We live in a world that is changing constantly due to the pervasive impact of technologies, such as mobile smart phones, social media, wireless sensor networks, etc. Many of these technologies did not exist 5 years ago and our lives, society, business and, from an academic perspective the Information Systems(IS) research agendas are being shaped by...

Recent studies have identified a link between Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and engagement in entrepreneurial behaviour (Verheul et al. 2015). That ADHD as a novelty seeking, hyperactive, and disinhibiting neurobiological condition may complement the novel and stimulating nature of entrepreneurial action has received much attentio...

Intuition, which ranges in style from affective to inferential to holistic (Pretz et al. 2014) can play a central role in decision-making, as decision makers must often balance intuition with rational analytical thinking. This paper explores the influence of intuition based decision style diversity on both the emergence of transactive memory system...
Conference Paper

Customer-centric design is critical to the success of delivering Predictive Analytics (PA) as a Self-Service Technology (SST), yet efforts to date have focused upon the related technical challenges. This research turns to the multidisciplinary field of Service Design to address this where its centerpiece Service Blueprint (SB) method has the potent...
Article
Developing business vision should not be underestimated. Predictive analytics provides organisations with new opportunities to ‘know what they know’, but also predict future behaviours, leveraging these better insights to increase the value of their business. The power of propensity scoring based on historical data delivered as a service via cloud...
Article
Effective software use is mediated by the ability of users to perceive and interact with elements presented through the user interface. As user interfaces are frequently visual, it is unsurprising that prior research has often focused on optimizing visual interfaces for user processing. However, this body of research is limited by the fact that it...
Conference Paper
Abstract. Software as a service, cloud computing and predictive analytics are examples of new phenomena that can have a profound impact on the pervasiveness and accessibility of organizational decision making. The power of propensity scoring based on historic data delivered as a service via cloud computing heralds the availability of capabilities t...

Article
This panel primarily focusses on entrepreneurship in the context of IS, including the teaching and researching of entrepreneurship and the implications for Information Systems. The Information Systems literature has acknowledged the role of technologically led innovation, with particular emphasis on diffusion of innovation and technology adoption....
Conference Paper
Cloud computing applications and services go hand in hand, yet there is no clear mechanism for ensuring that the cloud applications are designed from a customer’s perspective. Likewise services can require adaptation for multiple customers of stakeholders, which require differing user experience outcomes. This paper describes the initial design and...

ABSTRACT: This case study explores the application of the Lead-user method in the development of medical applications based on Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology by three independent research teams. The study also reflects on the role of student teams as Innovation Intermediaries (Howells, 2006; O’Flaherty, et al. 2013) and as a resource for...

Cloud computing applications and services go hand in hand, yet there is no clear mechanism for ensuring that the cloud applications are designed from a customer's perspective. This paper describes the initial design and development of a predictive analytics cloud service application, which uses historic customer data to predict the existing custome...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper presents a process model for Information Systems (IS) scholars conducting Design Science Research (DSR). The paper argues that the impact of DSR on the IS discipline has been inhibited by perceived limitations in the rigor of DSR studies, and that such perceptions are often due to a lack of procedural transparency surrounding the develop...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The importance of innovation to economies across the world has been widely documented and this has been particularly true in Irish terms in the development of a knowledge-based economy (SSTI, 2006). One of the ways of facilitating an innovation culture is through third level education and students taking innovation and entrepreneurship programmes o...
Conference Paper
This paper presents an analysis of Human-Centred Design (HCD), using a metatriangulation of scientific literature. This metatriangulation comprises a systematic overview of recent HCD research, in which literature is categorised and analysed using both engineering lens and cognitive science paradigmatic lenses. The study reveals that the most popul...
Article
To examine the extent of EEG monitoring in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs), and to survey the level of experience and training of those using it. A web-based survey, the link to which was circulated via e-mail, personal contact, specialist societies and professional groups. Survey data were exported to SPSS for analysis. In total 210 surveys...
Article
This case study explores the application of the Lead-user method in the development of medical applications based on Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology by three independent research teams. This exercise produced surprising results, with the emergence of diverse WSN technology product concepts applied to Geriatric Falls Detection & Analysis, S...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This study explores intranets as information infrastructure and considers critically the stakeholders, who are respo nsible for updating the intranet, and the associated organisational impact of th eir activity , in three interpretive case studies. Previous research indicates that web -based information resources are in fact an information infrastr...
Conference Paper
It widely cited that 80% of government data is spatial in nature and the accessibility of this data is a critical aspect of e-Government. Many countries are developing standardised infrastructures, which will allow sharing and reuse of spatial data. This paper presents the findings of a national level case study of the Spatial Data Infrastructure i...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper focuses on the deployment of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI) within local government in Thai Provinces. GIS has been used extensively within local government and many countries have undertaken SDI initiatives, but these tend to focus at the national level, failing to address the local deploym...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Abstract In the past two decades, the IS research community underwent an intensive debate and fought hard to legitimise interpretive and qualitative research paradigms. Now that the war,is over it is ironic that despite a knowledge ,of technology the IS literature has been slow to embrace ,software in order to support qualitative data analysis. In...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Abstract This study explores intranets as information infrastructure and this conceptualization is supported by evidence from three interpretive case studies. If an intranet is considered as an infrastructure then it does not occur ‘de-nouvo’, it must wrestle with an ‘installed-base’ and over time extends as a new infrastructure. If this is the cas...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The nature of higher-level interactions in facilitating strategic alignment has received much attention in the past decade. The study sets out to explore the nature of the interactions between business and IT units through the investigation of an intermediary role called a liaison role. This was achieved by understanding the organisational context,...

Automation has revolutionised industry and initiated profound economic change. In the past two decades, manufacturing productivity has seen substantial improvements, yet office productivity has remained practically unaffected. Workflow automation systems, a new class of system which focus on automating document flows, promises to redress this imbal...

The design process for a breakwater is unlike that of almost all other civil engineering structures. Whereas such major structures as bridges and skyscrapers lend themselves easily to precise mathematical analysis the same cannot be applied to breakwaters. What does exist is a multitude of empirical formulae and heuristic methods on which the engin...
