Abstract

In cities, a majority of the world’s GDP and global greenhouse gas emissions are generated. Sustainability has to a great extent, become a priority for the United Nations, climaxing in the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, including a goal for sustainable cities. Cities are interesting ecosystems that deal with all types of sustainability by adopting different technologies to transform themselves while making environmental, social, and/or economical changes. With the help of technology, a city has the ability to realize effective business decisions and develop in newer and better ways. In this study, we set out to investigate the influencers of the role of information systems in SSCs by developing an initial theoretical framework based on Technological-Organizational-Environmental (TOE) framework and Functional Affordances and develop this through the analysis of 141 Information Systems (IS) solutions and four interviews. We extend the initial framework with additional attributes resulting from the study and propose a revised framework.
