1) Can decision support improve surveillance and increase privacy?

Power & Heavin (2018) argue "Digital disruption is accelerating. Implementing a successful digital transformation strategy requires that senior managers make trade-off decisions to reinvent a business.

Creating a data-centric culture and rewarding data-based decision making leads to successful digital transformation."
