Zusammenfassung

Vor über zwanzig Jahren hat der Begriff ‚Informationsinfrastruktur‘ Einzug gehalten in die Wirtschaftsinformatik und verwandte Fachgebiete. Er wurde dabei aus unterschiedlichen theoretischen Perspektiven und mit unterschiedlichen praktischen Fragestellungen ausgeleuchtet. In diesem Kapitel werden vier theoretische Perspektiven auf das Phänomen der Informationsinfrastruktur dargestellt: Informationsinfrastruktur als komplexes Designobjekt, als relationales Phänomen, als Arbeitsinfrastruktur und als inter-organisationales Informationssystem. Es wird gezeigt, inwiefern diese unterschiedlichen Perspektiven Facetten eines gemeinsam erkannten neuartigen Phänomens erfassen und welche inneren Zusammenhänge es zwischen diesen Perspektiven gibt. Darüber hinaus wird auch aufgezeigt, welche theoretischen Schwächen jede dieser vier Perspektiven charakterisieren und inwiefern sich in diesen Schwächen, jeweils auf eigene Art und Weise, eine Grundthematik zeigt, die Informationsinfrastrukturen insgesamt auszeichnen, nämlich ihre eigentümliche Eigenschaft, gleichzeitig stabil und anpassungsfähig zu sein.
