Users of business intelligence systems

Users are pivotal to the impacts generated from systems. Based on their level of capability and motivation, different outcomes can result.However, users of systems are just one part of the organization that can influence how systems are used. There are characteristics inherent in the organization itself and interactions between users that can result in different types of use.While studies have provided some insights into each of these three aspects in isolation seldom are they investigated together.We argue that a combined …

Business intelligence use

Traditionally, systems have been designed to support data entry functionalities. However, these data entry functionalities are increasingly being automated with greater emphasis placed on how to make informed decisions on the insights provided by these systems.This resulted in the emergence of business intelligence systems.Yet, these systems are becoming more sophisticated. They've gone from providing insights that were questioned by others to providing actionable guidance that's being largely unquestioned.Thus, more is needed to understand how these systems should be best leveraged. …

Reimagining Aged-care Furniture: A cradle to cradle approach through mass customisation

Reimagining Aged-care Furniture: A cradle to cradle approach through mass customisationAdvancements in robotic manufacturing processes present new opportunities for the realisation of aged care furniture, but require research in design and fabrication, end-user input, product lifecycle management and materials research. Addressing IFE’s Centre for a Waste Free World, this project aims to pilot a cradle to cradle approach to reimagine aged care furniture by creating a user-centered design to fabrication workflow in collaboration with industry partners Healthcraft Furniture, UAP, and …

Uses of exosomes as therapeutic delivery systems

Exosomes are small (40-120 nm), stable, lipid bilayer nanovesicles identified in biological fluids (e.g. in milk, blood, urine and saliva). They contain a diverse array of signalling molecules, including mRNA, microRNA (miR), proteins, lipids and membrane receptors, and they interact with target cells via multiple pathways. The cargo of circulating exosomes can be indicative of a specific tissue’s health status, granting the capacity for use of exosomes as a tool for disease diagnosis. Moreover, they have many of the features …

Chatbots for service delivery and co-creation: a study from the user's perspective

Chatbots, also known as digital customer service agents or virtual assistants, are poised to transform delivery and co-creation of customer service over the next few years.However, there are still many challenges, such as technological limitations and user's perception of value, that affect how customers use chatbots.We want to know:why do many customer not want to use chatbots?what do customers really think about using chatbots in a service delivery and co-creation context? …
