Electronic Government Success and the Ensemble View of Information Technology

Part of the Integrated Series in Information Systems book series (ISIS, volume 31)


This chapter reviews some of the more comprehensive and integrative theoretical traditions from information systems (IS) and e-government research. Orlikowski and Iacono (2001) refer to these approaches as the ensemble view of information technologies and organization. This view argues that in order to understand information technologies, it is necessary to analyze not only the technological artifacts, but also the social and organizational aspects around those artifacts.
