  • Exploring the use of self-sovereign identity for event ticketing systems

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Ticket fraud and ticket scalping activities often cause high costs as well as trust concerns for fans buying event tickets, especially in the secondary ticketing market. To address these issues, several publications and projects have proposed using blockchain technology to enable digital trust and ticket verifiability and thus to improve event ticketing systems. However, these approaches exhibit considerable privacy challenges and fall short concerning reliable, efficient visitor identification, which is necessary for controlling secondary market transactions. We demonstrate how a novel paradigm for end-user digital identity management, called self-sovereign identity (SSI), can be utilized to gain secondary market control. To do so, we follow a rigorous design science research approach to build and evaluate an SSI-based event ticketing framework. Our findings demonstrate that SSI-based event ticketing can enable efficient secondary market control by facilitating a practical implementation of the centralized exchange model. To generalize our results, we derive design principles for the efficient, reliable, and privacy-oriented ticket and identity verification and the use of revocation registries.

  • It is not (only) about privacy: How multi-party computation redefines
           control, trust, and risk in data sharing

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract:  Abstract  Firms are often reluctant to share data because of mistrust, concerns over control, and other risks. Multi-party computation (MPC) is a new technique to compute meaningful insights without having to transfer data. This paper investigates if MPC affects known antecedents for data sharing decisions: control, trust, and risks. Through 23 qualitative interviews in the automotive industry, we find that MPC (1) enables new ways of technology-based control, (2) reduces the need for inter-organizational trust, and (3) prevents losing competitive advantage due to data leakage. However, MPC also creates the need to trust technology and introduces new risks of data misuse. These impacts arise if firms perceive benefits from sharing data, have high organizational readiness, and perceive data as non-sensitive. Our findings show that known antecedents of data sharing should be specified differently with MPC in place. Furthermore, we suggest reframing MPC as a data collaboration technology beyond enhancing privacy.

  • Automated identification of different lead users regarding the innovation
           process

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Lead users are often established in an organizational innovation process to attenuate the difficulties a company faces, such as high costs or the obscurity of customers’ needs. But to benefit from these lead users a major challenge is to characterize and identify them especially in the fast-moving world of social media. Therefore, we aim to design a tool to identify lead users automatically for the two innovation phases (“Idea generation” and “Development”) by combining different approaches such as social network analysis, topic modeling and sentiment analysis. Thus, we consulted the design science approach and applied our artifact to 11,481 contributions of an online digital platform. The technical realization of the six different characteristics and their respective weighting according to the different phases of the innovation process resulted in different lead users and showed the necessity of distinguishing between them. Our results were evaluated and confirmed by the identified lead users and an expert. Hence, our investigation contributes to both practice and theory (kernel theories and design theory) alike.

  • Exploring interdependent privacy – Empirical insights into users’
           protection of others’ privacy on online platforms

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Recent information privacy research has started to spark a debate about privacy infringements that happen not on an individual, but on a multi-party level. Here, a person’s own information privacy is affected by the decisions of others – a phenomenon referred to as interdependent privacy. Building on the 3R Interdependent Privacy Protection Framework, we explore the underlying mechanisms of how and why interdependent privacy violations happen and how they can be remedied. Drawing on an online vignette experiment (N = 330), we investigate the efficacy of an interdependent privacy salience nudge and reveal that it can decrease the likelihood that users disclose others’ personal information by 62%. Furthermore, we develop a novel measurement instrument and empirically validate that users’ decision to disclose others’ personal information to an online platform is formed via a serial mediation mechanism through users’ realization of the data transfer, recognition of others’ ownership, and respect for others’ rights. We discuss important implications for both theory and practice.

  • Perceived fairness of direct-to-consumer genetic testing business models

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Although consumers and experts often express concerns regarding the questionable business practices of direct-to-consumer (DTC) genetic testing services (e.g., reselling of consumers’ genetic data), the DTC genetic testing market keeps expanding rapidly. We employ retail fairness as our theoretical lens to address this seeming paradox and conduct a discrete choice experiment with 16 attributes to better understand consumers’ fairness perceptions of DTC genetic testing business models. Our results suggest that, while consumers perceive privacy-preserving DTC genetic testing services fairer, price is the main driver for fairness perception. We contribute to research on consumer perceptions of DTC genetic testing by investigating consumer preferences of DTC genetic testing business models and respective attributes. Further, this research contributes to knowledge about disruptive business models in healthcare and retail fairness by contextualizing the concept of retail fairness in the DTC genetic testing market. We also demonstrate how to utilize discrete choice experiments to elicit perceived fairness.

  • Microexpressions in digital humans: perceived affect, sincerity, and
           trustworthiness

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Digital agents with human-like characteristics have become ubiquitous in our society and are increasingly relevant in commercial applications. While some of them closely resemble humans in appearance (e.g., digital humans), they still lack many subtle social cues that are important for interacting with humans. Among them are the so-called microexpressions— facial expressions that are short, subtle, and involuntary. We investigate to what extent microexpressions in digital humans influence people's perceptions and decision-making in order to inform the practices of digital human's design. Our two experiments applied four types of microexpressions based on emotion type (happiness and anger) and intensity (normal and extreme). This paper is among the first to design and evaluate microexpressions with different intensity levels in digital humans. In particular, we leverage the possibilities of digitally (re)designing humans and human perception. These possibilities are feasible only in a digital environment, where it is possible to explore various microexpressions beyond real human beings' physical capabilities.

  • Invite everyone to the table, but not to every course. How Design-Thinking
           collaboration can be implemented in smart cities to design digital urban
           services

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Innovative collaboration strategies are a promising tool for fostering the governance of smart cities while acknowledging citizen centricity. During implementation, however, determining the number and background of the involved actors is challenging. The Design-Thinking (DT) approach appears suitable for addressing this issue as it offers a concrete and adaptable course of action. The present contribution involves a study on implementing DT principles in a German health resort and identifies three critical components: (1) team, (2) process, and (3) workspace. Our use case is an adaptable project- and workshop plan that encourages the implementation of DT collaboration in smart cities when designing digital services. Our results provide initial guidelines on how to involve diverse actors, when to integrate trained DT coaches, and how to design collaborative innovation in a digital way. The practice-oriented insights gained in the study can be applied, adapted, and discussed in other smart cities and citizen-centered projects.

  • Developing design principles to standardize e-commerce ecosystems

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Platform ecosystems have captured a variety of markets, enabling coordination, transactions, and value co-creation between independent actors. A focal platform constitutes the central nexus of e-commerce ecosystems and fosters the interaction among ecosystem participants through their boundary resources. Standardizing these interfaces simplifies ecosystem entry for developers and increases the number of participants propelling the network effects, and thus the overall value of the ecosystem. Currently, there is a lack of prescriptive design knowledge guiding platform owners in designing successful e-commerce ecosystems. Addressing this issue, we followed a dual approach, reporting on a systematic literature review in which we identified design requirements and complemented these with a multiple-case study on selected e-commerce ecosystems. Aggregating the requirements resulted in six meta-requirements and 19 design principles that foster the standardization of focal e-commerce platforms. Our design principles simplify the development of complements and enable multi-homing for developers due to possible standardization across ecosystems.

  • Uncovering the identity of Electronic Markets research through text mining
           techniques

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract As an established academic journal in the e-commerce and digital platforms fields, Electronic Markets (EM) features a diverse range of topics and occupies a significant role in the information systems field. The study investigates EM’s topic diversity over the time period 2009–2020 using a text mining analysis and a bibliometric analysis and identifies 28 cluster groups. The analysis reveals that the top three topics are 1) service quality, 2) blockchain and other shared trust building solutions, their impact and credibility, as well as 3) consumer buying behavior and interactions. EM's core identity lies in a balanced set of core themes that bring technological, business or human/ social perspectives to the research of networked business and digital economy. This includes research on digital and smart services, applications, consumer behavior and business models, as well as technology and e-commerce data. Ethical and sustainability related topics are however still less present in EM.

  • Digital valuation of personality using personal tokens

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Attempts to valuate personality and personal brand in the digital economy face significant problems when it comes to the tools of such an activity. The main aim of this paper is to consider a personal token as the new means of personality valuation and to propose tools of its financial and network valuation. We applied financial analysis, content analysis, and statistical analysis, using data from the platform dedicated to personal token issuers. Financial valuation of personal tokens was performed using a modified Network Value to Transaction ratio (NVT). The personality types of the tokenised persons were determined based on Bartle’s Four Player Types model and the Big Five Personality Traits model. The issuers of personal tokens were grouped with a use of clustering analysis and the differences in score on personality traits were tested accordingly. Our results uncovered the novel means of personality and personal brand valuation which is a personal token and allowed us to differentiate two groups of personal token issuers based on their personality traits and activity profile.

  • Improving customer satisfaction in proactive service design

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract As an emergent variant of digital and smart services, proactive services (PAS) do not wait for customers to make the first move, but proactively participate in customers’ lives and make decisions on their behalf. Due to their novelty, the literature on PAS is in its infancy. Specifically, there is a lack of guidance on designing PAS to meet customer needs. Hence, we examined how customers assess specific features of PAS and whether their assessments differ according to personality traits. To this end, we conducted an online survey via the crowdsourcing platform Prolific, which yielded 259 valid responses. We used a methodological combination of the Kano model, self-stated importance method, and the Five Factor model. Our results reveal that, at the moment, customers do not value features of PAS related to autonomy and that customers engage in paradoxical behavior when assessing the use of personal data. These results allow for a more precise classification and prioritization of the features of PAS tuned to a customer’s most prevalent personality trait.

  • Understanding reviewer characteristics in online reviews via network
           structural positions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract With the prevalence of online review websites, understanding online reviewer characteristics has become important, as such an understanding provides brand managers with opportunities to segment their markets, target influencers, and develop effective marketing strategies. Nonetheless, past studies have overlooked the role of network structural positions in the characteristics of online reviewers. Accordingly, using data from Yelp websites as samples, this study attempted to explore the differences in reviewer characteristics by network structural positions. The study used multiple data collection and analysis approaches, including web scraping, network analysis, and statistical analysis. The results of this study showed that compared to peripheral reviewers, core reviewers exhibited significantly more photos and brands reviewed and included a higher proportion of early reviewers. The study has significant theoretical and practical implications for researchers and brand managers who are interested in understanding online review markets.

  • Archetypes of open-source business models

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The open-source paradigm offers a plethora of opportunities for innovative business models (BMs) as the underlying codebase of the technology is accessible and extendable by external developers. However, finding the proper configuration of open-source business models (OSBMs) is challenging, as existing literature gives guidance through commonly used BMs but does not describe underlying design elements. The present study generates a taxonomy following an iterative development process based on established guidelines by analyzing 120 OSBMs to complement the taxonomy's conceptually-grounded design elements. Then, a cluster-based approach is used to develop archetypes derived from dominant features. The results show that OSBMs can be classified into seven archetypical patterns: open-source platform BM, funding-based BM, infrastructure BM, Open Innovation BM, Open Core BM, proprietary-like BM, and traditional open-source software (OSS) BM. The results can act as a starting point for further investigation regarding the use of the open-source paradigm in the era of digital entrepreneurship. Practitioners can find guidance in designing OSBMs.

  • Perceived privacy risk in the Internet of Things: determinants,
           consequences, and contingencies in the case of connected cars

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The Internet of Things (IoT) is permeating all areas of life. However, connected devices are associated with substantial risks to users’ privacy, as they rely on the collection and exploitation of personal data. The case of connected cars demonstrates that these risks may be more profound in the IoT than in extant contexts, as both a user's informational and physical space are intruded. We leverage this unique setting to collect rich context-immersive interview (n = 33) and large-scale survey data (n = 791). Our work extends prior theory by providing a better understanding of the formation of users’ privacy risk perceptions, the effect such perceptions have on users’ willingness to share data, and how these relationships in turn are affected by inter-individual differences in individuals’ regulatory focus, thinking style, and institutional trust.

  • A multilevel, multi-mode framework for standardization in digital B2B
           platform eco-systems in international cargo transportation—A multiple
           case study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Standardization is gaining importance for digital platform eco-systems as they try to balance both stability and flexibility of their core as well as their boundary resources. Our knowledge on which factors influence standardization processes in business-to-business (B2B) focused digital platform eco-systems remains limited. Using three B2B platform eco-systems from the cargo transportation and seaport eco-system context, we apply a multiple case study to investigate which factors affect the standardization mode and the standard adoption. Based on 19 interviews and a systematic coding procedure, we identified 24 factors and cluster them into four overarching themes. We show the relatedness between standardization and innovation research, identify standard characteristics as the most important theme of factors and show that standardization has to be seen as a dynamic and interconnected process, as some factors are interdependent but the controllability varies between factors. Lastly, implications of these results and future research directions are discussed.

  • Cultural differences in hospitality service evaluations: mining insights
           of user generated content

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Online peer-to-peer platforms have been widely utilized to facilitate sharing vast amounts of user-generated content (UGC) in the hospitality industry. However, research on the cultural impacts of the broad spectrum of UGC remains nascent and limited. This study therefore elaborates how the hospitality service dimensions that are reflected in UGC both predict service evaluation and are contingent on a reviewer’s prevailing culture. We analyzed a usable sample of 9,257 hotel reviews from 148 countries with latent Dirichlet allocation and aspect-based sentiment analysis algorithms to identify the top service features and corresponding polarity scores. Machine learning identified three dimensions of hospitality service quality: adaptability, reliable delivery, and tangibles. These three dimensions predict customers’ overall hotel ratings, and the magnitude and direction of their effects depend on alignments of cultural orientations. Following Hofstede’s cultural dimensions, reliable delivery and tangibles align with individualism and uncertainty avoidance cultures. Adaptability aligns with power distance, masculinity, long-term orientation, and indulgence cultures.
