Openness as an IS/IT Strategy - Open Data, Models, Platforms, and Sources
(Track 21 at ECIS 2013, June 6-7, 2013, Utrecht)
IS/IT-enabled "open" phenomena—e.g., open source software, open data, open content, open innovation, collective intelligence, or crowdsourcing—have emerged as major themes in IS/IT practice and research.

Others have extended IS/IT-enabled open strategies to other parts of the "value chain" of their business: Many businesses now rely on IS/IT-based open and social approaches for marketing their product and for providing costumer support. In addition, many governments and non-for-profit organizations use or investigate open strategies.
