  • Eliciting and Modeling Business Process Stories
    • Authors: David Simões; Pedro Antunes; Luis Carriço
      Pages: 115 - 132
      Abstract: Most business process modeling tools used today encourage the rendition of lean, prescribed and clearly coordinated activities, which often clash with far more intricate business realities. This paper evaluates an alternative approach that adopts concepts from storytelling and sense-making theories to elicit process stories. The viability of this approach is tested in a case study involving sixteen individuals from the same organization who tell their personal views about a business process, thus gathering a total of twenty process stories. The obtained results suggest that process stories may increase the meaningfulness, contextualization and overall richness of process models.

  • Next-Purchase Prediction Using Projections of Discounted Purchasing
           Sequences
    • Authors: Katerina Shapoval; Thomas Setzer
      Pages: 151 - 166
      Abstract: A primary task of customer relationship management (CRM) is the transformation of customer data into business value related to customer binding and development, for instance, by offering additional products that meet customers’ needs. A customer’s purchasing history (or sequence) is a promising feature to better anticipate customer needs, such as the next purchase intention. To operationalize this feature, sequences need to be aggregated before applying supervised prediction. That is because numerous sequences might exist with little support (number of observations) per unique sequence, discouraging inferences from past observations at the individual sequence level. In this paper the authors propose mechanisms to aggregate sequences to generalized purchasing types. The mechanisms group sequences according to their similarity but allow for giving higher weights to more recent purchases. The observed conversion rate per purchasing type can then be used to predict a customer’s probability of a next purchase and target the customers most prone to purchasing a particular product. The bias–variance trade-off when applying the models to target customers with respect to the lift criterion are discussed. The mechanisms are tested on empirical data in the realm of cross-selling campaigns. Results show that the expected bias–variance behavior well predicts the lift achieved with the mechanisms. Results also show a superior performance of the proposed methods compared to commonly used segmentation-based approaches, different similarity measures, and popular class predictors. While the authors tested the approaches for CRM campaigns, their parameterization can be adjusted to operationalize sequential features of high cardinality also in other domains or business functions.

  • OT Modeling: The Enterprise Beyond IT
    • Authors: Paola Lara; Mario Sánchez; Jorge Villalobos
      Abstract: Enterprises are composed of an enormous number of elements (e.g., organizational units, human resources, production processes, and IT systems) typically classified in the business or the IT domain. However, some crucial elements do not belong in either group: they are directly responsible for producing and delivering the company’s goods and services and include all the elements that support day to day operations. Collectively, these elements have been called operational technologies (OT) and have been conspicuously excluded from enterprise modeling (EM) approaches which traditionally have focused on the business and IT dimensions. Evidence of this is the absence of OT elements in languages and metamodels for EM. This is in line with the historical division between IT and OT in organizations that has led to information silos, independent teams, and disparate technologies that only recently have started to be reconciled. Considering that OT is critical to most productive organizations, and the benefits that EM brings to its understanding and improvement, it makes sense to expand EM to include OT. For that purpose, this paper proposes an extension to ArchiMate 3.0 which includes crucial OT elements. On top of that, this paper also proposes an approach to further expand ArchiMate to address specific industries where more specific OT elements are required. This is illustrated in the paper with an extension for the Oil and Gas case that was validated with experts belonging to five companies in the sector.

  • Closing the Gap Between Experts and Novices Using Analytics-as-a-Service:
           An Experimental Study
    • Authors: Jasmien Lismont; Tine Van Calster; María Óskarsdóttir; Seppe vanden Broucke; Bart Baesens; Wilfried Lemahieu; Jan Vanthienen
      Abstract: Generating insights and value from data has become an important asset for organizations. At the same time, the need for experts in analytics is increasing and the number of analytics applications is growing. Recently, a new trend has emerged, i.e. analytics-as-a-service platforms, that makes it easier to apply analytics both for novice and expert users. In this study, the authors approach these new services by conducting a full-factorial experiment where both inexperienced and experienced users take on an analytics task with an analytics-as-a-service technology. The research proves that although experts in analytics still significantly outperform novices, these web-based platforms do offer an advantage to inexperienced users. Furthermore, the authors find that analytics-as-a-service does not offer the same benefits across different analytics tasks. That is, they observe better performance for supervised analytics tasks. Moreover, this study indicates that there are significant differences between novices. The most important distinction lies in the approach they take on the task. Novices who follow a more complex, although structured, workflow behave more similarly to experts and, thus, also perform better. The findings can aid managers in their hiring and training strategy with regards to both business users and data scientists. Moreover, it can guide managers in the development of an enterprise-wide analytics culture. Finally, the results can inform vendors about the design and development of these platforms.

  • Mathematical Optimization and Algorithms for Offshore Wind Farm Design: An
           Overview
    • Authors: Martina Fischetti; David Pisinger
      Abstract: Wind energy is a fast evolving field that has attracted a lot of attention and investments in the last decades. Being an increasingly competitive market, it is very important to minimize establishment costs and increase production profits already at the design phase of new wind parks. This paper is based on many years of collaboration with Vattenfall, a leading wind energy developer and wind power operator, and aims at giving an overview of the experience of using Mathematical Optimization in the field. The paper illustrates some of the practical needs defined by energy companies, showing how optimization can help the designers to increase production and reduce costs in the design of offshore parks. In particular, the study gives an overview of the individual phases of designing an offshore wind farm, and some of the optimization problems involved. Finally it goes in depth with three of the most important optimization tasks: turbine location, electrical cable routing and foundation optimization. The paper is concluded with a discussion of future challenges.

  • Generating Artificial Data for Empirical Analysis of Control-flow
           Discovery Algorithms
    • Authors: Toon Jouck; Benoît Depaire
      Abstract: Within the process mining domain, research on comparing control-flow (CF) discovery techniques has gained importance. A crucial building block of empirical analysis of CF discovery techniques is obtaining the appropriate evaluation data. Currently, there is no answer to the question of how to collect such evaluation data. The paper introduces a methodology for generating artificial event data (GED) and an implementation called the Process Tree and Log Generator. The GED methodology and its implementation provide users with full control over the characteristics of the generated event data and an integration within the ProM framework. Unlike existing approaches, there is no tradeoff between including long-term dependencies and soundness of the process. The contributions of the paper provide a solution for a necessary step in the empirical analysis of CF discovery algorithms.

  • Smart Cities: A Review and Analysis of Stakeholders’ Literature
    • Authors: Mauricio Marrone; Mara Hammerle
      Abstract: Recent literature on smart cities stresses the role of digitization in tackling urban issues such as environmental degradation and poverty. The wicked nature of these issues gives rise to the need to understand the diverse perspectives of relevant stakeholder groups on smart cities. However, existing research that compares these perspectives tends to exclude the beliefs of those living in smart cities. Integrating these beliefs in smart city discourses is paramount to increase the likelihood that these systems will be accepted. With the view that the literature consumed by an audience will influence that audience’s perspectives, the main aim of this study is to compare and contrast the pertinent topics found in various types of literature on smart cities. Using an innovative approach of literature comparison, based on a semantic entity annotator and keyword analysis, this article extracts and compares topics in news media (for citizens), trade publications (for businesses), academic articles (for research organizations) and government reports (for governments). The findings suggest that citizens tend to be under-represented in discussions on smart cities and highlight those topics considered relevant only by smart city citizens. Increased understanding in this area can help guide discussions and policies that are relevant for all stakeholders.

  • Do Not Forget About Smart Towns
    • Authors: Sabiölla Hosseini; Leonhard Frank; Gilbert Fridgen; Sebastian Heger
      Abstract: To date, research on smart cities has primarily focused on urban congested areas. As this paper points out, it is becoming ever more important to look at intermediate and thinly populated regions like towns and rural areas as arenas for digital innovation. By following a multi-phase research process, the authors examine towns’ highly individual needs in an exploratory way, derive key aspects from recent literature that can serve to mitigate or solve their problems, and present an open innovation process by way of integrating local context factors, local stakeholders, and suitable information and communication technology solutions. The objective is to develop a first digital innovation approach in a field that has so far been scarcely considered. The authors conduct a case study, which demonstrates the applicability and effectiveness of their innovation approach in a small town in southern Germany and derive first important lessons learned. Thereby, the concept of an innovation ecosystem reveals a promising solution to face the challenges of the investigated town.

  • Sharing Yet Caring
    • Authors: Björn Hildebrandt; Andre Hanelt; Sebastian Firk
      Abstract: The quest for creating smart and sustainable cities entails various substantial challenges, such as environmental degradation and a shortage of space. To negotiate these hurdles, innovative approaches must be implemented. A key aspect in this regard is the shared use of resources via forms of access-based consumption. Owing to advances in the digitalization of contemporary societies, these concepts have recently attracted both consumer and scholarly interest. However, the digitally enabled separation of ownership and use brings along the risk of moral hazard by consumers using resources in careless or wasteful ways, which is detrimental to the sustainability of the overall system. In this study, the authors conceptualize and empirically investigate how these adverse effects can be mitigated by applying the potentials of connectivity and digital data to enable users to participate economically while acting favorably from a collective perspective. The results of the quasi-experimental research design, situated in a carsharing context and comprising data records of 2,983 bookings, indicate that this form of value co-capturing with consumers can significantly motivate users to alter their behavior. From these findings, the authors derive important implications for research on the sustainability of digital business eco-systems in the specific context of smart cities.

  • Exploring the Motives of Citizen Reporting Engagement: Self-Concern and
           Other-Orientation
    • Authors: Gabriel Abu-Tayeh; Oliver Neumann; Matthias Stuermer
      Abstract: In smart city contexts, voluntary citizen reporting can be a particularly valuable source of information for local authorities. A key question in this regard is what motivates citizens to contribute their data. Drawing on motivation research in social psychology, the paper examines the question of whether self-concern or other-orientation is a stronger driver of citizen reporting engagement. To test their hypotheses, the authors rely on a sample of users from the mobile application “Zurich as good as new” in Switzerland, which enables citizens to report damages in and other issues with the city’s infrastructure. Data was collected from two different sources: motivation was assessed in an online user survey (n = 650), whereas citizen reporting engagement was measured by the number of reports per user from real platform-use data. The analysis was carried out using negative binomial regression. The findings suggest that both self-concern and other-orientation are significant drivers of citizen reporting engagement, although the effect of self-concern appears to be stronger in comparison. As such, this study contributes to a better understanding of what motivates citizens to participate in citizen reporting platforms, which are a cornerstone application in many smart cities.
