dc.description.abstract <p>This study conducted a conceptual replication on <a href="http://aisel.aisnet.org/misq/vol38/iss1/16/">Chae et al. (2014)</a> by utilizing multiple comparison groups of IT leading firms. Empirical testing for the positive association between information technology (IT) capability and firm performance has been a celebrated debate in IS research due to mixed findings; <a href="http://aisel.aisnet.org/misq/vol24/iss1/7/">Bharadwaj (2000)</a> and <a href="http://aisel.aisnet.org/misq/vol27/iss1/6/">Santhanam and Hartono (2003)</a> confirmed the positive impact of IT capability on firm performance, but Chae et al. (2014) suggested no relationship between the IT capability and performance. Understanding what produces contradictory results is a timely and critical issue because a large body of the business value of IS research has employed IT capability as a key construct. Whereas Chae et al. (2014) investigated the link between IT capability and firm performance by comparing the performance of an IT leader and that of a single matched group from 2001-2004, this study examined the relationship by building multiple comparison groups, which include all firms in the same industry. As a result, contrary to findings by Chae et al. (2014), this research indicated that IT capability has a significant impact on a firm’s financial performance.</p>
