December 7, 2012: Management Information Systems Colloquium
D.J. Wu, Associate Professor, Scheller School of Business, Georgia Institute of Technology, presented "Network of Practice, Information Technology Spillovers, and Productivity: Evidence from Enterprise Software."
Prior research on information technology (IT) spillover often uses spillover pools with undefined transmission mechanisms and ignores the direction of the spillovers. We introduce an alternative measurement of IT spillover derived from a different transmission pathway: knowledge transfer through interactions in an Internet-enabled network of practices where IT professionals exchange ideas and help each other resolve technical problems they encounter. Our method separates the effects of knowledge spillover from spillovers that are embedded in intermediate inputs. We show that IT knowledge spillovers through these networks contribute positively to firm productivity. The economic payoff of the spillovers is significant: by our estimate, one percent increase in the inward knowledge spillovers translates to a $0.46 million increase in added value for an average firm in our sample. Further, we find that IT spillovers complement a firm’s investment in IT capital in the sense that the productivity of IT capital is increased with higher level of IT spillovers, but such complementarity does not exist for either non-IT capital or non-IT labor. We discuss the implications for research and practice.
