The Information Panopticon in the Big Data Era

Martin Berner, Enrico Graupner, Alexander Maedche

Journal Title:Journal of Organization Design

Taking advantage of big data opportunities is challenging for traditional organizations. In this article, we take a panoptic view of big data obtaining information from more sources and making it visible to all organizational levels. We suggest that big data requires the transformation from command and control hierarchies to post-bureaucratic organizational structures wherein employees at all levels can be empowered while simultaneously being controlled. We derive propositions that show how to best exploit big data technologies in organizations.
