The Center conducts both academic and applied research. CDT serves as an interdisciplinary research institute drawing on economists, behavioral scientists, sociologists and computer scientists to help understand the emerging digital business environment. Our research areas address key constituencies for the research – business executives seeking to understand how to adapt their enterprises for success in a digital economy, technology executives focused on making critical IT-related decisions that advance company performance, managers of social enterprises and IT industry executives.

Our current focus is on five critical issue areas: 

  • Economics of the Digital World
  • Digital Services Delivery
  • Digital Business Models
  • Big Data and Analysis
  • Emerging Digital Trends and Applications
