Congratulations to Telfer professors Bijan Raahemi (supervisor) and Greg Richards (co-supervisor), and Seyed Mohammad Amin Kamali, MSc candidate in Systems Science at the University of Ottawa, who were awarded a Mitacs-Accelerate Graduate Internship grant. The one-year project, entitled Design and Implementation of a Framework for Performance Management in Service Oriented Virtual Organizations (SOVO PM), is sponsored by IBM Canada Ltd.
This project focuses on the design and implementation of performance management in service-oriented virtual organizations (SOVOs), including a structural and a procedural framework for SOVO performance measurement and management. The proposed framework will be implemented in a prototype model using IBM tools including Websphere business process manager, Websphere Business Monitor, Tivoli, and Cognos BI.
“Mitacs-Accelerate is Canada’s premiere research internship program. It connects companies with over 50 research-based universities through graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, who apply their specialized expertise to business research challenges. Interns transfer their skills from theory to real-world application, while the companies gain a competitive advantage by accessing high-quality research expertise.” (Source: www.mitacs.ca/accelerate).
