information Systems Management, led by Prof. Dr. Daniel Beimborn, focuses on research related to the management of information systems and the organizational challenges of digital innovation & transformation.

The research group is part of the Faculty of Information Systems and Applied Computer Science at the University of Bamberg. The faculty is one of the longest standing and leading higher education institutions in research and teaching of Information Systems in Germany.

The management of the information system (IS) in an organization - consisting of those technical and personnel components that are involved in the creation, processing and use of information - is an elementary component of successful organizational design, especially in the 'age of digitalization'. Due to the rapid technical progress in the IT sector (e.g. cloud computing, block chain, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence) as well as complementary changes in the area of management and organization (e.g. agile development and project management approaches, dynamic organizational structures with mixed, semi-autonomous teams or the change of digital value chains towards platforms and integrated ecosystems), there is both high potential and the necessity to accompany and help shaping these developments in research and teaching.

In contrast to the traditional view of information systems as 'contractor' of departments and corporate strategies, we pursue an innovation-oriented approach and contribute to the question of how (digital) innovation can be driven from the IT side. With this orientation we pursue exciting and relevant research topics, offer future-oriented content in teaching and provide various opportunities for cooperation with companies and other organizations.
