Abstract [en]

Research has shown that microenterprises have ability to survive and grow with the support of portals that include eCcommerce. However, almost no research has demonstrated how it’s done and what support microenterprises want. Results of our study shows that the portals have to be improved to support the use of advanced ICT applications, make it usable to use, and give more time for core business for the participating microenterprises. We have seen that portals have to solve problem with the technical solution and the process of payment. The network building activities in the portals do not happen in such extent that we have expected based on previous research. If portals will get businesses to grow in microenterprises, we propose that in addition to providing access to advanced ICT applications need to climbs one step higher in the DTI ladder and create more of eCommerce to increase sales in a greater market. We also propose that portals which support cooperation between microenterprises in rural areas from different branches have the best chances to succeed in the future.

Abstract [en]

Research has shown that small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are rapidly adopting the e-commerce. However, there is nearly no research into how microenterprises are adopting eCommerce. Present paper focus on microenterprise adaption of eCommerce in terms of barriers in relation to already known research on SMEs. A case study, carried out by 12 microenterprises to find out barriers to adapt eCommerce had been done. The empirical results show that the microenterprises share most of the barriers to adapt the eCommerce with studies of SMEs, but also reveal additional factors affecting adaptation option of eCommerce; supplier agreement, communication and customer strategy. Conclusions are that microenterprises need additional support and communication and customer strategy to adapt eCommerce, depending of their requirement and needs of eCommerce.

Abstract [en]

Varied types of Visual Display Unit (VDU) are used in modern process control rooms. The main purpose of present study is to identify and find solutions to usability problems of VDU user interface in process control room. The usability evaluation methods were heuristic evaluation, usability test, and SUMI questionnaire. Fifteen operators participated in the study. The main result from the usability test were that the time to solve the task depends on the number of false clicks and commands, and participants experienced that user interface doesn't support in an efficient manner, too many and difficult steps must be performed. To improve the user interface of VDU we have created number of guidelines; for example; create groups of the fields, buttons, text, place the buttons in functionally way, enable the user to open multiple windows, drag and drop is a dynamic operation.

Abstract [en]

The objective of present paper is to describe the motivations that underlie the choices made by inventors in the development of their technologies. These classifications can help managers of innovation programs direct sparse resources to inventors with the greatest probability of commercial success. The categorisation motivation to go from idea to innovation and commercialisation of new technologies is presented for inventors for the small business in rural area of Sweden. The main results showed least eight different inventor motivations.

Abstract [en]

Social networking services have become increasingly widespread and, together with GPS equipped with mobile phones give citizens the opportunity to create new innovative types of social networks. The service is evolving, technology-centric to positioning using GPS and Google Maps Web service should also identify existing services interfaces are analysed, and be associated with basic functions of social networks to create a new innovative service. The purpose of this work is to illustrate the usercentred interaction design for mobile phones. Research design includes user requirement analysis, prototype development and usability evaluation. The results from usability evaluation in a simulated PC-based environment, support the user tasks in an efficient manner, one can work efficiently and feels that the system is sufficiently adapted to users' needs.
