The rise of digital-themed research in information systems (IS) and other disciplines is signaling the dawn of a new era and an opportunity for IS to position itself as a reference discipline. Emerging digital-themed studies have argued that the logic of theorizing about IT does not necessarily translate to the digital – yet we have limited theoretical explanations and toolkits for this. We propose a theory of digital practices to explain the unit of “doing”, that is, what transpires in attaining a digital-themed objective. We present digital practices as a conceptual bridge that allows for interdisciplinary conversation around objective-driven digital-themed research such as digital – transformation, entrepreneurship, innovation, among others.
