    Dr. Theodor BorangiuUniversity Relations Coordinator IBM RomaniaProfessor at the University Politehnica of

    SSME (and Arts)

    ISSIP Call, April 10, 2013

  • New types of services: knowledge intensive, scientifically founded, IT-based, described by metrics, KPI

    T-shaped education for service innovation [expert thinking (deep) + complex communication (broad)]

    Foundations for a new science: Service Science

    Innovation: Service system & service networks modelling, design and management

    IT support for service industry


    Skills development & research in services1. Create an open framework for learning in higher education, in the domain of

    service science, design and management [Master, Compact, Continuous education]

    2. Promote innovation in the service industry, based on SS-KE: a shared knowledge environment, ontology-based & available in a Cloud, with virtualized resources, accessible as composite services, interconnecting public (universities) and private organizations (IT, service companies).

  • Project Title: Fostering innovation in services through open, continuous education (INSEED)Project Type: Sector Operational Program HR, Quality in Higher Education. Project Consortium: UPB (project coordinator), University Transilvania of Brasov, AES of

    Bucharest, University of Medicine and Pharmacy of BucharestStart, Dev., End: 2011, main dev. 2012 [Cloud infrastructure created], 2013, 5MEur

    Project Objectives:1.Develop an open, continuous education model in institutional frame to create and maintain

    long life skills to conceive, create, design, implement, operate and manage complex IT-based systems for services

    2.Implement and consolidate the 4-semester interdisciplinary Master Program in higher education: Service Engineering & Management [English, EU connected]; provides innovators in sector services: manufacturing, administration, supply chains & logistics, energy management, health care

    3.Develop a highly scalable, distributed cloud computing infrastructure for learning and research with virtualized resources accessed as services

    4.Create and consolidate an open, integrated collaboration space with companies: INSER@SPACE = eLearning + SS-KE

    The Context: INSEED a national projectfor HR development

    Transposes: The multilevel framework [service needs (requested) + service resources

    (capabilities) service competencies (to be provided)] for innovation; The roles: context of partnership in co-creating value through services

    (supplier, customer, competitor, authority); The principles and methodology of configuration, interconnecting, integration,

    exploration and innovation of services (people, technology, shared information, organizations) needed for services implementation [model-based]

    in sets of disciplines for curricular areas, associating :

    - the Service Resources level with: technologies (platforms/resources for service implementing, distribution resources/channels), shared information (service content, client data), and personnel (resource exploitation);

    - the Service Competencies level with the discipline set related to:organizations: horizontal competencies (staff and organizational management);partnership: horizontal competencies (supplier, partner, competitor, )provider: vertical competencies (support for services, execution, billing)

    - the Service Needs level: discipline set related to the customer (service availability, customization, customer/community contribution in service execution, cost & market analysis) and the authority ( supplier-customer relation settlement, SLA, IP).
