Title Mind the Gap
Abstract Deployment of IT is little discussed in research literature, despite the fact that a successful deployment encompasses complexities and difficulties well worth investigating. The deployment phase of IT systems can be a make-or-break moment for usefulness of a system due to sociotechnical factors. I argue that there is a gap between the technological artefact produced and the social reality that govern how well an IT system will fit in an organisation. In this presentation i propose a framework for analysing deployment of IT from a sociotechnical perspective.
