• A case of using formal concept analysis in combination with emergent self organizing maps for detecting domestic violence

      Poelmans, Jonas; Elzinga, Paul; Viaene, Stijn; Dedene, Guido (+) (2009)
      This paper examines incremental financing decisions within high-growth businesses. A large longitudinal dataset, free of survivorship bias, to cover financing events of high-growth businesses for up to 8 years is analyzed. The empirical evidence shows that profitable businesses prefer to finance investments with retained earnings, even if they have unused debt capacity. External equity is particularly important for unprofitable businesses with high debt levels, limited cash flows, high risk of failure or significant investments in intangible assets. These findings are consistent with the extended pecking order theory controlling for constraints imposed by debt capacity. It suggests that new equity issues are particularly important to allow high-growth businesses to grow beyond their debt capacity.

    • Corporate IT transformation at Barco

      Viaene, Stijn; Isik, Öykü (2013)
      The case takes us back to 2009, a year of great turmoil and the start of a transformation journey for BARCO, a global visualisation solutions company. Stefaan Kindekens, newly appointed corporate CIO, is preparing the new IT strategy per request of the board of directors. At the heart of the proposal are the introduction of a new IT operating model and the replacement of the legacy systems landscape. The case allows for discussions about business and IT alignment, IT strategy, and IT governance.
    • Curbing domestic violence: instantiating C-K theory with formal concept analysis and emergent self-organizing maps. Intelligent Systems in Accounting, Finance & Management

      Poelmans, Jonas; Elzinga, Paul; Viaene, Stijn; Dedene, Guido (+) (2010)
      We propose a human-centred process for knowledge discovery from unstructured text that makes use of formal concept analysis and emergent self-organizing maps. The knowledge discovery process is conceptualized and interpreted as successive iterations through the concept-knowledge (C-K) theory design square. To illustrate its effectiveness, we report on a real-life case study of using the process at the Amsterdam-Amstelland police in the Netherlands aimed at distilling concepts to identify domestic violence from the unstructured text in actual police reports. The case study allows us to show how the process was not only able to uncover the nature of a phenomenon such as domestic violence, but also enabled analysts to identify many types of anomaly in the practice of policing. We will illustrate how the insights obtained from this exercise resulted in major improvements in the management of domestic violence cases.
    • Data scientists aren't domain experts

      Viaene, Stijn (2013)
      It will take a lot of conversation to make data science work. Data scientists can't do it on their own. Success in data science requires a multiskilled project team with data scientists and domain experts working closely together.
    • Degrowth and collaborative value creation: Reflections on concepts and technologies

      Hankammer, Stephan; Kleer, Robin (Elsevier, 2018)
      The concept of degrowth aims fundamentally at reducing material and energy throughput equitably, while questioning the desirability of further economic growth. In order to achieve this reduction of society’s throughput, radical changes in the ways goods and services are produced, distributed and used are required. In this think piece, concepts of consumer integration into the value creation process and (new) enabling technologies are discussed as possible constituting elements of alternative organizational models in a degrowth society. To date, collaborative value creation concepts, such as crowdsourcing and mass customization, have been discussed almost exclusively as business model patterns for companies in economies that are set to grow. The same applies to the assessment of (new) technologies, such as additive manufacturing, web-based user interfaces for co-creation, and other flexible production technologies that allow for collaborative and individualized production. Potential positive and negative effects of these concepts and technologies with regard to the objectives of degrowth are discussed in order to initiate a debate about the inclusion of CVC for the design of alternative organizational models that are in line with degrowth thinking. This think piece illustrates that several elements of collaborative value creation and its enabling technologies coincide with degrowth objectives but do not lead per se to their attainment. Thereby, a starting point for future (empirical) work in this area is generated.
