Abstract

This work introduces the real options analysis framework which mainly differs from traditional investment decision support approaches (like NPV or decision tree analysis) by the treatment of (new) information which can appear during the course of a project. ICT investments are a natural candidate to be analyzed by the ROA approach and there is already a wide range of literature dealing with the application of ROA on various investment projects in the ICT sector. Although there is only a small selection of papers about the impact of monetary policy on the ROA results it can be seen that its impact is substantial although not always intuitive. To add to this stream of research in this work a general ROA model is introduced and exemplarily run for several configurations. Also here the substantial impact of monetary policy on investment decisions can be seen.
