Open Data in Business Research
is a part of Business and Open Data stream
It is held on Thursday 20.9.2012 from 11:30 till 18:00
at HACK Cinema 1
Entrance with festival pass
Online registration form will be available soon.
Opening data archives for public use will fundamentally transform societies. We can already observe a number of new services and business models in many areas. The European Union sees the emergence of services based on the vast public data resources as one of the key drivers of innovation and growth. Open data-related initiatives open up a rich field of research that is still mostly unexplored.
Open Data in Business Research session will showcase contemporary research in this emerging field and address the challenges in the area.
The day will bring together researchers interested in open data in business and build an international research community around open data. The Open Data in Business research stream will include keynotes, presentations, a panel and discussion about accepted abstracts.

Session Chairs: Matti Rossi, Aalto University Business School & Juho Lindman, Hanken School of Economics.
Youngjin Yoo is Professor in Management Information Systems and Strategy at the Fox School of Business and School of Management at Temple University, where he is also Irwin L. Gross Research Fellow. He is a founder of Urban Apps & Maps Studios at Temple, a university-wide interdisciplinary program for digital urban start-ups. He research design, innovation, and evolution. He received more than $3 million in research grants. He was recognized as #1 researcher in the world for top ranked MIS journals in year 2010.
Dr George Kuk is an associate professor in strategy and information systems at Nottingham University Business School. His research interest is in the open and user innovation of online communities and platforms; and the social and economic impacts of ubiquitous computing in the digital economy. Primarily, he studies online behaviours including knowledge sharing and strategic interactions in open data, software, design and API. He is a co-investigator of Horizon (www.horizon.ac.uk) and CREATe (www.create.ac.uk) funded by UK research councils; and a principal investigator of two research in the wild projects involving open design with one of the largest UK-based retail outlets; and open mobile platforms in China. His publication has appeared in Management Science, Information Systems Journal, Journal of Strategic Information Systems, among others.
The social life of open data: Strong claims are made about the potential of opening government data to drive service innovation. Yet little is known about the detailed processes of how existing services are improved and new services are created out of new releases of public datasets, and the conditions for the transition from data release to service innovation. We argue the utility of open data is accrued through the creation of material complements with enhanced performativity transformed by collective social activities. In a multimethod study of the open data hackers in the UK we identified a series of interlocking processes involved in the conversion of public data into services of public value. We found that few of the ‘rapid prototypes’ developed through hack day events are maintained or sustained as service innovations beyond those events. Five material artifacts provided the value stack of complementarities: cleaned data available through APIs or bulk downloads, linkable data, shared source code and configuration, source code repositories, and web technologies. Our findings also suggest that only a few open datasets induce the process of change, and that initial contributions are driven by the use values but can only be sustained through an open innovative approach to induce further collaboration within a wider open data community.
Dr. Teemu Leinonen is a Associate Professor of New Media Design and Learning at the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture. His areas of interest and expertise include design for learning, computer supported collaborative learning, online cooperation, learning software design, educational planning and educational politics. As part of this work, he is developing open source learning tools for web and mobile environments and open content for education.
