• A 2020 perspective on the building of online trust in e-business relationships

      Stouthuysen, Kristof (Electronic Commerce Research and Applications, 2020)
      Perhaps the most important trend we observe in an increasing digitalized landscape, is that the internet technology allows organizations and individuals to interact across the globe. More and more organizations, both start-ups and more mature ones, ranging from retail to healthcare to energy, from public to private institutions are aware about the possibilities of extending their services outside their walled offices and physical points of contacts. E-consumers also seem more satisfied with the possibility to interact and transact with organizations without the constraints of time and space.

      This paper examines incremental financing decisions within high-growth businesses. A large longitudinal dataset, free of survivorship bias, to cover financing events of high-growth businesses for up to 8 years is analyzed. The empirical evidence shows that profitable businesses prefer to finance investments with retained earnings, even if they have unused debt capacity. External equity is particularly important for unprofitable businesses with high debt levels, limited cash flows, high risk of failure or significant investments in intangible assets. These findings are consistent with the extended pecking order theory controlling for constraints imposed by debt capacity. It suggests that new equity issues are particularly important to allow high-growth businesses to grow beyond their debt capacity.

    • Addressable ads are shaping the future of TV Marketing. Combining the benefits of digital advertising with the power of the big screen

      Combining the benefits of digital advertising with the power of the big screen With the rise of digital media and big data, the media landscape has gone through turbulent times. Technology is developing more rapidly than ever, and we are now able to collect and process data in volumes and formats that we never could before. Digital companies were the first to jump on this train of technological revolution and are now harnessing the power of data. Where the TV landscape had barely changed during the past decades, it is now feeling the heat of digitisation. Digital channels are offering interesting alternatives to linear TV in terms of content and experience, and digital advertising has been growing exponentially during the last decade. In turn, TV has reacted with digital initiatives of its own, blurring the distinction between traditional media and digital media. Nonetheless, there is still a long road ahead before they get to par with the tech giants and truly adopt a technology- and data-driven way of working. It is safe to say that digitisation has shaken the entire TV ecosystem to its foundations. Various factors are threatening the comfortable position that TV advertising has been in for the last few decades. Both consumers and marketers are changing their behaviour and expectations, and digital advertising is taking advantage of this new vacuum by answering their needs. When looking for opportunities to try and combat the dominance of big tech, ‘addressable advertising’ might be the answer. This innovative advertising technique on TV brings together the benefits of TV advertising and those of digital advertising. Combining the best of both worlds, addressable advertising makes it possible to target specific households via their set top box with TV ads, whilst at the same time offering opportunities to improve campaign measurement. However, there are still some challenges ahead such as scale, standardisation, cost and general inertia. And as addressable advertising is highly data-driven, this advertising technique is also closely linked to the challenging topic of privacy and ethics. In order to get access to data, companies will have to give their customers enough value in return for their data.

    • Big data capabilities: An organizational information processing perspective

      Isik, Öykü (2015)
      Big data is at the pinnacle of its hype cycle, offering big promise. Everyone wants a piece of the pie, yet not many know how to start and get the most out of their big data initiatives. We suggest that realizing benefits with big data depends on having the right capabilities for the right problems. When there is a discrepancy between these, organizations struggle to make sense of their data. Based on information processing theory, in this research-in-progress we suggest that there needs to be a fit between big data processing requirements and big data processing capabilities, so that organizations can realize value from their big data initiative.
