IS Analysts & The Digital Firm

2 Mar

Today I will continue my discussion on the forces that affect the work of IS analysts

Emergence of the Digital Firm

A digital firm is one in which uses digital technology to enable business relationships. Their business processes are carried out through digital networks spanning the entire organisation or linking multiple organisations.

Due to the emergence of the digital firm, the work of an IS analyst is now centred upon:
• Digitally enabling the firm’s relationships with customers, suppliers and employees
• Carrying out core business processes through digital networks
• Digitally managing corporate assets
• Sensing and responding rapidly to environmental changes

An IS analyst must use their skill base to achieve these requirements as digital technology is becoming increasingly popular.

This video explains how the digital firm uses IS to manage their supply chain. Enjoy!
