    Abstract [sv]

    I dagens allt mer hektiska samhälle blir det allt vanligare att mer och mer arbete sker utanför kontorets väggar, allt från kundmöten till e-postkorrespondens som måste passas in i den hektiska vardagen. Om då hantering av information är begränsad till en kontorsmiljö kan det leda till att information kopplad till uppgifter som telefonsamtal eller kundmöten går förlorad. Detta projekt är en studie av mobilt arbete inom ett fält där denna problematik har kunnat observeras, ett fält med mycket stor bredd och variation där kontexten spelar en enormt stor roll. Hur påverkas då mobilt arbete av kontexten där det utförs? Hur kan man genom att ta hänsyn till detta åstadkomma en bättre design av de tekniska produkter som stödjer den mobila arbetaren?

    Dessa frågor ligger till grund för en litteraturstudie där områden som mobilt arbete, användarnytta och kontext definieras för att skapa en bättre förståelse för frågan. Även andra begrepp som användbarhet och systemacceptans undersöks då dessa begrepp är starkt kopplade till de ursprungliga begreppen. Utifrån denna teori skapas en bild av det fält som undersöks, vilket stöds av bland annat kontextuella intervjuer och observationer. Detta avses ligga till grund för en kravspecifikation på aktiviteter som idag utförs manuellt eller inte alls, vari en mobil applikation kan ligga till stöd för användaren. Kombinerat med teorin leder denna vidare till skapandet av en prototyp av en mobil applikation som stödjer användaren i sitt arbete och är väl anpassad efter sin tänkta kontext.

    Dispensed drugs and multiple medications in the Swedish population: an individual-based register study2009In: BMC Clinical Pharmacology, ISSN 1472-6904, Vol. 9, no May, p. Article number: 11-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND

    Multiple medications is a well-known potential risk factor in terms of patient's health. The aim of the present study was to estimate the prevalence of dispensed drugs and multiple medications in an entire national population, by using individual based data on dispensed drugs.

    METHODS

    Analyses of all dispensed out-patient prescriptions in 2006 from the Swedish prescribed drug register. As a cut-off for multiple medications, we applied five or more different drugs dispensed (DP >or= 5) at Swedish pharmacies for a single individual during a 3-month, a 6-month, and a 12-month study period. For comparison, results were also calculated with certain drug groups excluded.

    RESULTS

    6.2 million individuals received at least one dispensed drug (DP >or= 1) during 12 months in 2006 corresponding to a prevalence of 67.4%; 75.6% for females and 59.3% for males. Individuals received on average 4.7 dispensed drugs per individual (median 3, Q1-Q3 2-6); females 5.0 (median 3, Q1-Q3 2-7), males 4.3 (median 3, Q1-Q3 1-6).The prevalence of multiple medications (DP >or= 5) was 24.4% for the entire population. The prevalence increased with age. For elderly 70-79, 80-89, and 90-years, the prevalence of DP >or= 5 was 62.4, 75.1, and 77.7% in the respective age groups. 82.8% of all individuals with DP >or= 1 and 64.9% of all individuals with DP >or= 5 were < 70 years. Multiple medications was more frequent for females (29.6%) than for males (19.2%). For individuals 10 to 39 years, DP >or= 5 was twice as common among females compared to males. Sex hormones and modulators of the genital system excluded, reduced the relative risk (RR) for females vs. males for DP >or= 5 from 1.5 to 1.4. The prevalence of DP >or= 1 increased from 45.1 to 56.2 and 67.4%, respectively, when the study period was 3, 6, and 12 respectively months and the corresponding prevalence of DP >or= 5 was 11.3, 17.2, and 24.4% respectively.

    CONCLUSION

    The prevalence of dispensed drugs and multiple medications were extensive in all age groups and were higher for females than for males. Multiple medications should be regarded as a risk in terms of potential drug-drug interactions and adverse drug reactions in all age groups.

    Using Student Response System in Higher education: teachers' perception of influential factors and challenges2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Information and communication technologies have changed the traditional concept of education and improved existing educational methods. Student Response System is a new teaching system that combines technology and education. Student Response System encourages immediate feedback on teaching content, which not only improves student engagement, learning, and satisfaction but also enhances their understanding of course materials. The purpose of this paper is to study the reasons and motivations that affecting the use of SRS also the challenges that are faced by teachers from technology faculty at Linnaeus University. In this study, a qualitative research method is used to conduct a semi-structured interview with eight teachers who have the experience of using the Student Response System and collect data as well. Data analysis and identification of three major themes based onresearch questions and related literature. According to the interview results, the reasons why teachers use such a system is that it can promote students' participation, learning and provide timely feedback, but they still face problems such as insufficient software functions, network instability, teaching time constraints. The study may provide suggestions for improving teaching methods and help other Swedish universities and departments to use SRS better.Also software designers can get some advice.

    Ett användbart IT-stöd för balanserat styrkort i ett vårdbolag - problem och möjligheter2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background:Balanced Scorecard is one of the most popular measurement frame-works for improving and managing organizations. Apart from the strategic economic goals there is a value in identify your intangible silent values – humane capital, costume relations, trademarks, inno-vation capital and corporate culture. There’s a wide range of soft-ware for BSC information systems today, but what are the factors that are vital for an information system för balanced scorecard to give organizations the entirety and flexibility they demand?

    Purpose:To identify factors that is needed in a useful information system for balanced scorecard considering desired conditions in a health care company

    Methodology: On the basis of the systems approach that assumes that the reality is arranged in such a way that the entirety differs from the sum of the parts, an explorative case study has been carried out by examining a present information system and by interviewing users.

    Conclusion:The most important functions in software for balanced scorecard should focus on legible strategies and connections in the organiza-tion, it should contain tools for communication, documentation of common approaches and goals and measurements and it should support development of scorecards. To be able to carry out an ac-tionable scorecard the software only is one factor of many. Other factors are of at least the same importance to create powerful score-cards.

    Processägares syn på relationen mellan masterdata och processer: Affärsprocesser och masterdata: Hur kunskap påverkar processägarens syn på de egna processerna2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Information in different formats flow within business processes. It can be verbal, written or previously documented information. It can also take the shape of databases. Regardless of the format the information has to be stored but at the same time readily available for those who must use it. When it comes to information in a process oriented organization the storage facility for the information must also allow for the usage and the flow of the information itself. This paper which is based on a study conducted at Tekniska verken in Linköping and at Alstom Power in Växjö, Sweden aims to investigate how a process owner’s view on the information flow can affect the sharing of master data in an organization. Open interviews were conducted both at Tekniska verken and Alstom since no research had previously been done on the specific view of the process owner. The interviews were not solely aimed at gathering empirical data but also to give an insight into the everyday routine of the companies. This principle forms the theoretical and practical base for this study.

    The study shows the way a process owner views the internal flow of information is completely dependent on how well the process owner understands the term “master data”. This study also shows proof of asymmetrical information in the sense of one person having a greater understanding of master data than another. Thus, the person with the greater understanding can use this to his or her advantage.

    Spelifiera för att träna mera: En studie som undersöker ifall en träningsapplikation med inslag av digital personlig tränare och spelifiering kan öka motivation under träning2017Student paper other, 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to research whether an exercise application

    with a feature of gamification and personal trainer may increase motivation

    during exercise, as well as what features are desired in such an application.

    Training is something that is important for a person's well-being, thus the

    idea of the application is to get more people involved in physical activity.

    To understand what motivates people overall but also specifically to work

    out, several theories have been studied, such as achievement goal theory

    and the transtheoretical model of change. Seven interviews were conducted

    to find out what features were desired. They gave a variety of suggestions

    on features, including tips on new exercises and visual instructions. With

    the help of collected data from the interviews and examination of theories, a

    prototype was developed. In the prototype gamification has been

    implemented with game elements like levels and badges with the hope that

    gamification will help change behavior and strengthen motivation and

    commitment. In order to find out if the developed prototype could increase

    motivation during exercise, a number of user tests were conducted. In the

    test, they first had to fill in a questionnaire where they, among other things,

    had to indicate their attitude towards exercise. The participants were then

    asked to perform two identical workouts. The first only included a paper

    with instructions for the planned workout. The second workout was

    performed together with the prototype. During the two workouts,

    quantitative data was collected through Emotiv which measure the brain's

    electrical activity (EEG). Once the training sessions were completed,

    participants were asked to take part in an interview. These included

    questions about level of motivation, comparing one session to the other. By

    analyzing data from Emotiv, it was by no means possible to see that the

    participants became more motivated while using the prototype. However, it

    was clear from the interviews that participants felt more motivated and

    found it more fun when they were training with the prototype. Data from

    these interviews will form the basis for the final result. Gamification got a

    positive response from the participants during the interview when a couple

    of people thought that the game elements could definitely contribute to

    increased motivation. All participants during the user test stated that they

    were working out for their own sake, which can be seen as mastery-approach goals according to achievement goal theory. However, it is

    difficult to assert that the results in this study are absolutely certain as

    participants did not have enough time to interact with the prototype.

    Granode - A proposal for a new game design tool2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

      When creating computer games it is necessary to use extensive documentation so that everybody involved in the creative process is up to date. This paper has investigated what prospects there are to improve the GDD process to a more updated version that would be less linear in its format and more user-friendly to everybody involved.

     This paper evaluates the game designers’ available tools which were found to be inadequate to do an effective job, mostly because they are not suited for the complex task that is contemporary GDD creation and maintenance.

     It was also found that there exists software technology and methodology to address some of these problems; but no evidence has been found that it has been implemented for the computer game industry in a useful manner.

     Lastly, a suggestion for a framework that would use a more visual and amorphous workflow derived from the discussed theory is presented. This framework uses an open nomenclature in a node-graph structure where every node represents different entities/objects in the game and is connected to each other by their interaction between attributes.

    Employing action design research for designing course and laboratory to teach web management in mixed classroom2019In: Proceedings from the annual NOKOBIT conference held in Narvik 26-27 November 2019 / [ed] Jens Kaasbøll, Anh Nguyen Duc,Tom Roar Eikebrokk,Trond Vegard Johannesen,Anniken Karlsen,Pieter Jelle Toussaint, 2019, Vol. 27Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Due to the boom in the web industry and growing trends in online shopping, there is an increase in the demand for skilled work force to develop and manage the usable interactive web sites and web content for several companies across the world. Many students want to equip themselves with required web development knowledge by participating in courses from distance. Information and communication technologies (ICT) based on internet have opened up new potentials in higher education. To keep up with the influx of students several universities offer some coursework online and some have converted complete programs of study in order to make them entirely available online to campus as well as distance students (including professionals) at the same time. Distance education always have unique requirements. In this article, I reported the design of a course and an online lab for web development and management based on initial design principles derived from kernel theories such as Conversational Framework, Constructive Alignment and Personalized System of Instruction. The overall research was conducted using the action design research approach. The iterative cycles and critical reflections during the building, intervention and evaluation process helped to refine the initial design principles. The study contributes to the researchers and practitioners community by providing design principles and an online Lab model that utilizes state-of-the art technology for mixed classrooms.

    Innovative Approaches in Health Care: Observational Study at an Elderly Care Unit in Japan2019In: UBT International Conference / [ed] Edmond Hajrizi, UBT Knowledge center , 2019, article id 81Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study attempts to capture a holistic view of the phenomenon of ageing and what kind of impact information and communication technologies can have on the quality of life in ageing society, with special focus on health care. The systemic view recognizes the different perspectives of patients, front line care providers and the health care organization. The ultimate goal is to scrutinize the value co-creation opportunities as well as the challenges and risks when innovative technology is implemented in a complex service ecosystem. The empirical material is collected through an observational study at an elderly care unit in Tokyo, Japan, where robots are used in order to facilitate different kinds of social interaction among the elderly patients. In this context, it is highly relevant to discuss what kind of innovations can be considered as both desirable and feasible – and how the decisions can best be guided by different perspectives.

    Searching for A Governance Model to Secure the Data Flow in Organizations: an Indispensable Discussion2019In: UBT International Conference / [ed] Edmond Hajrizi, UBT Knowledge center , 2019, article id 80Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the end of the 1980s, there have been several initiatives to control and manage IT environments. ITIL is one of the more successful models, COBIT another. However, thanks to the IP protocol and Internet, since mid-2000 the world has seen a veritable data explosion, affecting IT governance. Some predictions expect current data volumes to grow more than 10 times till 2020, having serious implications both from governance and security perspectives. Additionally, we see some new EU regulations, i.e., Network and Information Security Directive (NIS) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), implemented in May 2018. The latter two will directly affect the scope of IT governance within the European Union and for non-European entities handling EU Citizen’s personal data, with substantial fines if not complying. Both regulations forces anyone handling such data to consider information strategies that include big data management, governance, and information security as a convoluted context. Particularly, GDPR make them to related questions, a governance package. This creates a need for a paradigm shift to remediate/mitigate identified limitations in today’s traditional governance models. This article discusses governance from a holistic perspective, based on the data flow, as per the requirements of GDPR. These are the issues which were not envisioned when today’s governance models were designed in the late 1980s or early 1990s.

    Character Creation Processes in MMORPGs: -    A qualitative study of determining important factors.2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Virtual worlds give us the opportunity to explore another self, a virtual character of the real life you. Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPGs) have become extremely popular over the last decade. It has also grown into a lucrative business. To keep the players, the game needs to be more than just a game. This study aimed at finding out what factors that determine which features of the character creation interface that are most important to players. The following research question was formed; “Which underlying factors affect how important different features of the character creation interface are to experienced MMORPG players?

    To be able to answer the question an extensive literature review was conducted. A qualitative approach was taken. Long interviews were made with five participants, two female and three male players. The interviews took place while they created a number of avatars in different MMORPGs. The interviews were then followed up. During the follow-ups, the impact the character creation process had for the players, were discussed. The findings indicate that the character creation interface is important for the players to get a good gaming experience. However different types of players require different things. Important features for the users to change were mainly; the head; the name; and adding parts of yourself on your character. The factors that determined the importance of these features were found to be; Player types; Identity types; Immersion levels; and whether or not the game or the gaming experience were new to the player. Another finding showed that the longer you have played a game the less bizarre the different races, classes and gender will seem. The study also indicated that the female participants had a hard time identifying with their male characters.

    Karaktärsskapandets karaktär: En undersökning om karaktärsskapandets betydelse i MMORPGs2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is focused on a better understanding of what computer gameplayers want to get out of their character and the character creation. Thequestion addressed in the paper was: "What is most important for a designerto consider when designing a character-creation part of a game?" The aimwas to gain a deeper understanding of the nature of the character creationprocess in order to better design the character creation part of future games.The study has been conducted with a qualitative method to illuminate thequestions in more depth. First, a qualitative interview was made, and afterthe interviews, three new questions were created, which were then postedon two Internet forums focusing on MMORPGs. The players who were themost interested in character creation and the process of this, were theplayers who sometimes engaged in role play. The players who partially orfully engaged in Player versus Player combat, had difficulties seeing anypoint in creating an identity or a unique look at all. The most importantthing that emerged from the investigation was that the designer needs toknow his audience. As a designer, you need to take into account whatplaying styles you design the game for. The important factors for theplayers to immerse themselves in their characters, was that their characterscould be made unique.

    Inter-organisatorisk kommunikationssäkerhet: En fallstudie av informationssäkerhetsarbetet runt e-recept2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Samtidigt som användandet av e-recept ökar i Sverige har Datainspektionen vid en tillsyn hos Apoteket AB konstaterat att det, i samband med överföringen av e-recept från vissa vårdgivare till Apoteket, finns brister i personuppgiftshanteringen. Hur uppstod dessa brister och finns det något de inblandade organisationerna kan göra för att undvika att liknande situationer uppstår i framtiden?

    Arbetet behandlar hanteringen av kommunikationssäkerhetsproblematik i ett inter-organisatoriskt perspektiv och beskriver hur det övergripande informationssäkerhetsarbetet påverkats av olika aktörers syn på ansvarsfrågor. Arbetet har sin utgångspunkt i en kvalitativ fallstudie där hanteringen av e-recept mellan Kalmar läns landsting och Apoteket AB står i fokus. Representanter från Apoteket AB, Kalmar läns landsting, Datainspektionen och Sjukvårdsrådgivningen SVR AB intervjuats i ett försök att beskriva, förstå och förklara de olika organisationernas syn på e-recept, dess kommunikationskanaler och kommunikationssäkerhetsansvaret vid överföring av elektroniska förskrivningar. Målet är att med hjälp av denna kunskap skapa ny förståelse för hur kommunikationssäkerhetsbrister kan uppstå i inter-organisatoriska sammanhang. 

    Som grund för diskussionen presenteras teoretiska aspekter på det svenska systemet för e-recept, följt av en vårdjuridisk översikt samt teorier inom informationssäkerhetsområdet. Studien visar att de grundläggande förutsättningarna för en fungerande inter-organisatorisk kommunikation finns men att aktörerna haft svårt att hitta lämpliga verktyg för att koordinera ansvarsfrågor. 

    Nyckelord: kommunikationssäkerhet, inter-organisatorisk samverkan, e-recept, informationssäkerhet, hälsoinformatik.

    Informationsbehov: Hur tillfredställs patienters informationsbehov? Är fokusgrupper användbar som metod?2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    För att få fram rätt information krävs en metod som belyser patienters behov och på så sätt kan hjälpa sjukvården att på bättre sätt ta hjälp av patienters åsikt. Syftet med uppsatsen är därför att få fram hur patienter upplever att deras informationsbehov av hälsoinformation tillfredställs. Vi vill även ta reda på hur detta behov ser ut idag och på vilka sätt det kan tillfredställas bättre.

    Vi vill även testa om fokusgrupper är lämplig som metod för att besvara vårt syfte.

    För att uppfylla syftet har vi samlat in data genom två fokusgrupper. En grupp bestod av personer med mer kontakt med sjukvården medan den andra bestod av personer med mindre kontakt med sjukvården. Med hjälp av resultatet från fokusgrupperna genomfördes en analys där vi fann områden som var särskilt viktiga. Vi har även utvärderat fokusgrupper som metod genom att jämföra med tidigare forskning inom området. Utifrån det insamlade materialet har vi utarbetat en modell som visar hur patienters informationsbehov kan tillfredställas. Denna modell är indelad i fyra delar utifrån hur stort behov patienten har av egen samt allmän information.

    Altus Statistics: Utveckling av ett statistiksystem2005Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Electronic marketing is advancing. There are, however many obstacles to overcome to be able to see the effect of this type of marketing effectively. Nowadays it’s hard for companies to value electronic services which doesn’t directly involve money. There are often a lack of follow-up of the information and new systems are required to be able to give a clear picture. This essay describes the construction of a prototype which shall be able to handle this type of information and present it efficiently. Most efforts have been laid on the construction phase and the documentation of this, considering the problem described. The project has been conducted for a company, Altus AB, who is in the business of searchenginepositioning. The result reveals that a company can enhance its force of competition by taking part of statistics and follow up visitor trends at their WebPages. It also shows that companies who can offer this kind of services, as Altus AB, can get a very good basis to use as an argument when to sell their services.

    Abstract [en]

    The study has a purpose designed to investigate within which framework automation of accounting and billing systems processes is possible through machine learning, as a result of providing guidance for when and where an implementation is relevant in the systems. For the study, a data collection has been carried out on a company that offers accounting and billing systems and works within the machine learning area. Interviews have been made at the company conducted to capture relevant empirical results. Aspects categorized from collected data are presented in possibilities, implementation, ethics and alternative approaches. Together with literature studies, the empirical categories have been analyzed and four frameworks identified. The frameworks identified are: competitiveness, technical factors, knowledge and skills as well as impact on occupational groups.Each frame contains information and examples of factors that should be considered. Companies can investigate important aspects of when and where an implementation of machine learning is possible and relevant in accounting and billing systems.

    Participatory Design: in Need of Angels2010In: Travelling Thoughtfulness: feminist technoscience stories / [ed] P. Elovaara, J. Sefyrin, M.B. Öhman, and C. Björkman, Umeå, Sweden: Umeå University , 2010, p. 115-134Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a sentence by Bob Dylan – the times they are a-changin’. This is true also for participatory design (PD) – today design projects are distributed between sites and people, and extended in time. PD is now diverse and multi-directional and in need of re-thinking designer responsibility. How to change our methods in line with concerned personnel’s abilities and ways of expressing themselves? Yet, still it is needed someone that overlooks and ensure the PD process. This is especially important when a PD project results in new experiences for people. We suggest that systems designers’ shoulder the responsibility as an angel, which we use as a metaphor for a person with the overall responsibility for the PD process. As part of this we suggest that systems designers would gain by adapting the PD process in line with the PAR methodology and by the use of Soft Systems Methodology’s Rich Picture building.

    A Cup of Coffee: Users’ Needs and Experiences of ICT in Homecare2011In: Human-Centered Design of E-Health Technologies: Concepts, Methods andApplications / [ed] Martina Ziefle, Carsten Röcker, IGI Global, 2011, p. 253-271Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The area of homecare is not normally associated with the use of Information and CommunicationTechnology (ICT). Today ICT and mobile ICT are being implemented within homecare practice to makethe job of caring more effective and attractive. This chapter focuses attention on the human aspectswhen an automatic planning system and a handheld computer were implemented in a homecare practice.The aim of the chapter is to explore care workers’ experiences of how these technologies supported andfacilitated their day-to-day work, but also how they affect daily work in practice. The authors’ findingsindicate that some of the wants and needs for ICT of the homecare team regarding their work practicewere met. The integration of principles from Participatory Action Research (PAR) in the ParticipatoryDesign (PD) process made it possible for staff to participate during the full development process, takepart in the design process and make decisions during the whole trial.

    Participation in e-Home Healthcare @ North Calotte2008In: Proceedings of the 5th Nordic Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, NordiCHI 2008: Building Bridges / [ed] Gulz, A., Magnusson, C., Malmborg, L., Eftring, H., Jönsson, B., and Tollmar, K., Association for Computing Machinery , 2008, p. 192-200Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Participation and the contribution of participatory design methods and techniques are explored in the context of a Scandinavian Home Healthcare project. The project was undertaken during 2004-2005. Its aim was to introduce mobile ICT equipment to health care workers in order to improve planning, including quality and precision of information exchange. The study was designed according to Participatory Action Research and Participatory Design principles. Methods employed in the project were observations, interviews, future workshops, and story boards to actively involve different stakeholders. The experience of the project indicates that, although the rhetoric was that of a participatory design and research project, participants are not equally regarded in terms of experiences and knowledge of the actual practice. Assumptions about technology influence development and implementation at the expense of the actual care activity. Further, participation and participatory design techniques used in the project demonstrate the complexity of home healthcare and the necessity to involve all the different occupational groups involved in the care of the client. However, organisational boundaries reinforced shortcomings in cross-functional and cross organisational cooperation. A final conclusion is that time for collaborative and collegial reflections is a necessity to support the learning process.

    In search of information systems value: a case study of the EHR benefits realisation efforts of three Swedish hospitals2014Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish public health care organisation could very well be undergoing its most significant change since its specialisation during the late 19th and early 20th century. At the heart of this change is a move from using manual patient journals to electronic health records (EHR). EHR are complex integrated organisational wide information systems (IS) that promise great benefits and value as well as presenting great challenges to the organisation. The Swedish public health care is not the first organisation to implement integrated IS, and by no means alone in their quest for realising the potential benefits and value that it has to offer. As organisations invest in IS they embark on a journey of value-creation and capture. A journey where a cost-based approach towards their IS-investments is replaced with a value-centric focus, and where the main challenges lie in the practical day-to-day task of finding ways to intertwine technology, people and business processes. This has however proven to be a problematic task. The problematic situation arises from a shift of perspective regarding how to manage IS in order to gain value. This is a shift from technology delivery to benefits delivery; from an IS-implementation plan to a change management plan. The shift gives rise to challenges related to the inability of IS and the elusiveness of value. As a response to these challenges the field of IS-benefits management has emerged offering a framework and a process in order to better understand and formalise benefits realisation activities. In this thesis the benefits realisation efforts of three Swedish hospitals within the same county council are studied. The thesis focuses on the participants of benefits analysis projects; their perceptions, judgments, negotiations and descriptions of potential benefits. The purpose is to address the process where organisations seek to identify which potential IS-benefits to pursue and realise, this in order to better understand what affects the process, so that realisation actions of potential IS-benefits could be supported. 

    A qualitative case study research design is adopted and provides a framework for sample selection, data collection, and data analysis. It also provides a framework for discussions of validity, reliability and generalizability. Findings displayed a benefits fluctuation, which showed that participants’ perception of what constituted potential benefits and value changed throughout the formal benefits management process. Issues like structure, knowledge, expectation and experience affected perception differently, and this in the end changed the amount and composition of potential benefits and value. Five dimensions of benefits judgment were identified and used by participants when finding accommodations of potential benefits and value to pursue. Identified dimensions affected participants’ perceptions, which in turn affected the amount and composition of potential benefits. During the formal benefits management process participants shifted between judgment dimensions. These movements emerged through debates and interactions between participants. Judgments based on what was perceived as expected due to one’s role and perceived best for the organisation as a whole were the two dominant benefits judgment dimensions. A benefits negotiation was identified. Negotiations were divided into two main categories, rational and irrational, depending on participants’ drive when initiating and participating in negotiations. In each category three different types of negotiations were identified having different characteristics and generating different outcomes. There was also a benefits negotiation process identified that displayed management challenges corresponding to its five phases. A discrepancy was also found between how IS-benefits are spoken of and how actions of IS benefits realisation are understood. This was a discrepancy between an evaluation and a realisation focus towards IS value creation. An evaluation focus described IS-benefits as well-defined and measurable effects and a realisation focus spoke of establishing and managing an on-going place of value creation. The notion of valuescape was introduced in order to describe and support the understanding of IS value creation. Valuescape corresponded to a realisation focus and outlined a value configuration consisting of activities, logic, structure, drivers and role of IS.

    Information Systems Values Scape2014In: International Journal of Business Information Systems, ISSN 1746-0972, E-ISSN 1746-0980, Vol. 17, no 1, p. 49-66Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses a proposed discrepancy between descriptions

    of benefits from information systems (IS) and actions of IS benefits realisation.

    It suggests that descriptions often are made from an evaluation focus

    perspective that does not support realisation activities. Using a qualitative

    single case-study the IS benefits realisation efforts of a Swedish hospital is

    studied. From the findings, the notion of valuescape as a value configuration is

    suggested to capture the proposed realisation focus, and thus support realisation

    activities.

    The Craft of IS/IT handling – ES research as a tool for Business Informatics Course structure2004In: MicroCAD 2004, Applied Information Engineering / [ed] Dr. Lehoczky Lásló, 2004, p. 197-203Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How will an organization achieve maximum business value from its IS and IT

    investments ? This question is one of the most frequently asked in many of today’s

    organizations that has invested in an IT infrastructure. The answer is both quite

    simple and complex. You need workers with the skills and ability to handle IT so

    that the organization’s IS/IT MVOI (maximum value of integration) is achieved.

    The answer generates at least two new questions: “How are you supposed to handle

    IT in order to achieve maximum value?”, and “Where are you to obtain the skills

    and ability that’s needed?”. The Baltic Business School at the university of Kalmar,

    Sweden, has the intention to help give the answer to both of these questions. The

    university is expanding its business informatics area which is putting focus on IS/IT

    handling and achieving business value. This answers the “Where” question. A

    business informatics course structure needs the ability to enable and equip the

    student. Inspiration and framework for this kind of a structure was found in the

    research results of a study that targeted how organizations achieved value from

    their enterprise systems investments. The ES research together with some

    assumptions and a few models, gave birth to the business informatics course

    structure that hopefully in the end will deliver workers with the ability and skills to

    handle IT in order to achieve maximum business value.

    Identifying And Measuring IT- Value Within The Public Healthcare Sector - The First Steps,2005In: MicroCAD 2005, Applied Information Engineering / [ed] Dr. Lehoczky Lásló, 2005, p. 173-180Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

          Like a gardener trying to tame and shape a tree that has run wild, organizations attempts  to tame the possibilities that IT investments offers. The concept of IT value is not new, although in the “post-hype” era the topic has been brought to life and gained a strong focus. If anyone thought that IT value would come easily the complexity of the value process begs the difference. A closer look at the process reveals several different components that is needed to take into consideration in order to be able  to understand the character of IT value. Even the most experienced organizations when it comes to measuring and handling IT value approach the task with a certain level of a fearful respect. It is against this background that the public healthcare organization should be viewed. An organization with an increased focus on IT investments and with no room for failure in combination with strong pressure both from the general public and from within the own organization to maximize value of tax money spent. The public healthcare sector is certainly not new to IT but experience on the concept of IT value measurements is not well documented and is therefore assumed to be at a limited level. The aim of this paper is to take the first steps in outlining the road ahead for a project targeted to study the identifying and measuring of IT value within the public healthcare organization. Hopefully the project will contribute to greater understanding on how to achieve value from IT investments.

    Project Knowledge Management: How to evaluate project knowledge, and Project Knowledge Management performance2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Project Knowledge Management and more specifically how organisations capture experiences gained in projects, is a critical topic in order to compete in the knowledge economy. Little attention has been given the catchphrase lessons learned practices as a research area. The purpose of the thesis is therefore to analyse the framework for the project closure phase through a Knowledge Management perspective. The purpose is also to evaluate how new knowledge, captured by project closure documents, can be identified and measured.

    To fulfil the purpose, the project closure phase and project closure documents within the project model Practical Project Steering are studied. Through a document study, the framework that the project model gives, and the project closure documents is analysed. The project closure documents are also examined regarding the experiences they capture. This is done by developing an instrument for identifying and measuring new knowledge.

    Through the study, it can be established that the project closure phase provides for a link between Knowledge Management and Project Management. It has an important contribution to Knowledge Management since it mitigates the risk of not transferring knowledge to the organisational memory. The use of predefined knowledge domains supports structure, and systemisation in the production of the documents, as well as in the compilation and dissemination of useful knowledge.

    New knowledge within the project closure phase can be identified and measured by dividing the documents into isolated pieces of information and using developed criteria to identify, and thereby quantify new knowledge. The instrument is highly reliable since it is ensured that the division of information does not result in any decontextualisation, and since the criteria used are very stable, and still acknowledge the dynamics of knowledge as well as the knowledge context.

    By using the measurements on empirical data, problems that are important to acknowledge are identified. There is an uneven distribution of knowledge types acquired by the project closure documents, regardless of their importance; resulting in loss of important knowledge. The difficulty to formalise important knowledge, results in failing to transfer knowledge to an external organisational memory. The difficulty to distribute knowledge sufficiently, results in re-invention of the wheel, and the same mistakes being made twice or more.

    Informationsbrist: En variabel som är svår att synliggöra2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Företag och organisationer står idag inför problemet med att ha en stor mängd information och data lagrad elektroniskt som är svår att hitta eller att användarna inte vet att den finns lagrad någonstans. Dessa brister i processerna skapar frustration hos användarna och kostnader för företaget/organisationen när användarna använder ”onödig” arbetstid för att leta information som de behöver för att genomföra sina arbetsuppgifter på rätt sätt och inom rimlig tid. Det borde vara en viktig punkt för företag/organisationer att åtgärda pga av hårdare konkurrens och en globare marknad som kräver effektiva processer och informationssystem. Forskningen kan underlätta genom att ta fram modeller för hur man kan mäta dessa kostnader så att företag och organisationer har möjlighet att synliggöra dessa kostnader och därmed kanske även synliggöra brister i processer och då framför allt inom informationsprocesserna.

    Vårt syfte med den här uppsatsen har varit att försöka kartlägga informationsbrister i de olika informationsflöden som finns inom företag och organisationer och speciellt försöka få fram var bristerna förekommer, inom de vertikala informationsflödena eller i de horisontella informationsflödena. Vi har dessutom varit intresserade av om företag har likheter i sina informationsbrister och om man kan räkna på vad denna informationsbrist kostar för ett företag.

    Vi har via en enkät till respondenter inom de företag vi är verksamma ställt frågor om information. Frågorna har varit av olika art, skalfrågor, öppna frågor och ja/nej-frågor. Vi har analyserat svaren och funnit att den information man tycker sig sakna mest och/eller inte hittar är den man behöver för att klara sitt dagliga arbete, dvs informationsbristen uppstår främst i de horisontella flödena i organisationerna. Enligt tidningen TechWorld 5/2008 lider de flesta företag av att information inte går att hitta på ett bra sätt eller att anställda över huvud taget inte visste att en viss typ av information fanns. Detta påpekande stämmer väl överens med resultatet av vår undersökning.

    De likheter vi upptäckt är detsamma som tidningen TechWorld 5/2008 påpekar, användarna hittar inte den information man behöver på Intranät och servrar pga av att respondenterna anser den ostrukturerad samt inte finns där man förväntar sig.

    Vi har skapat en enkel kostnadsmodell för hur man kan beräkna vad informationsbrist kan kosta. Då har vi utgått ifrån att beräkna enbart på den tid som användare lägger ned per dag i söktid och utgått från normal arbetstid och en uppskattad timpeng.

    Intranät: En studie kring tillvägagångssätt vid införande av intranät2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Information technology (IT) is a prerequisite for companies and organizations'development and competitiveness. One of the major challenges is to manage the increasingamounts of information in an efficient manner. One solution is to invest in an intranet thatsupports the business' internal information and communication. There is an identified gapin theory regarding how to implement intranets among small-and medium-sized businesses.

    The purpose of this thesis is to study the approach for how to implement intranets intosmall and medium-sized enterprises and develop recommendations for an intranetimplementation.

    An interpretive approach according to the action research method was applied because Iwas involved in what was studied. Besides the action research the empirical data consiststwo interviews, one with a company who has implemented an intranet and one with anintranet consultant.

    The theoretical framework is aimed to support the understanding of the implementation ofintranets and describes for example what an intranet is, reasons for failure of the intranet aswell as methods and models that may be suitable for an intranet implementation. Theempirical data is gathered from a company that has implemented an intranet and from aconsultant who works with intranets.

    The analysis contains a discussion around the theoretical framework and empirical data andsubsequently led to the conclusions of the study. The study has identified a number offactors that are important to have in mind when implementing an intranet. These are:

    • Support from the organization
    • Analysis of the current situation to examine the need
    • User involvement
    • Establishment and communication
    • Support from external consultant

    The most common mistakes in intranet implementations are Lack of initial support fromthe organization and Not enough focus on users.

    I recommend studying the Agile methods more closely because they are suitable for smallerprojects where changes can occur during the project. Every organization need to decidewhich method to use based on the existing conditions. Establishment and userinvolvement should be prioritized from the initial work with the intranet.

    Design av användargränssnitt för mobiltelefoner: En studie i utveckling och migrering av gränssnitt från datorer till mobiltelefoner2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Utveckling av mobilapplikationer är ett område som har haft en stark tillväxt de senaste åren. Området är relativt nytt och outforskat och förväntas att öka i många år framöver då allt fler företag ser möjligheten att nå ut till sina kunder var de än befinner sig.

    Syftet med studien är att utreda och identifiera hur utveckling kan ske av användbara gränssnitt till mobiltelefoner. Särskild fokus har legat på utveckling av gränssnitt som dessutom kommer att finnas representerade i flera olika produkter då detta ställer särskilda krav på dess gränssnitt.

    Prototypen av mobilapplikationen som utvecklats har genomgått en iterativ designprocess som är baserad på litteraturundersökning och målgruppsanalys av potentiella användare genom intervjuer och en enkät. Ett designramverk har skapats och använts vid utveckling av en mobilapplikation samtidigt som persona, kravspecifikation och scenarier har skapats och utgjort grunden för en potentiell användare. Prototypen har utvärderats genom användartester varpå en interaktiv prototyp har skapats i Adobe Flash.

    Applikationen som utvecklats med ramverket som stöd anses uppnå god användbarhet och vara effektiv att använda. Resultatet visar även på vikten av att en mobilapplikation har ett tydligt syfte, är enkel att använda och stödjer användarens mål på ett tillfredställande vis. Ingen definitiv slutsats kan dras om designramverkets validitet men resultatet utgör en god grund för fortsatt forskning och migrering och utveckling av gränssnitt för mobiltelefoner med ramverket som stöd.

    Effektiva arbetsmöten ur ett informationslogistiskt perspektiv: En fallstudie om hur mötesuppbyggnad, informationsöverföring och mötesöverflöd påverkar effektiviteten vid arbetsmöten2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Today's information society has resulted in escalated information flows within organizations, which results in increasing need for achieving efficiency and flexibility in work meetings. 25% of organizations' resources are placed in work meetings, work meetings that are often inefficient and resulting in undesirable results. Previous research shows that effectiveness in work meetings is a phenomenon that has been long studied and there are several aspects that determine whether the work meeting is considered effective or not. The subject has been studied primarily with the aim of streamlining decision making, which makes the area interesting to study from a different perspective. An important core of organizations is Information logistics, where information management are often highlighted in relation to organizations' profitability. Consequently, this was considered an interesting perspective to explore in connection with work meetings.The purpose of the case study was to visualize and describe any problems that concern content at work meetings from an information logistic perspective based on meeting structure, information transfer and meeting overflow. Appropriate theories within these areas were used to highlight critical success factors.Research questions of the study have been answered using a qualitative method in which semi-structured interviews have been used for data collection. The collected material was then analyzed in six steps. Consideration of quality criteria and research ethics have been taken throughout the process. Results showed that respondents often experience work meetings as less effective and information transfer may sometimes be inadequate. The results also pointed out the fact that unnecessary meetings are held occasionally, which contributes to an abundance of meetings. When the results were set against theoretical reference framework and research questions of the survey, the case was found to be problematic in all investigated areas resulting in a general experience of less efficient work meetings.By applying an information logistical approach and critically reviewing content at work meetings based on meeting structure, information transfer and meeting overflow, the case company could review work meetings and possibly create a meeting structure as well as situational and customized content. These efforts can hopefully increase the efficiency of work meetings, which in the long run can result in high profitability for the business.

    Kommunikation vid uppföljning av försäljning: Identifiering av en kommunikationsprocess problemområden2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The selected company for this study had experienced some issues regarding the communication process between the company and their customers, when it came to after sales. The company therefore requested information regarding how the communication process looks today, how both the customers and the company would like the communication to look like and how the communication in the process should be mediated between both parts. The aim of this study was to study the communication process between a selected company and their customers when it came to after sales in the business-to-business market within the industrial sector. The theories that was selected for this study was Shannon & Weavers communication model, Schramm’s communication model and Media Richness Theory. The data for this study was collected from interviews and one observation, the study also was an inductive study.  The result of this study was a map of the communication process and a map that showed where in the process that there are issues according to the collected data. In the result of this study the proposals for process improvements are also presented. The result was analyzed and categorized according to the method ”analyze-process” and was divided into the categories communication, documentation and process improvement. In the chapter for discussion the result of this study was discussed related to the theories, previous research and the practical problem that was presented in the beginning of the report. In the discussion chapter, there was also a discussion regarding the chosen methods for this study. The conclusion of this study was that the selected company and their customers had a different view of the communication process when it came to after sales. The different views were mostly connected to the preferred communication channel and the issues of the communication process.

    Abstract [en]

    User participation in system development is an increasingly important role in the development of a new system. Great emphasis is placed on the system to contribute right information at the right time. To achieve success in system development is end-user involvement required. Several studies have been conducted with focus why an end-user should participate, the end-user participations positive and negative aspects and the criteria at the selection of end-users.

    The purpose of this work is to compare existing user participation in the system development process with a methodology called ETHICS and its approach to user involvement. The delimitation is small-to-medium enterprises (SME). Through gathered information contribute with a classification of the degree of user involvement, which occurs in the system development process.

    The work relates on a qualitative study with a deductive approach. With the basic information gathered build the interviews, and to have the collected information in mind. Since a comparison between theory and empirical data would be performed was also the aspect of how user involvement actually emerged in reality studied.

    The results were relatively similar approaches among those surveyed informants. User participation often occurred because the informants themselves believed they had a fundamental function for the entire system development process. Depending on the customer size of operations different classifications of approach according to the methodology ETHICS have been made. The most prevalent approach was still the representative approach to user involvement.

    Fallbeskrivning av en Informationslogistisk applikation: Ur två kognitionsvetenskapliga perspektiv2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats utreder ifall två kognitionsvetenskapliga perspektiv kan bidra till en effektivare informationslogistik.

    Med detta som bakgrund har ett tvärvetenskapligt förhållningssätt använts för att framhäva kontraster mellan de båda områdena. Teori har tagits från kognitionsvetenskapens nätverks- och artificiella intelligens perspektiv samtidigt som empirin utgörs av en fallbeskrivning av en Informationslogistisk applikation. Kontraster mellan de båda områdena har vägts mot varandra och teorier om på vilka sätt de två perspektiven skulle kunna berika den informationslogistiska applikationen har dragits. Dessutom har mer generella slutsatser dragits från nätverks- och det artificiella intelligens perspektiven för att besvara hur de på en generell nivå skulle kunna bidra med kunskaper till andra informationslogistiska applikationer.

    Resultatet i uppsatsen visar att det med ett tvärvetenskapligt förhållningssätt går att importera kunskaper från det kognitionsvetenskapliga hållet till informationslogistiken.

    Utveckling av intranät: med fokus på användbarhet2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Intranets are used in many companies today. An intranet is used as a channel of communication and as stock-in-trade within many Swedish companies and public organisations. Now in focus is the development of intranets, there is a need to create order in the growing amount of data/information/applications (Bark et al., 2002).

    Unfortunately there are loads of problems and difficulties when implementing and developing intranets. This often generates intranets that are difficult to use due to extensive engineering constraints. One reason to these problems is that the users of the intranet are not in focal point, it is hard to get the users demands and needs to direct the development work (Gulliksen & Göransson, 2002). To reach success with an intranet investment, analysis of the employees (users) needs is necessary (Bark et al., 2002).

    The main objective with this report is to examine the users needs in an intranet in order to increase usability. This is done at a reference company that is about start the development work with the intranet. This is done by first finding faults and vantages in an existing intranet and thereafter create a ground for developing intranets. The report has a positivistic approach where knowledge is created from the empirics. Using qualitative research methods such as participating observations and interviews, the empirics has been collected at the reference company.

    The result shows that the existing intranet does not fulfill the users needs, a number of faults has been detected in the structure, the content and the interface of the intranet. Faults in entirety are a big and an overall problem that reappears within all three categories. Vantages with the intranet is that it has become better and better over the years and the attitude to its existence is positive. The faults and vantages has been turned into a list of needs that can be used when companies are about to develop their intranets as it shows the aspects that are important in the perspective of the users.

    Important to remember is that an intranet is all about content and that the users are highly task oriented. Therefore it is essential to first and foremost make sure that the intranet is usable before focusing on the aesthetical design.

    Logistik: Nyckeln till fortsatt framgång för e-handel?2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Recent years have seen a marked increase in the e-commerce industry. With this increase, logistics plays an important role for companies to create competitive advantages. This is emphasized in previous research, where logistics has been identified as a major factor for success in the e-commerce industry.

     

    The report aims to help fill the knowledge gap that exists when it comes to the logistics of e-commerce.

     

    We have, together with our case-company identified five focus areas to study closer. These areas are vendor relationship, inventory, forecasting, information management and customer relationship.

     

    We have made a qualitative study with interviews in a case-company to produce nuanced data. Reliability arose through numerous interviews with people who all hold extensive knowledge of the value-chain and where we have been able to compare some answers.

     

    The result in this report consists of the analyzed data from the survey done at the case-company. It revolves around the five focus areas as previously described.

     

    The discussion revealed that there are significant opportunities for improvement for more efficient logistics in all focus areas. It was also, by putting more focus on operational logistics, companies can gain a competitive edge in a rapidly growing and competitive market.

     

    In conclusion, we were able to provide answers to the questions we had and have therefore fulfilled the purpose of the report. E-commerce success depends largely on how the logistics are handled. In this work, one can´t just focus on the delivery of the product/service. It is equally important to manage the processes involved in the beginning and in the middle of the chain in order to offer a good final product. Having a strategy for how the communication with the customer and the supplier shall be maintained is an advantage to be able to make quick decisions and build lasting relationships. Information that is integrated also offers help to streamline processes and decision-making.

    Ett nytt agilt värdegrundskoncept för system- och mjukvaruutveckling?: - En kvalitativ nulägesanalys hos ett IT-konsultbolag2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This candidate assignment has been conducted through a zero-position analysis at an IT- based consulting company. The study identifies the current situation within the organization to see if the employees' experiences match the hopes the organization has with a new introduced values concepts. A values concepts aimed at identifying employees' internal motivation and promoting personal development as well as how the new values concepts aims to solve the problems in system and software development. The organization, in turn, wants it to lead to internal and external value creation and commitment for all parties, linked to community benefits, sustainability and work environment.   The study has been conducted with an inductive approach, where the qualitative survey has collected data based on six interviews, to gain a deeper understanding of the employees' own thoughts and opinions. The collected empire has since been compared, analyzed and discussed in relation to theory and previous research. Based on similarities and differences, we could then draw a conclusion about how the present situation in the organization is in relation to what the theory says.   The result of the study shows that respondents have a common view that the organization is innovative and places employees in focus. Within the organization there is a sense of togetherness, responsiveness and participation, which creates commitment, motivation and personal development among the employees. Respondents see the new values concepts as a good complement to the agile methodology within the organization as well as a good agile tool. The organizational culture is reflected by good atmosphere, fresh and inviting office environment and honesty towards the customer. There were also some differences of opinion during the investigation, such as uncertainty about how the information is provided and managed.

    Användbara webbapplikationer med AJAX2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Webbens utveckling går i raskt tempo och nya tekniker utvecklas ständigt. På senare tid har en ny teknik växt fram som kallas för remote scripting. Med detta menas att man kan göra anrop till servern utan att ladda om hela webbsidan. Genom att utnyttja denna teknik kan man också reducera tiden för att hämta data från servern och tiden det tar att uppdatera informationen i webbläsaren. Det har funnits metoder och tekniker för detta ett antal år men det var inte förrän Jesse James Garret myntade uttrycket AJAX i sin artikel ”Ajax: A New Approach to Web Applications” som tekniken uppmärksammades i större skala. AJAX står för Asynchronous JavaScript And XML och används för tekniker som utnyttjar XMLHTTP-objektet för att skicka och ta emot data.

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka om man kan göra webbapplikationer mer användbara genom att använda sig av AJAX. Ett andra syfte är att se vilka saker som är viktigt att tänka på när man utvecklar applikationer med denna teknik. Detta har gjorts genom att ta fram en prototyp i AJAX som har jämförts med en befintlig webbapplikation. Användartest har utförts på både webbapplikation och prototypen. Därefter har resultaten av de båda användartesten analyserats och jämförts.

    Resultaten visar att det finns en del saker som kan vara bra att ha i åtanke då man utvecklar AJAX-applikationer. Att ge användaren återkoppling när information har sparats är en av de sakerna. Man kan också behöva ge användaren vägledningsinformation då detta är en ny interaktionsform på webben. Efter en jämförelse mellan de båda användartesten uppkom en indikation om en förbättrad användbarhet i prototypen. Det visade sig att effektiv användning var den punkt där användbarheten hade förbättrats mest.

    Strategisk planering av Knowledge Managemen2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The environment of organisations is today becoming more globalized and it is important to optimize the ways of handling with information and knowledge. In this constant change that is going on has the concept Knowledge Management (KM) become popular. KM can according to us be how an organisation work and handle knowledge in order to strengthen their competitiveness.

    Our purpose with this paper has been to examine how KM is described in the, in most parts, English literature and how it can be applied to Swedish organisations in order to measure the KM-condition. The aim of this research project is also to generate changes and improvement suggestions for a global organisation such as our reference organisation.

    In order to obtain our purpose we have chosen to execute a survey investigation that is built on “The Knowledge Management Fieldbook” (1999) authored by Bukowitz and Wil-liams. With this literature the reader is given an opportunity to investigate and measure how a chosen organisation handles knowledge.

    The research shows that the chosen investigation form is possible to use on Swedish or-ganisations even though there are some shortages. Among our proposals, to improve the survey investigation, are a change of language use and to make it possible for the investiga-tor to divide the investigation into smaller parts.

    Despite the shortages in the investigation have we been able to produce a number of sug-gestions for our reference organisation to work with. These suggestions are for example about changes and improvement in KM handling. The survey investigation indicate among other things that the respondents lack an overall picture and understanding for the organi-sations vision of KM. Furthermore our result indicates that the organisation could be able to become even more competitive through appointing specialist posts like for example a Knowledge Manager.

    Säkerhetsställa kunskapsöverföring efter avslutat projekt: En studie av hur projektledare kan arbeta för att förbättra kunskapsöverföring i projektform2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Organisationer strävar efter att ha konkurrensfördelar på sina respektive marknader. Kunskapshantering är ett sätt att skapa dessa fördelar. När arbete sker i projektform skapas en tillfällig organisation för att skapa ett resultat, projektledaren har nyckelrollen i denna tillfälliga organisation. Det är denna individ som ska styra, leda och förvalta projektet på rätt väg. Kunskapsöverföring under projekt görs både formellt och informellt, men det styrande dokumentet, den så kallade slutrapporten är mer anpassad för organisationen som strävar efter att se ett effektiv och bra resultat. Kunskapshantering sker i mån av tid, detta kan utvecklas genom klara direktiv och tydliga ramar för kunskapsöverföring i projekt. Studiens resultat återspeglar att projektledarna uppfattar att organisationerna fokuserar mer på resultatet än kunskapsskapandet. De anser att det finns en tidsbrist för att kunna genomföra kunskapsöverförande på bästa möjliga sätt, nya projekt blir tilldelade och kunskaper riskerar att glömmas bort i dokument som sällan används. Undersökningen har tittat på hur projektledare arbetar med kunskapsöverföring, vilka förutsättningar som måste ges projektledarna samt hur detta kan förbättras. Därav har två dokument skapats för att förbättra arbetet kring kunskapsöverföring vid avslutade projekt. Detta genererar ett tydligt sätt för projektledare att arbeta på när det gäller kunskapsöverföring och minimerar risken att det blir ett dokument som alla andra, och kunskapen kan tas tillvara på av andra.

    Säkerhet i smarttelefoner: En jämförelsestudie mellan bärbara datorer och smarttelefoner i verksamheter2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Smartphones have become more common as business tools within the workplace. With its many features and great flexibility, the smartphone has stormed the business world and become an alternative or complement to the laptop. As these mobile units' popularity has increased, the interest of businesses to invest in this new technology has increased, but has security kept up with the technology developments?

     

    This study aims to conduct a study to see if the companies in the IT industry have the same safety awareness for smart phones to laptops.

     

    The study shows that companies have greater safety awareness and higher safety requirements for laptops than smartphones. Meanwhile, both end-users and management are well aware of the risks and threats that the smartphone is facing.

    Persona: En metod att utveckla och införa persona i en organisation2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    In this thesis we aim to extend the current theories about a concept called persona. A persona is a model of a user, mostly based on qualitative research and made with such accuracy that it to some extent can be used as a replacement of a real user in a development process and as a communicative tool. We will present a way of constructing this persona without meeting the actual users and follow up with interviews from the organization using them. This will lead to a model over the process of introducing personas as a concept in an organization,previously not familiar with the concept. The model is adapted to also work for projects and organizations where the concept is already known.

    The high school students’ choice of Internet-based communication tools: Gymnasieelevernas val av Internetbaserade kommunikationsverktyg2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The subject of the thesis is to examine what communication tools the students of Kungsmadskolan in Växjö uses to communicate on the Internet and what are the motives that lie behind this choice and continued use. The thesis focus on five groups of communication tools: chat, Internet forum, community, Internet telephony and e-mail. The purpose of the study is to investigate and understand the motive that lies behind the choice of Internet-based communication tools done by high school students. We have chosen a qualitative method to conduct our research. We have collected empirical data through discussions with two focus groups divided into one with only boys and one with only girls from Kungsmadskolan in Växjö. We then analyze this data and draw conclusions from it. Prior to the focus group discussions, we created a theoretical framework. This framework has been used to steer and support the discussions and as a theoretical support in our analysis. The framework consists of five parts: communication, communication tools, motivation, choice and acceptance. Through this study we have been able to establish that the most important influence on the students choice of communication tools comes from their friends. This means that the strongest motivation to their choice comes from the search for social communion. Communication tools that the students use are: MSN, Flashback.com, Forumet.nu, Fuska.nu, Bilddagboken.se, Lunarstorm, Community.se, Helgon.nu, Facebook, Hotmail, school-mail, work-mail and Spraymail.

    IoT i en högt säkerhetsklassad miljö: Tillvägagångssätt för hanteringen2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The issue with the Internet of Things (IoT) today is relevant due to its exponential growth and development in users and devices. Due to the rapid expansion there is a lack in standards and research in this area. IoT currently is a vast concept, however what will be covered in this report will be several general topics to give a base understanding of the concept, alongside further investigation into sensors and the potential vulnerabilities they introduce as one of the more problematic devices regarding security. The aim of this report is to give a better understanding as well as to illuminate the potential risks, requirements and solutions to simplify decision making for all involved in the projects relating to IoT. This report however will not cover implementation of theorised models or recommendations presented. Furthermore, it will not cover General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), though this would prove to be interesting for future research. Similarly, further research on different frameworks, standards and a greater understanding from working with experts in the area would prove useful also.

    Correspondence with experts in the field and a multitude of studies documenting vulnerabilities, threats, identifications of these and recommendations are present. Given how a base understanding of the IoT environment are required, known vulnerabilities, layers and threats to the system are also presented. On the whole IoT can be seen as a vulnerable physicality and a small server with many gaps in knowledge regarding the topic, inclusive of lack of reliable information on the physical environments, limitations of devices, updates (or lack thereof) and several other factors. Threats (covered in this report) to IoT include DDOS, malware, weak passwords, data leakage, eavesdropping and more. Risks within IoT can be categorised into four groups: protection of personal integrity, protection of the dissemination of secret data, destruction of equipment and destruction that gives a secondary effect through harm of a person. Because IoT can resemble a server, identification of risks should be covered by including risk/vulnerability analysis, risk/vulnerability assessment and knowledge of how the organisation or individual will affect IoT.

    This report aims to clarify operations within high security environments, defined by environments that hold sensitive data: yielding disastrous results if data would be compromised. Through research within this report, it has been deduced that all IoT environments require high security, however given there's no simple way to fully secure any IoT system. As previous mentioned, given the grand scale of IoT (i.e. every individual system and its environment) it needs to be broken down into layers in order to fully detect and provide solutions to prevalent risks. There are many measures and recommendations within IoT security, for instance: this includes the approach, where the responsibility lies or the techniques that relate to specific areas in the IoT.

    A case study of InterAdria; regarding security strategy of a SME2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Today, security strategy has a crucial role in society, which does not imply only to large companies, but also and especially to Small Medium Enterprises (SME’s).

    The intention of this thesis is to provide instructions and help enterprises that need assistance in applying proper security strategy. This thesis comprises the most crucial areas of security within an enterprise. Its aim is to study more deeply the situation of the current security strategy, of a telecom and a software development enterprise, by which the enterprise can extract enough information to provide a proper system. The purpose is to study, analyze, explore and bring some conclusions with new ideas on how to improve and propose a new security strategy that can fit and that can be appropriate for this enterprise.

    Regarding the exploration and research for the enterprise, “fragile assets” are the target to be taken in consideration such as “software”, “databases” and “important data”.

    The method which is used in this thesis, is the case study method, which has best suited the purpose of this thesis by covering the logic of design, data collection techniques and data analysis. As a theory the OCTAVE-sm approach was applied. This approach has three phases which each contains its own processes. These processes were followed and used for the evaluation of the current state in one Small Medium Enterprise (SME) called InterAdria. The use of OCTAVE-sm approach in this thesis can be a guide to all other Small Medium Enterprises (SME’s) that struggle with their security strategy same as the enterprise mentioned above. The conclusion was based on the entire data gathering that was done by following the steps of the Octave-sm approach.
