    The recent economic growth in Asia Pacific is noteworthy. This economic prosperity and growth is primarily driven by technological innovation brought about by worlds leading Pacific-based technology and telecommunication companies such as Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo, to name a few. Furthermore, Asia Pacific-based e-Commerce giants and the Fintech startups (such as Alibaba, Tencent, Line, and Kakao) equally contribute to the economic prosperity. With this region being home to more than 60% of the world population and contributing more than 60 percent of the global growth (IMF, 2018), the rise of technology companies and technology innovation in this region come with several social, technological, business, and political implications.

     

    On one hand, technology innovation in the region has enabled new business opportunities to flourish. For example, it facilitated the formation of new startup companies that provide various types of innovative services, such as, Go-Jek in Indonesia provides a motorcycle taxi service that includes picking-up school children, sending laundries, and delivering food. Technology innovation in the region has also facilitated market penetration to rural areas thus generating new business avenues for rural residents. Taobao villages, another good example, allows communities of rural food producers to conveniently sell their products. Other technology innovations, such as mobile payments, is transforming China into a cashless society. AI-enabled robots are now deployed in restaurants to prepare meals and serve customers; robot systems are used in logistics companies to deliver packages. On the other hand, while the use of the exiting new technology provides convenience and efficiency to our lives, it also comes with potential problems, which includes adoption barriers and acceptance, privacy and legal issues, and the adverse impacts on traditional businesses and societies. These issues need careful and systematic investigation and analysis to provide academics, practitioners, and government agencies evidence-based information about the potential benefits and risks of these technological innovations in the region.

     

    This special issue aims to investigate IT (information technology) applications and innovation in the Asia Pacific region using both qualitative and quantitative methodology. We welcome papers that address, but are not limited to, the following issues and topics.

     

     

    Examples of topics of interest include:

    • New IT-led business transformation in the region
    • New artificial intelligence applications in the region
    • Big data and its applications as well as Big Data-driven services in the region
    • Internet of things and cloud computing applications in the region 
    • New theory and perspective for the adoption and diffusion of IT applications in the region
    • Legal and political issues of IT applications in the region
