From IT Assets to Business and Economic Value

This paper conceptually develops a Business Value if IT (BVIT) model, conjointly and innovatively using four theoretical frameworks, the Resource-Based View (RBV) of the firm, Knowledge-Based View (KBV), Contingency theory, and the Strategic Alignment Model. The developed model proposes that IT-enabled knowledge and communication capabilities, which actually create IT-enabled Economic Value (EVIT), can be driven by organizational strategy and resources via their impact on IT strategy and resources. The study contributes to the extant body of knowledge by developing three new IT-driven business value constructs: Know-Tech, Com-Tech, and EVIT along with theoretical grounding and implications about empirical measurements.
