"While VWs open new and exciting possibilities for business enterprises, they remain largely uncharted territory. Are VWs just another medium? How should companies integrate VW technology into their prior and current investments in a variety of communication technologies (e.g., wikis, unified messaging, audio/video/web-conferencing, telepresence systems etc.)? There is a need for research that examines the value and fit of VWs for business enterprise application. This is the major motivation underlying this STF in the Decision Sciences journal."
