  • Practice-related research methods as part of scientific information systems research 

    Halonen, Raija (Indian Journal of Science and Technology, 2009)
    This article discusses the importance of research methods in scientific information systems research. To limit the approach, the emphasis is laid on practice-driven research methods. While the nature of `research¿ is ...
  • Pragmatic approach in IS projects grounded on recognised frameworks 

    Halonen, Raija (2008)
    This paper stands for IS projects that are carried out practionally, using action-oriented approach and by grounding on recognised frameworks to serve as a foundation for better IS research. We introduce two different IS ...
  • Predicting the elastic properties of selective laser sintered PCL/b-TCP bone scaffold materials using computational modelling. 

    Doyle, Heather; Lohfeld, Stefan; McHugh, Peter E. (Springer, 2013)
    Abstract This study assesses the ability of finite element (FE) models to capture the mechanical behaviour of sintered orthopaedic scaffold materials. Individual scaffold struts were fabricated from a 50:50 wt% ...
  • Preferential tendon stem cell response to growth factor supplementation. 

    Holladay, Carolyn; Abbah, Sunny-Akogwu (Wiley, 2014)
    Tendon injuries are increasingly prevalent around the world, accounting for more than 100 000 new clinical cases/year in the USA alone. Cell-based therapies have been proposed as a therapeutic strategy, with recent data ...
  • Presenting data for team-based decision-making in agile information systems projects 

    Halonen, Raija; Acton, Thomas; Conboy, Kieran (2009)
    Although there are a number of purported benefits of agile systems development methods over traditional forms, many in the Information Systems Development (ISD) community highlight the difficulties that the dynamic, turbulent ...
  • Presenting the un-presentable: how to display data for decision making 

    Acton, Thomas; van der Heijden, Hans; Golden, William (2008-10-20)
    A concern with computer systems is how best to present onscreen data. This can be particularly problematic for large quantities of data and in contexts of organisational and managerial decision making. Another concern ...
  • Previewing Semantic Web Pipes 

    Phuoc, Danh Le; Polleres, Axel; Samwald, Matthias; Tummarello, Giovanni (Springer, 2008)
    In this demo we present a first implementation of Semantic Web Pipes, a powerful tool to build RDF-based mashups. Semantic Web pipes are defined in XML and when executed they fetch RDF graphs on the Web, operate on them, ...
  • Process Mediation Based on Triple Space Computing 

    Zhou, ZhangBing; Sapkota, Brahmananda; Cimpian, Emilia; Foxvog, Doug; Vasiliu, Laurentiu; Hauswirth, Manfred (Springer, 2008)
    Web services are inherently heterogeneous at both data and behavioral levels because of the nature of the Web, which is the main obstacle to the usability of Web services. The heterogeneity at a behavioral level is generally ...
  • Processing ontology alignments with SPARQL 

    Polleres, Axel (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
  • Processing ontology alignments with SPARQL 

    Polleres, Axel (IEEE, 2008)
    Solving problems raised by heterogeneous ontologies can be achieved by matching the ontologies and processing the resulting alignments. This is typical of data mediation in which the data must be translated from one ...
  • Produce and Consume Linked Data with Drupal! 

    Corlosquet, Stéphane; Delbru, Renaud; Polleres, Axel; Decker, Stefan (Springer, 2009)
    Currently a large number of Web sites are driven by Content Management Systems (CMS) which manage textual and multimedia content but also - inherently - carry valuable information about a site¿s structure and content ...
  • Project failure en masse: a study of loose budgetary control in ISD projects 

    Conboy, Kieran (Palgrave Macmillan, 2010-05-18)
    This paper investigates the tightness of budgetary control over projects in a large systems development multinational. This represents a case of extreme information systems development (ISD) failure en masse, where all but ...
  • Project Management in Information Systems Development 

    Lohan, Garry; Lang, Michael; Conboy, Kieran (2010)
  • Project Management in Information Systems Development 

    Lohan, Garry (2009)
    Although there is a growing body of literature concerned with the adoption of agile software development within a large organization, there is still very little in terms of empirical research of practice. This research ...

    The purpose of this study is to examine the drivers behind the certification of project managers in Irish organisations, to identify the benefits and drawbacks of project management certification and to determine whether ...
  • Proposing a formalised model for mindful information systems offshoring 

    Costello, Gabriel; Donnelan, Brian (Springer Verlag, 2009-10-26)
    The central thesis of this paper is that Mathematical Economics can provide a novel approach to the examination of offshoring business decisions and provide an impetus for future research in the area. A growing body of ...
  • Protect Your RDF Data! 

    Kirrane, Sabrina; Lopes, Nuno; Mileo, Alessandra; Decker, Stefan (2012)
