What Theories are Dealing with Information Technology?

I would like to see technology theories, models and methods. These may be helpful in all areas of Management.

Information Technology Discipline

We currently have no intention to add a seperate technology discipline, although there are quite a number of technology related subjects covered. (Most of them are in the strategy discipline).
See for example:
- Enterprise Architecture
- Strategic Grid for IT
- Strategic Alignment
- Strategic Thrusts
- TDC Matrix
- Impact/Value framework
- Twelve Principles of the Network Economy
- Bricks and Clicks
- Disruptive Innovation.

Information versus Digitats

As James Gleick argues in his book 'The Information - A History, a Theory, a Flood'', one must consistently & consequently keep apart
  • an original information about an object, a product copy, an event, a topic...
  • representations of an original information in various formats, e.g. writing, word-wrapping, figures, drawing, written text message or spoken word message..
  • digitised versions of such formatted information representations (= digitats), e.g. in the form of computer files or database rows that are generated and/or handled by means of software-based electronical digitisation systems, a.k.a. computer systems/IT systems
