Abstract

The firm’s values of information technology (IT) and electronic commerce (EC) have been discussed for years, yet virtually all previous studies have evaluated the values of IT and EC independently, instead of jointly; and ignored their impacts on the firm’s performance and inputs relations. This pioneering firm-level study bridges the gap by empirically investigating the complex relationships among IT and EC values, relations of inputs, and US firms’ performance at the firm, industry, and sector levels, based on a panel dataset. We undertake a detailed analysis of the empirical results and also seek to answer five major research questions.<br>
