The Business of Systems Integration

Edited by Andrea Prencipe, Andrew Davies, and Mike Hobday

In the last twenty years, systems integration has become a key factor in the operations, strategy, and competitive advantage of major corporations in a wide variety of sectors. "Systems Integration" refers to an emerging model of industrial organization whereby firms and groups of firms combine different types of knowledge, skills and activities, as well as hardware, software, and human resources to produce new products for the marketplace. The transition towards the systems integration model has fundamental implications for the capabilities of firms. This is the first book to systematically explore systems integration from a business and innovation perspective, based on contributions from leading international scholars.
