Vilnius : Mykolo Romerio universitetas, 2014, [Nr.] 4(1)., p. 168-178Research limitations – although the paper has successfully demonstrated that IoT provides vast amounts of data for people to process and create knowledge, this could be considered only as an initial phase in studying the field. IoT and its intelligent outcomes need more investigation in terms of real life case studies and industry reviews in order to create valid definitions, models and future guidelines. Practical implications – this study provides an exciting opportunity to advance our knowledge on Internet of Things and could be used as theoretical background for further analysis of emergence of collective intelligence in interactive networks of people and things. Value – to date there has been little research summarising scientific efforts in the field of IoT. This paper provides a general overview of the knowledge on IoT and could be used as guidelines for further research.
2 Measuring and managing value co-creation process: overview of existing theoretical modelsPublication[Vertės kūrimo kartu su vartotojais proceso matavimas ir valdymas: teorinių modelių apžvalga]research articleSocialinės technologijos : mokslo darbai = Social technologies : research papers [Elektroninis išteklius]. Vilnius : Mykolo Romerio universitetas, 2012, 2013, [Nr.] 3(1)., p. 115-129Research limitations/implications. The limitations of this work as a literature review lies in its nature – the complete reliance on previously published research papers and the availability of these studies. For a deeper understanding of co-creation management and for developing models that can be used in real-life organizations, a broader theoretical, as well as empirical, research is necessary. Practical implications. Analysis of the literature revealed limited existence of conceptual and, even more importantly, empirically tested models for managing co-creation. With importance of rising customers input, it is crucial to find ways of managing co-creation. This article can be considered as an initial phase into building conceptual model for measuring co-creation Originality/Value. Even though co-creation of value with customers is a widely discussed topic in scientific world, little attempt has been made to find means for organizations to influence and manage customer’s involvement. This work aims at reviewing existing models in order to present empirically tested model based on past research. 9 5 Theoretical insights for developing the concept of social technologiesPublication[Koncepcijos „Socialinės technologijos“ vystymo teorinės įžvalgos]Social technologies continue to grow in popularity in society. Even though the term “social technology” is most commonly used to refer to new social media such as Twitter and Facebook, a redefinition of this concept based on the original definition is needed. Nowadays the concept of “social technology” has several aspects, which destabilize the dominant image of technology. It emphasizes the social sciences and the humanities as shapers of society, reconsiders the strength of “soft technologies.” The aim of this paper is to provide rich insight into the concept of social technologies’ and to develop the meaning of social technologies in information and knowledge society by analysing new needs and application forms of social technologies. 1 The application of crowd sourcing in educational activitiesPublication[Minios išteklių naudojimas švietime]research articleSocialinės technologijos : mokslo darbai = Social technologies : research papers [Elektroninis išteklius]. Vilnius : Mykolo Romerio universitetas, 2012, [Nr.] 2(1)., p. 67-76Research limitations/implications—The model presented here is a conceptual model and needs to be validated empirically. Practical implications—For practical purposes, the variables proposed in the model would provide a more comprehensive framework for the assessment of crowdsourcing use in education activities and work as a guide for crowdsourcing strategies. Originality/Value—Although the relevant literature consists of many partial and indirect insights and indications in the direction as conceived by the model, the full model as such is original. The authors’ primary contribution is in perceiving the holistic picture of the research subject.
