This paper proposes a common ontology for ratings, i.e. for quantitative user feedback data. Such a framework allows for semantic interoperability of data that adheres to it, which in turn enables the re-use, by making it independent from the original system. In contrast to prior attempts to establish an unambiguous vocabulary, this approach introd...
Article
This article presents results from a survey of web-based idea portals. We focus on such portals that allow users to publicly utter and discuss new ideas or provide solutions to previously announced problems. We note that the number of such portals has been continuously growing ever since the late nineties and are concerned with the question of how...
Conference Paper
The paper presents a new kind of idea search engine that allows analysing user ideas across multiple web-based innovation communities. Today, lots of online communities co-exist where users suggest and discuss ideas and problems. However, the diversity of such idea networks and the high launch rate of new platforms make it hard to keep track of the...
Chapter
Exchanging and analyzing ideas across different software tools and repositories is needed to implement the concepts of open innovation and holistic innovation management. However, a precise and formal definition for the concept of an idea is hard to obtain. In this paper, the authors introduce an ontology to represent ideas. This ontology provides...

The TEXO project, one of the six application scenarios of the THESEUS research program, aims at developing an infrastructure for the Internet of Services, which builds upon three basic paradigms i) Service Oriented Architectures (SOA), ii) Semantic Web, and iii) Web 2.0. We suggest that software tools that support the service innovation method shou...
Conference Paper
This paper presents ongoing research on an approach to integrate arbitrary online idea platforms that allow users to publicly utter and discuss new ideas or provide solutions to previously announced problems. We discuss the need for integrating such platforms in order to support use cases such as finding the best-suited portal to search for a solut...
