Abstract

The competition in globalized markets forces organizations to provide mass-customized integrated solutions for customers. Mass-customization of integrated solutions by business network requires adaptive interactions between parties to address emerging requirements of customers. These adaptive interactions need to be enabled by dynamic networked business processes (DNBP) that are supported by high quality information. However, the dynamic collaboration between parties can result in information quality (IQ) issues such as information syntactic and semantic misalignment, information leakage, and unclear information ownership. To counter negative consequences of poor IQ on the performance, the orchestrator of business network needs to clearly recognize these IQ issues. In this paper, we develop and evaluate a framework to address potential IQ issues related to DNBP. The development of the framework is based on a three step methodology that includes the characterization of dynamism of networked business processes, the characterization of IQ dimensions, and the exploration of IQ issues. To evaluate the practical significance of the explored IQ issues, we conduct a case study in a service ecosystem that is shaped by a car leasing organization to provide integrated mobility solutions for customers.
