Hello! I'm Adebowale
I am a software engineer and IS researcher.
Over the last decade, my teams have successfully automated more than 100 business processes across 4 Nigerian banks; resulting in verifiable high-cost savings, improved customer satisfaction, and achievement of other strategic business goals.
As a researcher, my research interests include digital platforms, ICT for development (ICT4D), and business IS.
In my recent research titled "Enhancing small businesses through mobile apps: A case study from Lagos, Nigeria", We investigated how small and medium-scale enterprises (SMEs) use mobile apps in Lagos, Nigeria. The results show the extent to which mobile apps enable and drive the dynamic capabilities of SMEs, and the untapped potential of mobile apps (as the digital platform) in Lagos. Dynamic capabilities are the abilities to identify and respond to opportunity. The study contributes to the area of Information systems by revealing the application of the dynamic capabilities framework to SMEs in contrast to the usual practice of researching dynamic capabilities within large organizations.
