Novel Social Technologies’ Action Platform for Future Industrial Services Businesses Management
07/2007 — 01/2010. Project ended.
The project has successfully reached a collaboration agreement with 3 active project partners (Infonia Oy, Jyväskylä; Process Vision Oy, Helsinki/Jyväskylä; PR Rolls Oy, Jämsänkoski) and 1 passive partner (Firstbeat Technologies Ltd., Jyväskylä).
This project essentially fuses the two major developmental trends for future industrial enterprise reality: (a) exploitation of emerging Web 2.0 principles and practices and (b) strengthening of services businesses activities.
(Note: In compliance with the project partners developmental agendas, the primary application target and business value of the Action Platform has since been shifted from services businesses to organizational collaboration and knowledge management.)
- The SoTech Platform project receives funding from the Technology Industries of Finland Centennial Foundation (200'000€).
- It was launched in July 2007 and is designated to operate until the end of 2009 within the Agora Human Technology Research Center (User Psychology Laboratory) at the University of Jyväskylä.
- During this time it will administer about 40 researcher man months.
