This paper argues for the notion of 'infomateriality' as an orientation for IS research and as an alternative to and in distinction from sociomateriality. It sees Orlikowski’s relatively recent exposition of sociomateriality as developing out of her earlier work, which was heavily influenced by Giddens’ structuration theory. Tracing the key philosophical tradition of process studies, through Bergson and Whitehead, and how they can be used and combined in response to Orlikowski’s work, it presents its critique of sociomateriality as a springboard and justification for the idea of infomateriality.This paper argues for the notion of 'infomateriality' as an orientation for IS research and as an alternative to and in distinction from sociomateriality.
