  • A Multilevel Model of IT Platforms for the Needs of Enterprise IT
           Landscape Analyses
    • Authors: Monika Kaczmarek-Heß; Sybren de Kinderen
      Pages: 315 - 329
      Abstract: Abstract Conceptual modeling supports analyses of IT artifacts and the enterprise action system they are embedded in. However, in this paper it is argued that for IT landscape analyses existing modeling approaches fall short due to, among others, (a) problems with accounting for specifics of the IT domain, e.g., an elaborate technical terminology with various hierarchy levels, and (b) inadequate support for automated analyses within and across those different levels. In this paper, the authors discuss how a designed multilevel model of IT platforms created using the multilevel modeling language FMMLx can help overcome these problems. To this end, limitations of IT platform models created with conventional, two-level modeling languages are shown. Furthermore,  benefits resulting from the application of the selected multilevel modeling language are discussed.

  • Methodology and Tool Support for Adaptive Idea Exploitation in Open
           Innovation
    • Authors: Sebastian Huber
      Pages: 331 - 345
      Abstract: Abstract The lack of efficiency and transparency regarding cross-company collaboration in the field of open innovation often leads to cost intensive and unsuccessful products and services. This is because traditional approaches fail to cope with emerging requirements in innovation projects, e.g., the vertical and horizontal integration of strategic partners within and across the company’s value network. However, to maintain their competitive advantage, companies seek a constant and sustainable development of their product and service portfolio. In this context, knowledge work plays an important role in the collaborative development of innovative product and service ideas. For that reason, knowledge workers need systematic support regarding both methodological and operational challenges. The concept of Adaptive Case Management emerged from the necessity to support knowledge workers in unpredictable and highly creative working environments, especially in the field of Business Process Management. Therefore, the contribution shows, both from a conceptual and technological point of view, how to combine those approaches to support knowledge workers in dynamic innovation projects. To test the validity of the concept, a software prototype serves as the foundation for interviews with experts of the innovation department of a large international industrial company.

  • Do Reflexive Software Development Teams Perform Better'
    • Authors: Adarsh Kumar Kakar
      Pages: 347 - 359
      Abstract: Abstract Reflexivity, the extent to which teams reflect upon and modify their functioning, is widely recognized as a key factor influencing performance of work teams. The paper proposes that outcome interdependence, defined as the extent to which team members perceive that attainment of goals by their colleagues will facilitate their own goal achievement, will moderate the effect of team reflexivity on its performance. An empirical study with 332 team members of 34 software projects reveals that as predicted team reflexivity and outcome interdependence have both synergistic and antagonistic impacts on team performance. While high outcome interdependence magnified the positive impacts of team reflexivity on its effectiveness, an increase in team reflexivity at low outcome interdependence had a deleterious impact. However, an opposite effect was observed for team efficiency. Further, agile teams demonstrated higher outcome interdependence and team reflexivity, and thereby higher effectiveness, but lower efficiency, compared to teams adopting plan-drive methods of software development. Finally, in general, agile software development projects performed better than plan driven projects for innovative software development, while projects adopting plan-driven methods performed better than agile projects for routine software development.

  • Does the Framing of Progress Towards Virtual Rewards Matter'
    • Authors: Dennis Kundisch; Tobias von Rechenberg
      Pages: 207 - 222
      Abstract: Abstract A natural experiment on a popular German Question & Answer community is used to find out whether the small-area hypothesis applies to user activation by means of a virtual reward in the form of badges. Koo and Fishbach’s small-area hypothesis posits that individuals in pursuit of a goal are more highly motivated when focusing on the smaller percentage of progress towards their goal, irrespective of whether this figure represents the actions already completed or those still remaining. Consistent with the authors’ theoretical predictions, the study finds empirical evidence for the small-area effect and its activating power, translated here into increased online user contributions. Besides contributing to the literature with an empirical study anchored in theory, the findings have direct practical implications for designers of online virtual reward systems by suggesting more effective (and motivating) ways of framing user progress towards virtual rewards.

  • Successful Business Model Types of Cloud Providers
    • Authors: Stine Labes; Nicolai Hanner; Ruediger Zarnekow
      Pages: 223 - 233
      Abstract: Abstract The acceleration of technical change in the fast moving electronics market increases the uncertainty and risk for IT providers. Influenced by new IT provisioning concepts such as cloud computing, providers are looking to identify stable guidelines and success factors within existing and new business models. The authors have conducted an intensive analysis of the business model characteristics of 45 providers in the cloud market that are critical to success. A cloud business model framework with 105 characteristics was used to systemize the business models, and the data was analyzed statistically in regard to indicators for success. The results revealed 42 success-related business model characteristics, and a cluster analysis led to three common combinations of characteristics that describe meta types of cloud business models. The most promising meta type is a specialized cloud provider with customer-oriented branch solutions, while small-scale newcomers with aggregation services experience difficulties to be competitive. To evaluate and verify the results and the success of each business model type, 12 expert interviews were conducted. The interview statements were aggregated and summarized to offer recommendations for action and a prediction for the success of cloud business models.

  • Recommendation-Based Conceptual Modeling and Ontology Evolution Framework
           (CMOE+)
    • Authors: Frederik Gailly; Nadejda Alkhaldi; Sven Casteleyn; Wouter Verbeke
      Pages: 235 - 250
      Abstract: Abstract Within an enterprise, various stakeholders create different conceptual models, such as process, data, and requirements models. These models are fundamentally based on similar underlying enterprise (domain) concepts, but they differ in focus, use different modeling languages, take different viewpoints, utilize different terminology, and are used to develop different enterprise artifacts; as such, they typically lack consistency and interoperability. This issue can be solved by enterprise-specific ontologies, which serve as a reference during the conceptual model creation. Using such a shared semantic repository makes conceptual models interoperable and facilitates model integration. The challenge to accomplish this is twofold: on the one hand, an up-to-date enterprise-specific ontology needs to be created and maintained, and on the other hand, different modelers also need to be supported in their use of the enterprise-specific ontology. The authors propose to tackle these challenges by means of a recommendation-based conceptual modeling and an ontology evolution framework, and we focus in particular on ontology-based modeling support. To this end, the authors present a framework for Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) as a conceptual modeling language, and focus on how modelers can be assisted during the modeling process and how this impacts the semantic quality of the resulting models. Subsequently, a first, large-scale explorative experiment is presented involving 140 business students to evaluate the BPMN instantiation of our framework. The experiments show promising results with regard to incurred overheads, intention of use and model interoperability.

  • Meta Modeling for Business Process Improvement
    • Authors: Florian Johannsen; Hans-Georg Fill
      Pages: 251 - 275
      Abstract: Abstract Conducting business process improvement (BPI) initiatives is a topic of high priority for today’s companies. However, performing BPI projects has become challenging. This is due to rapidly changing customer requirements and an increase of inter-organizational business processes, which need to be considered from an end-to-end perspective. In addition, traditional BPI approaches are more and more perceived as overly complex and too resource-consuming in practice. Against this background, the paper proposes a BPI roadmap, which is an approach for systematically performing BPI projects and serves practitioners’ needs for manageable BPI methods. Based on this BPI roadmap, a domain-specific conceptual modeling method (DSMM) has been developed. The DSMM supports the efficient documentation and communication of the results that emerge during the application of the roadmap. Thus, conceptual modeling acts as a means for purposefully codifying the outcomes of a BPI project. Furthermore, a corresponding software prototype has been implemented using a meta modeling platform to assess the technical feasibility of the approach. Finally, the usability of the prototype has been empirically evaluated.

  • Design Blueprint for Stress-Sensitive Adaptive Enterprise Systems
    • Authors: Marc T. P. Adam; Henner Gimpel; Alexander Maedche; René Riedl
      Pages: 277 - 291
      Abstract: Abstract Stress is a major problem in the human society, impairing the well-being, health, performance, and productivity of many people worldwide. Most notably, people increasingly experience stress during human-computer interactions because of the ubiquity of and permanent connection to information and communication technologies. This phenomenon is referred to as technostress. Enterprise systems, designed to improve the productivity of organizations, frequently contribute to this technostress and thereby counteract their objective. Based on theoretical foundations and input from exploratory interviews and focus group discussions, the paper presents a design blueprint for stress-sensitive adaptive enterprise systems (SSAESes). A major characteristic of SSAESes is that bio-signals (e.g., heart rate or skin conductance) are integrated as real-time stress measures, with the goal that systems automatically adapt to the users’ stress levels, thereby improving human-computer interactions. Various design interventions on the individual, technological, and organizational levels promise to directly affect stressors or moderate the impact of stressors on important negative effects (e.g., health or performance). However, designing and deploying SSAESes pose significant challenges with respect to technical feasibility, social and ethical acceptability, as well as adoption and use. Considering these challenges, the paper proposes a 4-stage step-by-step implementation approach. With this Research Note on technostress in organizations, the authors seek to stimulate the discussion about a timely and important phenomenon, particularly from a design science research perspective.

  • How to Succeed with Cloud Services'
    • Authors: Manuel Trenz; Jan Huntgeburth; Daniel Veit
      Abstract: Abstract How can cloud providers be successful' Severe competition and low up-front commitments create enormous challenges for providers of consumer cloud services when attempting to develop a sustainable market position. Emergent trends like consumerization lead to high growth rates and extend the reach of these services far into the enterprise sphere. Using a freemium model, many providers focus on establishing a large customer base quickly but fail to generate revenue streams in the long run. Others charge consumers early but do not reach their growth targets. Based on a representative sample of 596 actual cloud service users, the study examines how consumer cloud services can become self-sustainable on the basis of the user base and revenue streams they generate. The authors identify two mechanisms that influence the success of consumer cloud services, dedication- and constraint-based mechanisms, and show how they drive different elements of success. They find that satisfaction impacts the success of cloud services in terms of user generation and continuance, while switching barriers need to be in place to generate revenues. The results indicate that focusing on a single success element can be misleading and insufficient to understand the success of cloud services. The key findings are used to derive recommendations for three generic strategies that cloud providers can apply to become successful in their competitive market environment.

  • Standard International Trade Classification
    • Authors: Norbert Luttenberger; Jesper Zedlitz
      Abstract: Abstract Trade classifications are a necessary prerequisite for the compilation of trade statistics, and they should – beyond that – be regarded as a valuable base for the definition of shared controlled vocabularies for linked business data that deal with import, export etc. The Standard International Trade Classification (SITC) provided by the UN Statistics Division is a widely used classification mostly applied for scientific and analytical purposes. SITC – as most other trade classifications – is available today only in text or spreadsheet formats. These formats reveal the inner hierarchical structure of SITC to the human reader, because SITC trade codes are built according to the decimal classification scheme, but unfortunately, SITC’s inner structure is opaque to computer applications in text and spreadsheet formats. The paper discusses an approach to set up an OWL-2 ontology for SITC that states subsumption relations between classes of goods. This kind of semantic underpinning of SITC is suited to ease both checking and extending SITC and to derive from it a shared controlled vocabulary for business linked data. Some problems of today’s SITC (among them missing inner nodes of the trade code hierarchy) are carefully discussed, and the paper motivates several decisions that were taken for ontology design. Finally, the study introduces the semantic reasoner as a tool for the (at least partial) automatic derivation of structural information for SITC from the trade code building rule. The paper reports on reasoner runtimes observed for different versions of the SITC ontology and for different versions of the Pellet reasoner.

  • Prioritization of Interconnected Processes
    • Authors: Martin Lehnert; Maximilian Röglinger; Johannes Seyfried
      Abstract: Abstract Deciding which business processes to improve is a challenge for all organizations. The literature on business process management (BPM) offers several approaches that support process prioritization. As many approaches share the individual process as unit of analysis, they determine the processes’ need for improvement mostly based on performance indicators, but neglect how processes are interconnected. So far, the interconnections of processes are only captured for descriptive purposes in process model repositories or business process architectures (BPAs). Prioritizing processes without catering for their interconnectedness, however, biases prioritization decisions and causes a misallocation of corporate funds. What is missing are process prioritization approaches that consider the processes’ individual need for improvement and their interconnectedness. To address this research problem, the authors propose the ProcessPageRank (PPR) as their main contribution. The PPR prioritizes processes of a given BPA by ranking them according to their network-adjusted need for improvement. The PPR builds on knowledge from process performance management, BPAs, and network analysis – particularly the Google PageRank. As for evaluation, the authors validated the PPR’s design specification against empirically validated and theory-backed design propositions. They also instantiated the PPR’s design specification as a software prototype and applied the prototype to a real-world BPA.

  • Interactive Reputation Systems
    • Authors: Johannes Sänger; Günther Pernul
      Abstract: Abstract Early reputation systems use simple computation metrics that can easily be manipulated by malicious actors. Advanced computation models that mitigate their weaknesses, however, are non-transparent to the end-users thus lowering their understandability and the users’ trust towards the reputation system. The paper proposes the concept of interactive reputation systems that combine the cognitive capabilities of the user with the advantages of robust metrics while preserving the system’s transparency. Results of the evaluation show that interactive reputation systems increase both the users’ detection ability (robustness) and understanding of malicious behavior while avoiding trade-offs in usability.

  • Towards a User-Centered Feedback Design for Smart Meter Interfaces to
           Support Efficient Energy-Use Choices
    • Authors: Anders Dalén; Jan Krämer
      Abstract: Abstract Based on interviews of users’ experience with current smart-meter technologies the authors propose, implement and evaluate a user-centered design of an energy-use information system that assists private households in making efficient energy consumption decisions. Instead of providing disaggregated data, the envisioned system automatically calculates the monetary savings from replacing an appliance or by changing the operational behavior of an appliance. The information provided is personalized with respect to appliance use and also comprises information from external databases. A prototype is implemented and evaluated in a use case with white goods household appliances. The study concludes with directions for further interactivity improvements and research into the structures of an openly shared appliance database.
