In a global and technology society, new technologies often represent an exclusion factor for the elderly population, unlike what happens with the digital natives. By contrast, young people today are fluent in the language of the new digital technologies. Information Technologies and Communication (ICT) can be key elements to bring different generations and promote the strengthening of family ties and sharing experiences. In this context, TINA project (Information Technology for Grandparents and Grandchildren) whose main aim is to promote family cohesion between grandchildren and grandparents through the ICT including through the Internet. It presents a pilot experiment involving two groups of grandparents and grandchildren in the district of Bragança, Portugal, in 2010. Apart from living promoted by the ICT, participants were trained in basic ICT skills and participated in workshops on the use of communication/interaction technologies between grandparents and grandchildren. The project culminated with the completion of a contest based on webquests before the Grandparents day.

This paper presents the preliminary results of an academic research about implementation of an Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) process conducted in 2012 in a Portuguese public organization named Culture, Tourism and Transport Regional Department of Madeira Autonomous Region. During the process we encountered resistance against ITIL and adversity to change. It is also true that other factors occurred in this project as the change of economic conditions or constrained resources. With this study we can conclude that ITIL is useful for increasing the overall quality of IT services, reduced costs, improved customer satisfaction, improved productivity and delivery, but we found that particularly in the public sector there is a natural resistance to change. This resistance is the most important issue for the deployment of ITIL practices in public sector because the formal and bureaucratic processes are settled in the culture of organizations.

A Governança da Tecnologia da Informação tem atraído interesse crescente nas organizações e no meio acadêmico, refletindo a importância e a evolução da Tecnologia da Informação na sociedade moderna. Inspirada na Governança Corporativa, a Governança da Tecnologia da Informação relaciona-se com a qualidade das decisões e ambiciona assegurar que as expectativas para a Tecnologia da Informação sejam realizadas, viabilizando a medição do desempenho, a gestão dos recursos e o controle dos riscos. Frequentemente (e não adequadamente), a Governança da Tecnologia da Informação é considerada como um tipo especial de gestão, e alguns dos modelos conhecidos como referência para a Governança da Tecnologia da Informação são dedicados a aspectos operacionais. A Governança da Tecnologia da Informação extrapola modelos de referência ou estilos de gerenciamento e está relacionada com os assuntos mais estratégicos. Motivado pelas lacunas na delimitação dos escopos e das fronteiras entre a Governança e a Gestão da Tecnologia da Informação, este trabalho investiga os elementos diferenciadores entre estes temas. São analisadas as definições, os escopos e os modelos teóricos da Governança da Tecnologia da Informação. Alicerçada na revisão da literatura...

The growing availability of continuous data from medical devices in diabetes management makes it crucial to define novel information technology architectures for efficient data storage, data transmission, and data visualization. The new paradigm of care demands the sharing of information in interoperable systems as the only way to support patient care in a continuum of care scenario. The technological platforms should support all the services required by the actors involved in the care process, located in different scenarios and managing diverse information for different purposes. This article presents basic criteria for defining flexible and adaptive architectures that are capable of interoperating with external systems, and integrating medical devices and decision support tools to extract all the relevant knowledge to support diabetes care.

Current computerized reminder and decision support systems intended to improve diabetes care have had a limited effect on clinical outcomes. Increasing pressures on health care networks to meet standards of diabetes care have created an environment where information technology systems for diabetes management are often created under duress, appended to existing clinical systems, and poorly integrated into the existing workflow. After defining the components of diabetes disease management, the authors present an eight-step conceptual framework to guide the development of more effective diabetes information technology systems for translating clinical information into clinical action.

Latinos have higher rates of diabetes and diabetes-related complications compared to non-Latinos. Clinical diabetes self-management tools that rely on innovative health information technology (HIT) may not be widely used by Latinos, particularly those that have low literacy or numeracy, low income, and/or limited English proficiency. Prior work has shown that tailored diabetes self-management educational interventions are feasible and effective in improving diabetes knowledge and physiological measures among Latinos, especially those interventions that utilize tailored coaching and navigator programs. In this article, we discuss the role of HIT for diabetes management in Latinos and describe a novel “eNavigator” role that we are developing to increase HIT adoption and thereby reduce health care disparities.

There has been a lot of research addressing the relationship between Information Technology (IT) investments and productivity. Most of the work has been based on firm-level metrics such as total IT investment. We present what we believe is one of the first attempts to create a systematic methodology to assess the impact of IT in business process performance metrics. Our approach builds on the MIT Process Handbook as a basis to both guide the analysis and capture the resulting knowledge for future use. We will present preliminary results on how to use such methodology to analyze the impact of a given IT technology, namely RFID (radio frequency identification devices), in performance metrics of a consumer packaged goods company. We are interested in looking at how IT may impact performance metrics such as productivity, cost and value. We believe our methodology can help CPG companies prioritize their investments. We show results on how the specialization features of the MIT Process Handbook can incorporate performance metrics to help assess such investments in RFID

The healthcare industry is expanding swiftly and total healthcare expenditures are expected to reach 18% of GDP by 2008. However there exist steep variances in quality of care and high incidences of medical error. This has given impetus to efforts at progressively evolving the healthcare delivery system. The role of information technology (IT) is seen as being central to cost reduction and quality improvement of healthcare delivery. Furthermore, efficiency gains will realize approximately 20% in cost reductions. However, there are significant challenges associated with widespread adoption of IT by healthcare providers. Despite the existence of vendor and technology maturity, implementation rates for clinical patient record systems were only 35% in 2006. This study addresses the problem of low IT adoption in hospitals through a three pronged analysis methodology. A Clockspeed analysis has revealed a dichotomy between the maturity levels of technology and vendors on the one hand and delivery processes on the other. This has resulted in lower business value being realized from IT investments by healthcare providers.; (cont.) To address the concern of low business value realization from IT investments, a workflow and Social Networking Analysis was conducted on the surgery patient flow process of a prominent Boston area hospital. It was demonstrated that productivity gains could be achieved through redesign of social networks at the workplace and by inculcating an enterprise-wide process orientation. This would generate greater business value from existing IT investments and thereby impact the rate of IT adoption. Furthermore...

Several organizations have faced challenges in adopting the usage of information technology in an environment-friendly and a sustainable supply chain network. Information technology plays a crucial role in ensuing success of Green supply chain networks. We propose that the Green supply chain management information flow is impacted by both IT governance and Green infrastructure components which in turn are impacted by corporate sustainability. This paper explores various drivers of information technology that enable Green supply chain management and presents a conceptual taxonomy of information technology for sustainability.

In the past decades, China's military modernization and economy fast development has increasingly attracted international attention, especially the United States. In addition, the PLA has begun to study the revolution in the military affairs (RMA) by focusing on asymmetric warfare capabilities under high-tech conditions. China definitely believes that asymmetric warfare operations have the advantage of creating a more smart attack style to avoid directly facing U.S. powerful military strength. In summary, asymmetric warfare operations are considered by the PLA as a kind of warfare that combined both the thinking of China's classic military strategist Sun Tzu "using the inferior to defeat the superior" and the demand of the modern information technology such as IW applications. In face of China's development of asymmetric warfare capabilities, the United States must deeply think about how to deal with the threat from China's asymmetric warfare operations, which is gradually becoming the superpower in the world.

Information technology (IT) is crucial to the Navy's success. The Naval Postgraduate School must contribute to that success. One of my high priority goals for the School is to provide a model for the Navy in the use of information technology to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the entire organization. We have a long way to go to reach that goal, requiring us to manage some significant changes in the way we carry out our teaching, research, and administrative activities.

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; Information ethics is a relatively new field of study that aims to identify and to analyze the impact technology has on society, personal values, and the application of ethics in cyberspace. The Department of the Navy (DoN) continues to experience incidents of unethical behavior by personnel using government computers and accessing the Internet from within government networks. These incidents will continue and grow in number as the Navy and Marine Corps' dependence upon information technology (IT) increases. There are circumstances requiring ethical decision making encountered by naval personnel that are not sufficiently addressed by policy. Many of these situations do not neatly translate from ordinary experience to the IT world. These topics include the right to privacy, the protection of intellectual property, the collection and stewardship of information, and cyber crime. To address this problem, training materials on a CDROM have been created with the objective of giving DoN personnel a better understanding of the ethical responsibilities that are required when using IT. The training materials provide decision making tools to better prepare naval personnel when facing ethical dilemmas in the IT context.; Major...

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; As the lead organization for all United States Naval Surface Forces, Commander Naval Surface Forces (CNSF) is committed to providing operational commanders with well-trained, highly effective, and technologically relevant surface forces. Aligning itself with the Department of the Navy's Information Management (IM) and Information Technology (IT) strategic mission objectives, CNSF is dedicated to delivering secure, interoperable, and integrated IM/IT capabilities to the Marine and Sailor in support of war-fighting missions. CNSF utilizes several IT systems and applications to enhance information collection, sharing, and storage including the Surface Forces (SURFOR) Web, Training and Operational Readiness Informational Services (TORIS), and Continuous Monitoring Program (CMP). In lieu of the Navy's attempt to cut operational budget costs and become more financially responsible, CNSF is discussing options to increase its efficiency in IT contract management. CNSF-one organization with two Type Commander (TYCOM) staffs and support organizations-must institute a strategic approach for the management of IT to maximize efficiency throughout the organization. This thesis will focus on identifying strategic approaches to IT management...

Approved for public release, distribution is unlimited; This research examines a process to estimate the value of graduate education. Moreover, it demonstrates an approach to measuring the use of graduate education within organizations. Marine Corps officers who graduated from the Naval Postgraduate School's Information System Technology curriculum are studied. The study used a web-based survey for data collection and a Knowledge Value Added method to objectively estimate the value of education topics across different Marine Corps processes. Results indicate that the Information System Technology curriculum is designed and implemented to successfully meet sponsor requirements. It reveals that the education is highly valued and frequently used in post graduation billets. The most valued aspect of the education is theoretical knowledge. However, the research showed how practical information technology skills and social relationships that developed during the resident education were also highly valued and frequently used. The results go on to show that personal interest in education topics often corresponded to greater perceived value. Lastly, a proof of concept demonstrates a method to measure and compare the use on graduate education in subsequent organizational processes. The Knowledge Value Added method provides the ability to compare education use between different topics...

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; Organizations incorporate changes in technological capabilities and patterns of work slowly and with great difficulty. Similar to the introduction of electricity in the early 1990s, information technology's benefits were not realized until competition forced private companies to adapt their organizational structure and operating practices to take advantage of new capabilities. They sought to change the very nature of work, not just do work faster. A decreasing defense budget forces the Navy to face many of the common problems overcome earlier in the world of private industry. This initial exploration identifies potential opportunities to be gained by taking a business perspective in the integration of information technology in the evolution to smaller, more capable, less manpower-intensive surface ships; http://archive.org/details/smoothersailinga00love; Lieutenant, United States Navy

In this course, we will explore how information technology is reshaping the U.S. labor market: the mix of occupations, the skills required to perform an occupation, the way work is organized, labor productivity, wage levels and wage inequality. We begin from the perspective the brain is a wonderful information-processing instrument, but in those cases where a computer and the brain can process information in roughly the same way the computer can often do it at lower cost. This fact leads to a pair of crosscutting market forces: Information technology is opening up many new opportunities through its complementarity with some human skills. In both existing and new jobs, information technology is replacing human labor in certain tasks by substituting for other human skills. We will explore the current limits on computer's ability to substitute for human skills, discuss the human skills that computers complement,and assess the net effect of these forces on the labor market.

Information technology governance is a process by which organizations align their information technology operations and services with their performance goals and strategic objectives and assess the results. The financial sector has benefited greatly from the development of information technology, primarily in bank automation. There are few research works aimed at describing information technology governance, and there are even fewer in the financial sector. This paper is aimed at measuring information technology governance in financial institutions using the methodology proposed by Weill and Ross (2004). The sample consisted of sixty professionals from financial institutions operating in Brazil. The average performance score was approximately 79.6, showing that the organizations studied have not achieved maximum performance (100), although many are very close to it. This paper describes an original empirical study of Brazilian financial institutions concerning information technology management performance. The survey investigates not only the context of performance, but also the importance that the organization places on each item related to information technology governance aligned with business needs and goals.
