  Jonny Holmström PhD Now Viewing   


Jonny Holmström is a Professor at the Department of Informatics, Umeå University. He holds a Ph.D from Umeå University, where his dissertation research focused on the organizational issues involved in the adoption of IT. His research interests include IT's organizational consequences and digital business. Holmström's larger research program has examined how organizations innovate with IT -- in particular how they adapt to using technological innovations such as decision support systems, client/server development, knowledge management tools and groupware applications. Holmström is currently investigating how organizations in the process industry sector can develop sustainable competitive advantage through mindful use of IT, and how they develop effective partnership relations to cultivate such use. He is also currently investigating peer-to-peer filesharing communities. Holmström has published his research in journals such as Information and Organization, Information Resources Management Journal, Information Technology and People, Journal of AIS, Journal of Global Information Technology Management, and Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems.

My ongoing research projects are undertaken in the context of a research group focused on digital business. One of the projects we are focused heavily on at the moment is the ProcessIT project -- a joint effort with our friends at Luleå Technical University. An important part of my work is working with my creative PhD students:

- Britt-Marie Johansson (at Jönköping International Business School, third advisor)
- Katrin Jonsson (first advisor)

- Annakarin Nyberg (second advisor)
- Ulrika H. Westergren (first advisor)
- Henrik Wimelius (first advisor)
