Abstract

Little is known about the business value that mobile applications (apps) can create, and how start-ups can leverage this value. We present a multiple-case study to both explain the process of app-enabled value creation and the type of value outcomes associated with the use of apps for business purposes. The study develops an App-enabled Business Innovation Cycle model that includes 1) twelve routines matched to four dynamic capabilities for creating business value using apps, 2) an explanation of the interactions between these capabilities, and 3) eleven types of app-enabled business value. Based on the developed model we give directions for future research and practice.
