This book argues that “organizing” is a broader term than managing, as it entails understanding how people and machines interact with each other; how resources, data, goods are exchanged in complex and intertwined value chains; and how lines of action and activities can be articulated using flexible protocols and often ad-hoc processes in situated practices of use and production. The book presents a collection of research papers shedding new light on these phenomena and related practices from both academic and professional perspectives. Given the plurality of views that it offers, the book makes a relevant contribution to the understanding and appreciation of the complexity of the digital world at various levels of granularity. It focuses on how individuals, communities and the coopetitive societies of our new, global and hyperconnected world produce value and pursue their objectives and ideals in mutually dependent ways. The content of the book is based on a selection of the best papers - original double-blind peer-reviewed contributions - presented at the annual conference of the Italian chapter of the AIS, which was held in Milan, Italy in October 2017.

This compendium is a collection of papers which were presented in the First International Conference on Marketing “MarkTech -2019” on the theme “Marketing to Centennials in Digital World” organized by Department of MBA, I.T.S Engineering College, Greater Noida on April 5th, 2019. Through this compendium we aim to collate the ideas generated in the conference and bring them to the readers. Gen Z, post-millennials or centennials. Call them whatever you want, but this demographic — born roughly between 1995 and 2008 — are increasingly emerging as the most scrutinized bunch among brands and marketers, stealing the spotlight from millennials. Centennials are widely recognized as the next consumer powerhouse. That’s a lot of emerging shoppers. It won’t be long before understanding the Centennials perspective will be a key to marketing success. Centennials use different platforms for different activities. These centennials showcase and share their aspirational selves and real life moments on Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and Facebook. The collection of papers in this compendium focuses on various dimensions of on the contemporary and emerging trends of marketing to centennials in a digital world and major issues and challenges for the future marketers of business organizations. The compendium is a collection of ten selected research papers by academicians and industry functionaries. It is complied for reference of participants and other stake holders. Various marketing strategies are adopted by marketers for sustainable business in global scenario. Usage of the marketing strategies for personalization, the major requirements of Centennials and impact on business practices is an important issue which has been dealt by the contributors. Papers relating with recent technology use for effective marketing strategies are also taken care by the authors. “The Effect of Social Media Communication on Centennials Purchase Intention” exhibited the usage pattern of social media among Centennials in the NCR cities through the primary data collection while a paper titled “Continuance of Social Networking Sites in India: A Modification of Expectancy- Confirmation Theory” suggest important role of flow and perceived value in predicting the continuance intention and a moderating role of habit between continuance intention and continuance. Paper titled “Consumer Behaviour and Centennials” explained the conceptual understanding regarding factors affecting the buying decisions of the consumers in recent digitalilization era. Social Media is the core of marketing strategy for any business organization in recent times. This phenomenon is discussed by paper titled “Social Marketing in India” especially with respect to its relevance regarding the awareness of social causes with Case Studies of Two Multinational Companies i.e. Nestle Ltd. and KFC. Also Paper Titled “Personal Branding: A Theoretical Review” explored the importance of Social Media for the Personal Branding. Use of Digital Marketing for political campaigns in recent times by the political parties has increased at a phenomenal speed. Paper titled “Marketing Political Branding Digitally: How Social Media is Marketing Political Campaigns in India” dealt with this extremely important issue and focused on the individual social platform like Facebook, Twitter and Blogs are used by the political parties and evaluated the importance in recent Lok Sabha Election 2019. Technology has played an integral role in the growth of marketing over the years. As new technologies show up, marketers need to keep up with the trends to ensure they are able to speak their audience’s language. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and VR (Virtual Reality) are the latest tools used in recent times by the marketers for this purpose. Paper Titled “Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Sales” focused on the usage of AI as a marketing tool for the minimization of cost and improving the business performance. It was estimated that buying power of the centennials will reach $250 billion by 2018, which makes them an important target of banks. Almost half of the centennials today have a mobile banking app and they do not value face-to-face communication and personal advice. Banks risk losing “Z” customers if they are not able to attend customers’ needs. Paper titled “Consumer Perception on Banking Digitization - A Study of District Mandi” stated the factors that plays role to stimulate the customers for opting E-banking services. Generation “Z” Employees want highly engaged managers and regular feedback. Even though, they grew up with technology and use it to get things done, they “crave” in-person communication for feedback and to collaborate with workers. This is dealt by the paper “Challenges and Prospects in Managing Modern Workforce Mix” analyze the different value system shared by different generation and corresponding management strategies to manage generation mix in an organization. We express our gratitude and appreciate the commitment and efforts of the authors who have contributed their thoughts to cover the theme of the Conference. The diversity of thoughts of authors have made this compendium a reservoir of knowledge and will make a major reference source for future researchers on the subject. We also express our sincere gratitude to the Management, Faculty, Staff, and Students of Department of MBA, I.T.S Engineering College for their support in organizing the conference and bringing out this Compendium.

This paper seeks to provide an intellectual rationale for maintaining the centrality of preservation concepts and ethics in an increasingly digital information environment; in other words, while some long-held principles of preservation management may no longer apply, many others are still viable in high-tech situations. Libraries are rearranging budgets and raising funds for digital image conversion. They must take steps to ensure long-term access to digital image files. The proposed context for preservation action, or conditions that need to exist as steps are taken, puts a premium on the library's sense of itself as custodian of materials with social value, an organizational structure that allocates resources to preservation, and cooperative effort among institutions. Preservation action should ultimately place priority on the longevity, choice or selectivity, quality, integrity, and accessibility of the images. The paper also offers suggestions for a framework of effective preservation leadership. (Contains 10 figures and 75 references.) (BEW)

Digital media provide humans with more access to information than ever before-a computer, tablet, or smartphone can all be used to access data online and users frequently have more than one device. However, as humans continue to venture into the digital frontier, it remains to be known whether access to seemingly unlimited information is actually helping us learn and solve complex problems, or ultimately creating more difficulty and confusion for individuals and societies by offering content overload that is not always meaningful. Throughout history, technology has changed the way humans interact with the world. Improvements in tools, language, industrial machines, and now digital information technology have shaped our minds and societies. There has always been access to more information than humans can handle, but the difference now lies in the ubiquity of the Internet and digital technology, and the incredible speed with which anyone with a computer can access and participate in seemingly infinite information exchange. Humans now live in a world where mobile digital technology is everywhere, from the classroom and the doctor's office to public transportation and even the dinner table. This paradigm shift in technology comes with tremendous benefits and risks. Interdisciplinary Research (IDR) Teams at the 2012 National Academies Keck Futures Initiative Conference on The Informed Brain in the Digital World explored common rewards and dangers to Humans among various fields that are being greatly impacted by the Internet and the rapid evolution of digital technology. Keynote speaker Clifford Nass of Stanford University opened the dialogue by offering insight into what we already know about how the "information overload" of the digital world may be affecting our brains. Nass presented the idea of the "media budget," which states that when a new media emerges, it takes time away from other media in a daily time budget. When additional media appear and there is no time left in a person's daily media budget, people begin to "double book" media time. Personal computers, tablets, and smartphones make it easy to use several media simultaneously, and according to Nass, this double-booking of media can result in chronic multitasking, which effects how people store and manage memory. Although current fast-paced work and learning environments often encourage multitasking, research shows that such multitasking is inefficient, decreases productivity, and may hinder cognitive function. National Academies Keck Future Initiative: The Informed Brain in a Digital World summarizes the happenings of this conference.

The application of technology to information, communication, and culture has been through the history of humanity a key factor in social progress and well being. Literatures in the Digital Era: Theory and Praxis analyses in its twenty chapters the impacts of digital technology for the contemporary culture. The literary system is being powerfully affected in three aspects. In the first place, computer resources have been used to preserve and edit literary texts, associating to them graphical material, links with related texts or with dictionaries, and, above all, developing search tools of concordance and syntactic/semantic analysis. Secondly, we are watching the birth of a digital literature, with new generic characteristics, new creators, with knowledge of both, technological mechanisms and literary resources, and a reader capable of interpreting and enjoying texts on the screen. Thirdly, literary theory has expressed new postulates with regard to the multiple authorship of digital texts, the disintegration of the textual meaning, the intertextuality and implications of the reader in the creation process and the interpretation of the texts. These three impacts imply, for some authors, the search of a new paradigm for the creation, reading, and interpretation of digital texts, which points to a new humanism.

This book shows how business process management (BPM), as a management discipline at the intersection of IT and Business, can help organizations to master digital innovations and transformations. At the same time, it discusses how BPM needs to be further developed to successfully act as a driver for innovation in a digital world. In recent decades, BPM has proven extremely successful in managing both continuous and radical improvements in many sectors and business areas. While the digital age brings tremendous new opportunities, it also brings the specific challenge of correctly positioning and scoping BPM in organizations. This book shows how to leverage BPM to drive business innovation in the digital age. It brings together the views of the world’s leading experts on BPM and also presents a number of practical cases. It addresses mangers as well as academics who share an interest in digital innovation and business process management. The book covers topics such as BPM and big data, BPM and the Internet of Things, and BPM and social media. While these technological and methodological aspects are key to BPM, process experts are also aware that further nontechnical organizational capabilities are required for successful innovation. The ideas presented in this book have helped us a lot while implementing process innovations in our global Logistics Service Center. Joachim Gantner, Director IT Services, Swarovski AG Managing Processes – everyone talks about it, very few really know how to make it work in today’s agile and competitive world. It is good to see so many leading experts taking on the challenge in this book. Cornelius Clauser, Chief Process Officer, SAP SE This book provides worthwhile readings on new developments in advanced process analytics and process modelling including practical applications – food for thought how to succeed in the digital age. Ralf Diekmann, Head of Business Excellence, Hilti AG This book is as an important step towards process innovation systems. I very much like to congratulate the editors and authors for presenting such an impressive scope of ideas for how to address the challenging, but very rewarding marriage of BPM and innovation.

From statistical databases to story archives, from fan sites to the real-time reactions of Twitter-empowered athletes, the digital communication revolution has changed the way fans relate to LeBron's latest triple double or Tom Brady's last second touchdown pass. In this volume, contributors from Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States analyze the parallel transformation in the field of sport history, showing the ways powerful digital tools raise vital philosophical, epistemological, ontological, methodological, and ethical questions for scholars and students alike. Chapters consider how philosophical and theoretical understandings of the meaning of history influence engagement with digital history, and conceptualize the relationship between history making and the digital era. As the writers show, digital media's mostly untapped potential for studying the recent past via media like blogs, chat rooms, and gambling sites forge a symbiosis between sports and the internet while offering historians new vistas to explore and utilize. In this new era, digital history becomes a dynamic site of enquiry and discussion where scholars enter into a give-and-take with individuals and invite their audience to grapple with, rather than passively absorb, evidence. Timely and provocative, Sport History in the Digital Era affirms how the information revolution has transformed sport and sport history--and shows the road ahead. Contributors include Douglas Booth, Mike Cronin, Martin Johnes, Matthew Klugman, Geoffery Z. Kohe, Tara Magdalinski, Fiona McLachlan, Bob Nicholson, Rebecca Olive, Gary Osmond, Murray G. Phillips, Stephen Robertson, Synthia Sydnor, Holly Thorpe, and Wayne Wilson.

In this book, Kathleen Tyner examines the tenets of literacy through a historical lens to demonstrate how new communication technologies are resisted and accepted over time. New uses of information for teaching and learning create a "disconnect" in the complex relationship between literacy and schooling, and raise questions about the purposes of literacy in a global, networked, educational environment. The way that new communication technologies change the nature of literacy in contemporary society is discussed as a rationale for corresponding changes in schooling. Digital technologies push beyond alphabetic literacy to explore the way that sound, image, and text can be incorporated into education. Attempts to redefine literacy terms--computer, information, technology, visual, and media literacies--proliferate and reflect the need to rethink entrenched assumptions about literacy. These multiple literacies are advanced to help users make sense of the information glut by fostering the ability to access, analyze, and produce communication in a variety of forms. Tyner explores the juncture between two broad movements that hope to improve education: educational technology and media education. A comparative analysis of these two movements develops a vision of teaching and learning that is critical, hands on, inquiry-based, and suitable for life in a mobile, global, participatory democracy.
