Using Alliances to Increase IT Capabilities
Paul Pierce, 2013-10-25

Abstract: ICT is perhaps the most important, emblematic and ubiquitous technology of contemporary society. For many incumbent firms, the infusion of ICT into their industries poses both threats and opportunities. It entails a number of managerial challenges and might drive significant shifts in firm performance. In these processes, knowledge of what possibilities and limitations reside in ICT will be a key success factor. This thesis deals with the challenges that arise when incumbents ally with ICT firms – our case is the security industry – which has had a strong analogue technology base in the past, but where ICT offers opportunity for business development now as well as in the foreseeable future.
