    Symbolic Action Research in Information Systems: Introduction to the Special Issue2014In: Management Information Systems Quarterly, ISSN 0276-7783, E-ISSN 2162-9730, Vol. 38, no 4, p. 1187-1200Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This special issue introduction explores the need to study information systems as symbolic action systems, defines broadly the research domain and related assumptions, notes the origins of this perspective, articulates its key lines of study, and discusses the state of the field in light of published research. The essay also positions the three papers of the special issue in the broader Information Systems (IS) discourse and notes their specific contribution in bridging so far unconnected streams of research and expanding research methods amenable to symbolic action research. This introductory essay furthermore observes some unique challenges in pulling together the special issue that invited the editors to combat against the tendency to approach communicative processes associated with information systems as primarily psychological processes. In closing we note several lines of inquiry that can strengthen future studies of symbolic action including better design theories, more flexible and open use of methods, and attentive use of rich traditions that inform symbolic action research in IS.

    Green IT & Green Software - Time and Energy Savings Using Existing Tools2009In: Environmental Informatics and Industrial Environmental Protection: Concepts, Methods and Tools (Part 1) / [ed] Volker Wohlgemuth, Bernd Page, Kristina Voigt, Shaker Verlag, 2009, p. 57-66Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Green IT is steadily gaining ground among companies and organizations worldwide but the understanding of its actual significance is often indistinct. The purpose of this paper is to investigate Green Software and to summarize different points of view on Green IT and clarify some actions to be taken towards using computers more wisely. Special attention will be paid to Green Software and exploring what factors could make software being used and developed with the environmental impact in mind. A descriptive research method based on available literature has been used. Finally a test was set up to control if the amount of data sent over the Internet could be lowered during navigation by changing a server setting. The intention was to prove that Green Software can be simple use of tools we have at hand, just adding a small amount of knowledge. The result showed that there are savings to gain with no effect on overall performance. To conclude, a holistic approach towards Green IT and all it’s including parts is necessary, together with appropriate ways of measuring progress towards improvement.

    Detaljhandelns förberedelser inför GDPR: En fallstudie om vilka förändringar företagen behöver utföra samt deras arbete kring GDPR2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det rådande EU-direktivet som behandlar dataskydd från år 1995 är idag inte lika aktuellt som när det infördes. Det är därför i hög tid att en uppdatering kommer. I maj 2018 införs den nya dataskyddsförordningen, GDPR, som är EU:s senaste förordning. Den kommer ersätta Sveriges personuppgiftslag, PuL, som idag styr över hur personuppgifter behandlas. GDPR kommer innebära strängare lagar kring informationshantering och fler rättigheter till privatpersoner. Ett exempel är att privatpersoner kommer kunna be om att få alla data kopplad till personen raderade. Många företag erbjuder medlemskap till privatpersoner och lagrar därför kunduppgifter digitalt, vilket betyder att de påverkas av GDPR i stor grad då de måste omforma sina IT-system för att leva upp till de nya kraven.

    Denna studie handlar om fyra företag och förändringarna de står inför samt hur de arbetar med de nya kraven som GDPR innebär för dem. En kravmodell skapas med en sammanställning av de nya kraven och resultatet visar sedan vilka företag som börjat arbeta med de kraven. Resultatet visar även hur långt de kommit i sitt arbete med dataskyddsförordningen och kan förhoppningsvis vägleda andra företag i hur de bör arbeta med dataskyddsförordningen samt vilka förändringar de bör genomföra för att leva upp till de nya kraven.

    Identifying Mobile Phone Usability Issues in Informal Swedish Language Learning:What users think about it?2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis studies the usability issues of the mobile phone in informal Swedish language learning. The concept of usability is defined by expanding the technical usability attributes of Jakob Nielsen with other recent attributes derived from considering the technical aspects of mobile learning (m-learning). Thus, the ultimate structure of the usability factors that are discussed in this study consists of: accessibility, easy-to-learn, technical design, efficiency and satisfaction. With the support of the relevant previous literature and interview, we research this topic by considering the mobile-assisted language learning (MALL), informal language-learning and usability elements, in order to explore and identify the usability of mobile phone. The goal of this study is to contribute to detailed understanding of mobile phone usage, further identify the usability issues of mobile phones by obtaining both critical and commendatory feedbacks and reflections from the users. For final results, through qualitative research approach, we offered several findings regarding the mobile phone usability with specified reasons.

    Hur hjälper AI den svenska vården?: Sjuksköterskors uppfattning av AI inom vården2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Artificiell intelligens sprider sig allt mer och mer inom olika arbetsområden. I denna studie har en kvalitativ fallstudie gjorts som behandlar hur sjuksköterskors uppfattning av framtida användandet av AI inom vården kan se ut. Genom att intervjua tre sjuksköterskor, en e-hälsostrateg och en projektledare inom området analyseras även detta empiriska material med hjälp av TAM för att slutligen ta reda på hur sjuksköterskors attityder kring att använda AI i framtiden ser ut. Resultatet av studien visar att sjuksköterskors uppfattning och acceptans av AI inom vården är delad i två områden där ena är icke-beslutsfattande AI och andra, beslutsfattande AI. Resultatet visar alltså hur sjuksköterskors attityd är positiv när det kommer till icke-beslutsfattande AI och mer negativ vid beslutsfattande AI. Detta då sjuksköterskorna anser att den mänskliga kontakten försvinner vid beslutsfattande AI. Det vill säga vid användning av AI-baserade system som behåller patientkontakt och kan besluta om vilken slags vård patienten behöver. Istället menar respondenterna att maskin och människa går bäst hand i hand.

    Nulägesanalys av informationssäkerheten gällande molntjänster vid svenska universitet2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Allt fler verksamheter väljer att flytta delar av eller hela sin lagring till en molntjänst, en tjänst som tillhandahålls av en extern leverantör över Internet. Det medför en mängd fördelar som bl.a. minskade kostnader och ökad flexibilitet för användarna, men det finns också risker kopplat till att använda molntjänster. I uppsatsen presenteras en rikstäckande nulägesanalys över informationssäkerhetsläget kring användandet av molnlagringstjänster vid Sveriges 14 universitet. Arbetet genomförs som en fallstudie och granskning av universitetens styrdokument samt intervjuer med personal vid några utvalda universitet ligger till grund för analysen.

    Beyond the hype: A study of non-user perspectives2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Today's rapid technological development in relation with social networks create efficient information flows in everyday life. It creates conditions for so-called "hypes" that are described as an exponentially growing trend of testing a new product. What factors lies behind a hype and how does it affect people that choose to refrain from new technology?

     

    The purpose of this paper is to study the so called non-users, with a case study that concerns the Pokémon GO game and its hype in the summer of 2016. This case study has the intention to highlight the positive and negative aspects of non-users and other thoughts about hype. The study also intends to investigate what the non-users can contribute in technological development and if it's possible to distinguish between users and non-users in today's society.

     

    The case study has been carried out on the basis of two group interviews; a group that abstained from playing and a group that played Pokémon GO during the hype. A number of issues are discussed and linked against a theoretical framework which also has been used in the analysis in this paper. Based on the results of the case study it appears that nostalgia was a major factor in the hype, many had prior knowledge of the concept and was triggered by it. Nostalgia was also a factor that lead people to refrain from the hype. The game did not meet up to everyone’s expectations regarding the functionality which existed earlier in Pokémon but not now.  It also emerged that the social environment affects both users and non-users in several ways. The investigation of the case study showed that non-users often had to wait for players due to different reasons. This could be while on walks with the player or that users could completely block roads. To be able completely separating non-users and users is complex as the real world is used as the platform of the game. Both previous studies and this paper demonstrates how important it can be to understand non-users. They have the opportunity to present an overall perspective of a product that users might condone. In summary, the future will become more complex in the area, especially with new technologies that make the real world a game field.

    Patient Empowerment and User Experience in eHealth Services: A Design-Oriented Study of eHealth Services in Uppsala County Council2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In November 2012 Uppsala County Council (UCC) introduced an eHealth service, ‘My Health Record’, that gives all inhabitants over age 18 in Uppsala County access to their health records online. However, this service has not been evaluated before this study. We conducted an interview study, based on User Experience (UX) and Patient empowerment, with users of ‘My Health Record’ to get their opinions, and to see if and how the service can be improved. Our findings shows that the users are positive to the service and the aspects that can be improved mostly concern information and communication. Based on these results, we propose design principles as well as concrete design proposals which can be useful for re-designing the service as well as inspiration for similar projects. Additionally, an interesting finding is that the interviewees had very few opinions and complains on the actual interface, which could mean that the content (the health record) is so interesting that the interface becomes almost “invisible”. A conclusion we make is that UX and Patient empowerment is a good fit for each other, and that UX has advantages over traditional usability in services like this.

    Användbarhetsproblem i open source-projekt2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Usability is more prominent now than ever as the competitiveness of software market grows.Mesmerizing functions is not enough if the user doesn’t understand the interface. Open sourcesoftware, software with open source code developed for free modification and redistribution, isgenerally not up to par when it comes to usability. This paper describes which usability factorsis characterizing for usability problems in open source projects and how they relate to theoverall usability. This case study includes the analysis of interviews with main developers anda usability evaluation, based on ten key factors of usability in open source, of two open sourceprojects. It also includes which previous general issues considering usability in open sourcethat’s still an issue. The result of the study shows that usability issues in open source projectsis characterized by usability knowledge, usability testing and the capability of a software toenable the user to learn how to use it. These factors are related to the usability of the projectbased on the developer’ way of working with usability, previous experiences with handlingusability and the amount of user feedback for the project. The previous general usability issuesis still a part of the open source community except for the developers’ ability to communicatewith the end users.

    Prioritering av icke-funktionella krav i praktiken: Ur ett agilt perspektiv2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Requirements management is an important part of the software development process. The success of a project may depend on how this is handled. Even though several research studies indicates that more attention should be paid on non-functional requirements, the primary focus in practical projects still regards identifying functional requirements. Especially the prioritization of the non-functional requirements has been proven to be of great importance for the success of a project.

    This report investigates basics in agile requirements management involving opinions from experts from a software development company. This is done with help of existing literature and interviews with key actors involved in prioritization at the company. I investigate prioritization of non-functional requirements and possibilities for agile project development. The results contribute to developing an overall understanding of the agile way of working.

    The methodology of this report follows a qualitative approach. It is based on secondary data from literature and documents, but also on data collected via interviews.

    The results are acknowledging earlier findings from the literature and illustrate with examples actual prioritization of non-functional requirements, and how and why prioritization is a complex activity at a company. However, according to one of the most important findings of this study, the strict use of prioritization techniques is not the most urgent necessity for the success of a project.

    Extreme Programming för två utvecklare: Problem vid implementering2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Många utvecklingsprojekt inom IT misslyckas med att leverera det som efterfrågas. För att lösa detta problem har ett antal utvecklingsmetoder skapats. En av dessa metoder är Extreme Programming. Extreme Programming består av tre delar: värderingar, principer samt praktiker. Syftet med denna studie är att studera vilka problem som kan uppstå när Extreme Programming tillämpas av ett arbetslag om två utvecklare. För att undersöka vilka problem som uppstår vid implementering av Extreme Programming för ett arbetslag om två utvecklare utvecklades en webbsida. Resultatet från denna studie visar att Extreme Programming går att implementera för ett arbetslag om två utvecklare, men med två problem. Det första problemet som uppstår är att utvecklarna som ingår i arbetslaget måste erhålla kompetens inom flera verksamhetsfält jämfört med situationen för ett större arbetslag. Det andra problemet är att få perspektiv existerar på hur problem ska lösas jämfört med hur det ser ut för ett större arbetslag.

    Blockchain consensus mechanisms: the case of natural disasters2018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Blockchain is described as a trustworthy distributed service for parties that do not fully trust each other. It enables business transactions to be handled without a third party or central governance. For this distributed and concurrent communication to work, a consensus mechanism needs to be implemented into the blockchain protocol. This mechanism will dictate how and when new blocks can be added and in some cases, by whom.

    The medical industry suffers from many informational inefficiencies. Data is scattered across many different databases and the lack of coordination often results in mishandling of the data. This is especially clear when a natural disaster hits and time is of the essence.

    The purpose of this thesis is to assess how much a blockchain solution and its consensus mechanism can resist unusual behavior before they behave erratically. This involves analyzing design parameters and translating parameters from a disaster into a simulation to run tests. Overall, this thesis will explore if blockchain is a compatible solution to the difficulties in natural disaster response. This was obtained by conducting a qualitative study and developing a prototype and simulating disaster parameters in the prototype blockchain network. A set of test cases was created.

    The results show that the resilience differs significantly depending on consensus mechanism. Key parameters include consensus finality, scalability, byzantine tolerance, performance and blockchain type. Blockchain is well suited to handle typical challenges in natural disaster response: it results in faster allocation of medical care and more accurate information collection, as well as in a system which allows seamlessly for the integration of external organizations in the blockchain network.

    Effekter för sjukvårdspersonal efter införandet av Min journal via nätet i Uppsala län: En interpretativ studie2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I takt med att fler e-hälsotjänster växer fram har man genom att göra journaler på nätet tillgängliga för patienter velat öka patientdelaktigheten i vården. E-hälsotjänsten Min journal via nätetplaneras att införas med tillgång för alla patienter i Sverige och Uppsala län har varit pilotlän - här blev det tillgängligt i november 2012. Innan införandet fanns både negativa och positiva förväntningar hos personal som arbetar i landstingets tjänst.

    Denna studie har syftat till att ta reda på vilka upplevda effekter på arbetsrutiner samt arbetsbelastning Min journal via nätet givit för sjukvårdspersonalen.

    Vi intervjuade fem sjuksköterskor och fem läkare under hösten 2015. Resultatet antyder på en förändring i hur sjuksköterskor och läkare dokumenterar, men ingen tydlig påverkan i patientkontakten eller arbetsbelastning har framkommit.

    Diabetessjuksköterskans syn på e-Hälsa och kroppsnära teknik: En studie i användbarhet och påverkan2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Introduktion. Större mängd tekniska lösningar tillkommer ständigt diabetessjuksköterskans arbetsplats. Deras arbetsroll har utvecklats genom tiden och får nu även en roll som teknisk förmedlare till patienten. Detta ställer högre krav på sjuksköterskan att ha tillräckligt med kunskap om diverse e-hälsosystem och kroppsnära tekniker med en utbildningsform som inte hänger med. Syfte. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur diabetessjuksköterskan påverkas av e-hälsosystem och kroppsnära teknik och hur de uppfattar användbarheten i systemen. Metod. En empirisk studie utfördes och sex diabetessjuksköterskor intervjuades på ett semistrukturerat sätt. Resultat. Resultatet visar att diabetessjuksköterskan arbetsuppgifter påverkas av e-hälsosystem och de tekniska lösningar som har tillkommit deras yrke. Användbarheten i majoriteten av systemen som används är bristfällig och utbildning i diverse system är begränsad. Konklusion. Diabetessjuksköterskan måste börja få vara mer delaktig i utvecklingen och implementationen av diverse tekniker som ska vara en del av arbetsuppgifterna. Samt måste tillräckligt med utbildning införas för att de tekniska lösningarna ska ha en god påverkan på sjuksköterskans arbetsroll och bättre användbarhet kan uppnås.

    Rethinking ICT's contribution to sustainability and education2012In: New technologies, education for sustainable development and critical pedagogy / [ed] Vassilios Makrakis and Nelly Kostoulas-Makrakis, Rethymnon, Greece: ICTeESD, University of Crete , 2012, p. 232-235Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The open education system based on Information and communication technology (ICT) can provide great opportunities for people to learn regardless of resident area, language, gender, age and so on. Currently people use it actively and build up new social networks as learning communities or study groups on the Internet. Shared knowledge and the process of sharing knowledge established through online communication are considered as key elements in the context of strengthen the individual and the country. In other words, creating the open education platform and content plays a role of designing a culture and society. However, it is not easy to realize the ideal concept of “open education” because people have many differences in language, culture, political system, ideology, thought, deployment of ICT et cetera. In order to create the open education system, which has a high degree of usability and effectiveness, we need to closely examine social roles and difficulties of the ICT-based education system in designing sustainable societies. And also the ICT-based educational system is established through the continuous human-computer interaction. Therefore, all participants get involved with developing the open education and each of them assumes a responsibility for making the open educational contents more abundant.

    Social Media Supporting Democratic Dialogue2013In: Ambiguous Technologies: Philosophical Issues, Practical Solutions, Human Nature, Lisbon: Autónoma University , 2013, p. 36-43Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The term of “social media” appears in newspapers and magazines everyday and the huge number of people use social media actively in daily life. Nowadays, in the highly Information and Communication Technology (ICT) developed country Japan, Japanese people enroll in social media and evolve a new way of communicating with others based on the “virtual” social distance between them. Among social media, Twitter has been focusing on its strong power as the tool for political change recent years. While Twitter has of-expressed problems as well as the “traditional” social media, it is characterized by the limited number of characters, strong propagation and optional reciprocity. Those characteristics stimulate people’s communication online and bring about opportunities for social interaction and democratic dialogue. On the other hand, in the deluge of information, we need to nurture skills to utilize critical and rational way of thinking through dialogue not only between others also between themselves internally. This study explores characteristics of social media and differences between “traditional” social media and Twitter, and how the difference affects people’s information behavior in Japan.

    Robots as companions in feelings and discussions2017In: Retfærdighed – Justice, Robophilosophy / [ed] Martin Mose Bentzen, Copenhagen, 2017, p. 42-42Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Robots are used in emotional relationships. On the other hand, it is not very common to think that robots can be used as partners in a philosophical dialog. It would be challenging to find the conditions under which a robot can be one of the parts in an emotional relationship or in a Socratic dialog. Robots usable as emotional or philosophical companions need probably to function well at both dimensions, providing continuous and interchanging support for feelings and reasoning. Our aim here is not to investigate the technical possibilities for such a machine but the theoretical requirements and ethical conditions for its creation and use.

    Inte så dum som den ser ut: Artificiell intelligens och användarvänlighet i interaktiva system2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Artificiell intelligens och maskininlärning i interaktiva system används allt mer och av allt fler. Det innebär nya utmaningar för god interaktionsdesign och användarvänlighet. I denna studie har en flerfallsstudie gjorts av fyra olika typer av sådana system. Flerfallsstudien har gjorts medelst intervjuer och en observationsstudie utefter en frågeställning utformad för att ta reda på vad som påverkar användarvänligheten i intelligenta interaktiva system. Empirin har analyserats kvalitativt med hjälp av ramverken PACT (People, Activities, Contexts, Technologies) med stöd av Normans 7 Designprinciper. Resultaten av studien ger nya perspektiv på hur människor interagerar med intelligenta system och visar att AI kan ha många positiva effekter för användarvänligheten i interaktiva system men också att det i en del situationer kan innebära stora utmaningar för teknologi och samhälle att göra intelligenta system användarvänliga.

    Consumer behaviour in Apple's App Store2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Mobile applications stores such as Apple’s App Store and Google’s Android Market revolutionized the distribution of applications for mobile devices. However, with thousands of application submissions, limited testing resources and the lack of an effective filtering mechanism, application stores suffer from information overload and a risk of releasing poor quality applications that could create confusion to consumers and may seriously affect the App store markets. Thus concern has been raised whether applications have been developed according to the need and interest of consumers. Therefore, the purpose of this study was mainly to identify and get insight into the main factors that mobile application consumer takes into consideration when purchasing mobile applications from the desktop iTunes App Store and the mobile App Store on the iOS devices: iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

    In this study both qualitative and quantitative case study approach was used. Accordingly twelve participants were selected from Stockholm and Uppsala area and their behaviour in the Apple’s App Store from the desktop iTunes and the mobile App Store on iOS devices was observed and recorded. Additionally questionnaires were administered to all participants in order to gather the necessary information.

    Consumers on the App Store behave differently depending on the unit they are using. This is because applications on the App Store are presented differently in the desktop iTunes App Store and the mobile App Store on the iOS devices. The study shows that young consumers with lower income purchase apps more frequently than the consumers with higher income. It also shows that consumers often consider the description, the screenshots, and the ratings when they are interested in buying applications. Furthermore consumers take a look more on ratings in the list on the iPhone and iPad App Store because the ratings are not shown in the list on the iTunes App Store. Similarly consumers tend to read the customer reviews more on the iTunes and iPad App Store as the customer reviews on the iPhone App Store is displayed in another page. Consumers were found to be more attracted by visual elements that they are already familiarized with, apps with famous logos and known fonts and styles but also to coherent and descriptive app names and strong colors (i.e. red, green, yellow, black and blue, respectively). The majority of the participants found the iTunes App Store messy and cumbersome to use. They preferred using the iPad App Store because they found it to be a good mixture of both iTunes and iPhone App Store but also because it has more options to consider.

    Although consumers behave differently depending on the unit they are using, the visual element of the apps, prior knowledge of consumers about the name of the apps, ratings, easy accessibility of screenshots and customer reviews of the apps were found to be the main factors to be considered by consumers when they visit app stores for purchase. Thus application developers and digital magazine publishers should consider these consumer behaviours in order to influence more downloads and successfully sell apps on the app stores.

    Memoryscape: Designing with Senior Citizens as Memory Meditation2013In: Human Factors in Computing and Informatics, Berlin Heidelberg: Springer, 2013, p. 601-608Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Supporting senior citizens with tools to recollect past experiences about everyday life is gaining ground within HCI research. In this paper, we focus on how seniors reminiscing can be a resource for designers to uncover the situated aspects. In particular, we argue that an analytical focus on seniors’ memories is a fruitful stance for tracing how design practice situates issues of senior wellbeing. We employ the case of designing with senior citizens to design ICT for supporting adherence to physical therapy at home and discuss two retrospective examples. These examples highlight how seniors’ physical wellbeing was situated in, memories of a musically rich and mobile life, and memories of youthful male body. Through retrospection, we offer the preliminary notion of memoryscape as a conceptual term for orienting how a design process can mediate seniors’ memories as a way of accounting for situated elderliness in design.

    Business Intelligence in Uppsala Univeristy - Do academic institutions practice what they preach?2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Business Intelligence (BI) is not a new concept. However, it is still complicated to work with it due to the different views and ways of implementation. This study has adopted an organisational oriented approach of BI: getting the right information, to the right people, at the right time. It was found in this study that poorly implemented BI features and inadequate information infrastructure may lead to workarounds in order to compensate for missing or lacking features and systems.

    This case study has been conducted at the faculty of Social Sciences of Uppsala University (UU) where a set of interviews were conducted to individuals on one of the key positions at the university; the Director of Studies (DoS). The aim was to map out the key processes and head activities of the DoS’s and evaluate them through the BI view of this thesis. Being the conclusion a concrete mapping of the DoS head activities as well as BI assessment of the current situation of the studied departments. Some improvements have been proposed in order to remedy the lacking of valuable and critical features and systems. However, it was found that the current system infrastructure and problem area is too immature in order to implement any form of integration. Several studies on key positions and influential systems need to be conducted in order to exhaustively map out and discover the problem area.

    En studie om kunskapsöverföring vid öppen innovation genom crowdsourcing2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Organizations that want to maintain a good innovation capability can seek knowledge both within and outside its boundaries. Opening up innovation processes, through so-called open innovation, allows organizations to combine internal and external knowledge sources in order to include previously excluded perspectives to the innovation process. This study examines how knowledge is created and transferred when conducting open innovation through crowdsourcing. It is done based on Nonaka’s (1991; 1994) theory of how knowledge is created through conversion processes, where implicit knowledge can be converted into explicit knowledge and vice versa. How the crowdsourcing process can generate knowledge transfer is analyzed with the support of Nonaka’s theory and a number of empirically based illustrations. The gathered empirics primarily consist of interviews conducted at companies working with different crowdsourcing platforms. The paper clarifies how the crowdsourcing process gives support for knowledge transfer according to Nonaka’s conversion processes, and that additional knowledge transfer is made possible through the collaborative nature of crowdsourcing. The analysis also shows that extensive planning for how crowdsourcing initiatives should be handled is required in order for them to strengthen the organization’s innovation capability.

    The Contribution of Collaborative Tools and Technologies in Facilitating Tacit Healthcare Knowledge Sharing amongst Clinicians: In the Case of Akadamiska Hospital, Uppsala, Sweden2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Healthcare is a knowledge-intensive field. A significant quantum of extremely vital and viable healthcare knowledge exists in a tacit form, yet due to various operational and technical reasons such healthcare knowledge is not entirely utilized and put into professional practice. The strong increase in expert work and knowledge-intensive fields make examining the topic timely and hypothetically interesting.The most significant contribution of this study is the increase in understanding, as well as, tacit healthcare knowledge sharing amongst physicians and clinicians with the type of collaborative tools and technologies they have at their disposal. Collaborative tools and technologies help employees of an organization work closely with their colleagues, partner organization and other volunteers as tacit healthcare knowledge sharing among clinicians such as sharing of best practices, tips and tricks, inter professional collaborative networking, clinical experiences and skills are known to have a significant impact on the quality of medical diagnosis and decisions.This paper posits that collaboration tools and technologies can provide new opportunities for tacit healthcare knowledge sharing amongst health-experts, and demonstrates this by presenting findings from a review of relevant literature and a survey conducted with Medical Doctors who have moderate to high interaction with collaborative tools and technologies in the healthcare industry. Semi-structure interviews were conducted with health-experts (Medical Doctors and clinicians) of Akademiska Hospital, Uppsala, Sweden. Final thematic analysis unveiled six themes as potential contributors of collaborative tools and technologies in facilitating tacit healthcare knowledge sharing among clinicians. The newly developed themes are described and interpreted briefly; extensive literature review has been carried out to relate the emerged themes with the literatures and part of interview participant responses are supported as well. Finally this research suggests further empirical studies shall be conducted to acknowledge this study.

    Facebook usage in a local government: A content analysis of page owner posts and user posts2016In: Transforming Government: People, Process and Policy, ISSN 1750-6166, E-ISSN 1750-6174, Vol. 10, no 4, p. 548-567Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose To fully grasp the potential of using social media, one must know what governments and citizens are communicating in these media. Despite much statistics published, there is a dearth of research analyzing information content in detail. The purpose of this paper is to identify the kind of information exchange that occurs between a local government and its constituent citizens using social media. Design/methodology/approach This paper presents a qualitative single case study of the Facebook presence of the municipality and city of Karlstad, Sweden, one of the most prominent local governments on Facebook in the country. Facebook page data were collected between May 2015 and July 2015. A content analysis was performed on the data to explore new and existing categories that drive the analysis. Findings The paper identifies 11 content categories for municipality posts and 13 content categories for user posts (citizen or organization). The frequency for each content category reveals that the page owner is first of all using its Facebook page to promote different happenings in the municipality while the page user is asking questions to the municipality or other users. Research limitations/implications The study is limited to one municipality, but achieves analytical generalizability in its findings. In other words, the categories and mode of communication are a finding in and of itself that in future research may be validated in terms of commonality on a national scale. Practical implications Management concerns about opening up a municipality Facebook page for user posting may be exaggerated: positive posts are as common as complaints. If an organization wants to use the Facebook page for increased user participation and collaboration, it seems that users, both citizens and organizations, welcome such opportunities. However, such posts are not likely to receive many comments or shares from other users. Originality/value The paper is one of the first that uses content analysis to categorize both page owner posts and user posts on a local government Facebook page. The content categories identified in the paper provide novel and detailed insights on what types of information exchange occur on social media between a local government and citizens but also highlight the need to distinguish organizations from citizens among the visitors to the government Facebook page. Different types of user will post different types of content. The identified content categories can serve as a basis for future empirical research within e-government research.

    ANT-Maps: Visualising Perspectives of Business and Information Systems2013In: ICIS 2013 Proceedings, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the IS-literature, graphical representations often accompany Actor Network Theory (ANT) analyses of IS-initiatives, serving as tools for improving visibility of the case and interest and power of actors. Building on a comprehensive literature survey, we identify a gap in existing visualisation approaches, as these mainly focus on offering visual support of the case. We present a visualisation approach and a generic, precise and well defined notation that is directly mapped to key concepts of ANT, highlighting the process of translating actors to commit to the implementation initiative. The approach is illustrated by an actor-network analysis of a particular IS-initiative in a Swedish media house.

    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates to what extent holistic sustainability values persist when a sustainability innovation initiative is transformed to standard mode of operation in a Swedish municipality through the lens of actor-network theory. The focus is on the effect of change in sustainability routines, inscribed in IT systems, when governance shifts from a dedicated initiative management to regular management. This longitudinal study shows that information systems can play a central role to enrol stakeholders in sustainable practices, but that sustainability outcomes are closely related to the view of sustainability inscribed in routines and supportive IT systems.

    A comprehensive summary and categorization of physical quantity libraries2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In scientific applications, physical quantities and units of measurement are used regularly. If the inherent incompatibility between these different units is not handled properly it can lead to major, and sometimes catastrophic, problems. Although the risk of a miscalculation is high and the cost equally so, almost no programming languages has support for physical quantities. Instead developers often rely on external libraries to help them spot these mistakes or prevent them all together.

    There are several hundred of these types of libraries, spread across multiple sites and with no simple way to get an overview. No one has summarized what has and has not been achieved so far in the area leading to many developers trying to ‘reinvent the wheel’ instead of building on what has already been done. This shows a clear need for this type of research.

    Employing a systematic approach to look through and analyze all available physical quantity libraries, the search results were condensed into 82 libraries which are presented in this thesis. These are the most comprehensive and well-developed, open-source libraries, chosen from approximately 3700 search results across seven repository hosting sites. In this group, 30 different programming languages are represented. The goal is for the results of this thesis to contribute to a shared foundation on which to build future libraries as well as provide an easy way of spreading knowledge about which libraries exist in the area, thus making it easier for more people to use them.

    The Backup-Plan: En kvantitativ studie om säkerhetskopiering bland studenter på Uppsala universitet2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Few people backup their files frequently enough, even though they risk losing important files. Why is this? This paper has through a quantitative survey attempted to elucidate which factors have the biggest impact on this behavior and if there is a correlation between these. The data was collected using a questionnaire which got over 300 answers from students at Uppsala University. The results were analyzed using the theoretical framework “Protection Motivation Theory” (PMT) and was then compared to similar research.

    The results show that laziness and forgetfulness are the two biggest factors that the respondents themselves say have the biggest impact on their behavior. In addition to this the kind of program the student is attending also has an effect. The results show that the assessed probability of losing data and the severity of the problem of losing data have a positive correlation with how often backup is done, where assessed problem has the biggest impact. These results differ from what some of the earlier research has shown, but is in line with what PMT says about this behavior.

    Alot of money is invested in information systems today. The goal with these investments is usually to make business critical process mer efficient to save money. But the management of internal documents, which can be viewed as the organisations memory with instructions regarding how to do certain tasks or how employees should handle difficult situations is something that hasent recieved enough attention in relation to its value. This studie has examined document management in a municipal organisation to see how it works and how it can be improved. During the studie we have seen that there is room for improvement of document management which can save time and thereby money for organisations today.

    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie kartlägger vilka faktorer som främst påverkar organisationers inställning till molntjänster utifrån ett informationssäkerhetsperspektiv. Intervjuer och dokumentstudier har genomförts för att få reda på fem olika organisationers åsikter i ämnet. Dessa åsikter har sedan analyserats och jämförts med varandra samt med redan befintliga teorier inom ämnet. Studien visar att det framförallt är tre aspekter som påverkar hur organisationer ser på informationssäkerhet i molntjänster: tillit till leverantören, kontroll över sin egen data samt rådande lagstiftning.

    Programspråk specificerade av nyttjare: en pilotstudie om tidsåtgång vid uppmärkning av dokument2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    IT projects often fail because they are late and more expensive than planned, and in many cases it is the time factor that is limiting for projects. There exist many different programming languages and the need to share structures between them. Applications within the same system often uses different terminology and the need for conversions occurs. Standardized languages such as XML exist but when organizations choose to create their own syntax for formatting publications instead a resistance can be distinguished. The paper can be used as basis for further research in the area of programming languages. This research focuses on comparing if the choice of syntax affects expenditure of time when marking document. The selected research strategy is experiment. A pilot study has been done and based on the results of the study a hypothesis testing (t-test) was made. The analysis of the results indicated that the use of optional syntax implied that less time was spent at marking document than the use of XML. The conclusion from this was that this area should be further explored and that the study should be done on a larger scale.
