ABSTRACT In today's rapidly changing and highly competitive operating contexts, businesses are increasingly seeking cooperative, long-term inter-organizational relationships. Inter-organizational systems (IOS) are major enablers of inter-organizational cooperation. Drawing upon transaction costs economics theory and resource-based view as the theoretical frames, this study presents electronic cooperation value model, suggesting electronic cooperation as an intermediary/mediator between IOS resources and competitive advantage. In this study, technological and human IOS resources are investigated as predictors of electronic cooperation. Examined are four key dimensions of electronic cooperation including information sharing, action simplicity, joint action, and continuity. Electronic cooperation value model would be useful to both research and practice since the model explains how and why IOS resources contribute to electronic cooperation, which in turn, leads to competitive advantage.

The objective of the study is to explore the impact of IOS appropriation on supply chain collaboration and collaborative advantage. Reliable and valid instruments of these constructs were developed through rigorous empirical analysis including structured interviews, Q-sort, and a large-scale study. Data were collected through a Web survey of U.S. manufacturing firms in various industries. The path analytical results indicate that IOS appropriation strongly supports supply chain collaboration, which in turn affects collaborative advantage.

ABSTRACT There is a growing interest in leveraging Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) in domains such as home automation, automotive, mobile phones or e-Health. With the basic idea (supported in e.g. OSGi) that components provide services, it makes it possible to smoothly integrate the Internet of Things (IoT) with the Internet of Services (IoS). The paradigm of the IoS indeed offers interesting capabilities in e m f dy mici y d i e pe bi i y H weve i d m i h i v ve hi g (e.g. appliances), there is still a strong need for loose coupling and a proper separation between types and instances that are well-known in Component-Based approaches but that typical SOA fail to provide. This paper presents how we can still get the best of both worlds by augmenting SOA with a Component-Based approach. We illustrate our approach with a case study from the domain of home automation.

ABSTRACT Taking China's two successful IOS cases as study object, this paper investigated inter-firm business process transformation enabled by IOS from four aspects, namely, integration, transfer, elimination and creation of inter-firm business processes. This study argues that IOS must be seen as the enabler of organizational structure and business process changes rather than a mere implementation tool for existing organizations and processes inside enterprises and between enterprises. Enterprises should focus on their core capability, collaborate with each other with IOS and actively achieve inter-firm business process integration and innovation.

ABSTRACT At present, most of conventional education forms are becoming not being suitable for requirements of social progress and educational development and not being able to catch up with the changes of learning demand in time, thus computer networks have brought opportunities for it. However, in traditional web-based e-learning mode, system construction and maintenance are located in interior of educational institutions or enterprises, which results in a lot of problems existed, such as a lot of investment needed, but without capital gains to return, without development potential and staying power. Cloud computing that introduces efficient scale mechanism can let construction of e-learning system be entrusted to suppliers and provide a new mode for e-learning. In this paper, we introduced cloud computing to e-learning, built an e-learning cloud, and made an active research and exploration for it from the following aspects: its work mode, architecture, construction method, external interface with the business model, challenges and solutions etc. Our results suggest that the introduction of cloud computing into e-learning is feasible and it can greatly improve the efficiency of investment and the power of management, which can make e-learning system development into a virtuous circle and achieve a winwin situation for suppliers and customers.

ABSTRACT Over the Internet, e-Learning has speeded up the knowledge transfer without restrictions on time and space in recent years. In order to achieve the goal of knowledge sharing and reusing interactively, lots of available e-Learning standards have been adapted to complete this purpose. Normally, learning objects meeting these standards are sharable with other e-Learning platforms. Most e-Learning platforms, however, are unable to share learning objects directly on the Internet. The characteristics of Cloud computing provide a promising infrastructure to compute and store resources as services. Hence, this paper introduces Cloud computing into an e-Learning platform to allow the integration of different eLearning standards to enhance interoperability of learning objects. By combining the characteristics of e-Learning and approach of Cloud computing, educators have not to re-construct learning objects to satisfy e-Learning environments developed from different e-Learning standards.

ABSTRACT Campus E-Learning system has become an effective complement to the modern teaching with its unique advantages, but at the same time educational institutions had to pay a huge price in building E-Learning system in the traditional network model. The cloud computing will be undoubtedly an effective way to reduce costs.

This paper not only introduces the Campus E-Learning system, analyzes the characteristics of cloud computing, but also combines them effectively. The relevant architecture and implementation mechanisms have been discussed aiming to provide an effective technical support to the construction of University information system.
