Industries are challenged by the rapid digitization of business models. Extant market players are characterized by a long grown IT infrastructure and complex organizational structures. The emergence of digital opportunities such as (big) data analysis, artificial intelligence, or machine learning forces organizations to transform their strategies, capabilities, and structures to provide agile and innovative business reactions. These challenges associated with digital transformation will embrace a broader range of the workforce and intensify the interaction and cooperation of established organizational units.

Based on three (internationally published) studies, Nico Wunderlich will discuss how digital transformation changes the co-working between the business and IT-side on different organizational levels. In this presentation, Nico Wunderlich will present who influences a fused IT and business strategy on managerial level, how IT decisions are allocated between IT and business units and how digital transformation moves the creation of organizational innovativeness within different hierarchical levels.
