Enterprise software systems are company-wide suites of business software devoted to particular process integration across the value chain and are expected to increase firm performance in many aspects. Engelstätter shows that firms adopting enterprise systems realize increases in innovation performance regarding process, product and service innovations. Moreover, enterprise software systems are related to increases in labor productivity. The thesis also confirms persistence in ICT innovations, i.e. prior success in ICT innovations leads to new ICT innovations. Moving on to entertainment software the thesis explores whether video game play is associated with a change in crime rates. In detail, an increase in non-violent video game play leads to a decrease in overall crime as well as violent crime in particular. Violent video games show no effect on crime rates at all.
