Exploring Business Models and the Role of Information Technology on Value Creation

Paul Di Gangi
Westen Carolina University, USA


Abstract
A business model is the conceptual foundation that determines how an organization creates and captures value. Prior research suggests that three main types of business models exist--closed, open, and co-created. Central to each of these models is the role of the organizational boundary which can protect an organization’s internal resources (i.e., closed), funnel knowledge from external resources into an organization (i.e., open), or act as a bridge between the organization and its environment (i.e., co-created). The purpose of this manuscript is to highlight the characteristics of each model and outline a research agenda which explores the role information technology plays in facilitating value creation.
