The idea of winning and losing in IT raises questions about what these terms really mean for the “real world.” Simple metrics such as market capitalization, patents granted, profit generated, level of market penetration, safety, and liability are increasingly accompanied by the more complicated issues of environmental impact, diversity, civil rights, and social justice. Engineers are increasingly called upon to consider such factors and effects in their work. This special issue explores the kinds of issues that arise when considering what it means to win or lose in IT.
Special issues and sections, Information technology, Investment, Market opportunities, Environmental factors, Business, Risk management
