Track D: Information Management

Introduction
Information is used for business almost in every aspect. Therefore, high requirements are often stated for information systems regarding their availability, reliability, continuity, controllability, inter-operational compatibility, flexibility and maintainability. Additionally, information must be accurate, complete, relevant and valuable. Consequently, we have to meet such questions as: How do we manage information systems development projects? How can we solve an emerging business problem by employing an information system? How do we evaluate an information system from the perspective of its applications or performance? All those are not only the task for the specialists of information systems management, but also the task for all levels of managers and all functional areas of business. The objective of the Information Management track here is to be a platform for you to exhibit your interesting and new research results in IM. The research could be theoretical, empirical, experimental, design science, and policy-oriented. We welcome papers in dealing with any one of the following topics (and see some examples as bullets mentioned).
