Drei Konferenzbeiträge auf der diesjährigen ECIS akzeptiert/en
Three Papers Accepted at ECIS 2018
Great success for the Critical Information Infrastructures group of Prof. Ali Sunyaev. Three papers were accepted for presentation at the 26th European Conference of Information Systems (ECIS 2018) in Portsmouth, UK. The papers are:
"State Of Play: A Citation Network Analysis Of Healthcare Gamification Studies" by Manuel Schmidt-Kraepelin, Scott Thiebes, Devin Baumsteiger, and Ali Sunyaev.
Abstract: Researchers and practitioners alike increasingly recognize gamification as a potential tool to evoke desired behaviours in patients, healthcare professionals, and healthy end-users aiming to live a healthier lifestyle. Thus, the number of scientific publications in healthcare gamification is rapidly increasing and due to the interdisciplinary nature of the research field, knowledge about this topic is being scattered over many research communities. Building on a large number of articles on healthcare gamification and utilizing citation network analysis, this study sheds further light on the extant knowledge on healthcare gamification. Based on our approach, we were able to (1) evaluate essential articles and authors covering the topic, (2) analyse the recent development of research on healthcare gamification, and (3) identify past research foci and knowledge gaps in our knowledge on healthcare gamification. By doing so, we call for further research on healthcare gamification and provide researchers with potential avenues for future research projects.

"Paving The Way For Real-Time Delphi In Information Systems Research: A Synthesis Of Survey Instrument Designs And Feedback Mechanisms" by Scott Thiebes, Dino Scheidt, Manuel Schmidt-Kraepelin, Alexander Benlian, and Ali Sunyaev
Abstract: Real-time Delphi is an information technology-enabled extension of the popular Delphi method. While Real-time Delphi is acknowledged to decrease study durations and panel attrition by employing information technology to engage participants in an asynchronous fashion, its broad adoption in the information systems community has yet to be seen. Given the growing wake of ubiquity of the conventional Delphi method in information systems and the technique’s lasting implementation uncertainties, now seems to be the right time to revisit Real-time Delphi to give way to calls of a better empirical foundation. This research reviews extant literature on Real-time Delphi and provides a synthesis of employed survey instrument designs and feedback mechanisms (two central aspects of Real-time Delphi). It contributes to the methodological knowledge base of information systems research by serving as an implementation reference and foundation on which researchers can build to establish Real-time Delphi as a novel and promising addition to the information systems research methods repertoire.

Seeing Service Certification “Eye To Eye” - The Role Of Perceptual Congruence Between Customers And Providers In Is Certification by Nils Siegfried, Julian Löbbers, Alexander Benlian, and Ali Sunyaev
Abstract: Certifications are means to overcome information asymmetry between customers and providers in the adoption of electronic services. While certifications are being progressively used in diverse electronic markets, research is inconclusive regarding their effectiveness. A previously unconsidered cause might be differing preferences for a certification’s structural elements by providers and customers. We argue that such perceptual incongruence, caused by differing incentives and goals, may lead to a lack of align- ment regarding the usage intention for a certified service. However, when providers and customers’ perceptions overlap, they may have aligned intentions to rely on certification. We argue that shared preferences for certifications’ structural dimensions – core aspects defining the what (i.e., content), who (i.e., source) and how (i.e., process) of a certification – lead to more congruent perceptions. To test our hypothesis, we conducted a preliminary online experiment with 152 cloud service consumers. Surpris- ingly, we could not confirm a significant effect of perceptual congruence on the alignment of usage intention for a certified service. However, our hypotheses cannot finally be rejected due to low overall model fit and require further investigation. Hence, we discuss results and lay out an agenda for our next steps, concentrating on qualitative interviews in the professional cloud computing context.
