Business conducted via telecommunications networks, known as e-business, is a primary driver of the present economic development. The future of national economies depends on the proper deployment of the big ideas that have emerged from the research and practice in the domain. It is vital to give our scholarly attention to both the positive sides of these ideas, which are to be fostered, and to the dark sides that can undermine this development and are often overlooked. I shall analyze the significance of the ten ideas that I consider the key to the further development of e-business and, taking the Janusian view, bring out their positive and negative aspects. The analysis brings out a program of fruitful research.
I will go on to discuss the role of research programs in Information Systems that can lead to a progress in the domain, focusing in particular on the need to combine the sociotechnical analysis with synthesis via design-science work. It is important to maintain the often missing balance between the two sides of the field. Based on the decades of my experience as Editor-in-Chief of two leading journals, I will discuss the epistemological and instrumental roles such journals play in the discipline. The fostering role of the journals should accompany the common filtering role. I will offer pragmatic advice on achieving publication in such venues that aim at accepting significant novel contributions.
