The January 2013 interview

"CHOReOS project gives us possibilities to validate our assumptions and methodologies of system dynamics simulation use for new products and technologies sustainability assessment"

CHOReOS Interview: Maira Leščevica was born and is living in Latvia. She is Professor at SSII (Socio-technical Systems Engineering Institute) VIA, Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences.

Maira LescevicaHow would you present the CHOReOS project?

CHOReOS addresses the needs of several users on different levels. It can help mainstream consumers using fresh ICT products as well as complex services providers like airports. It is aimed to increase the viability and performance of information systems through the introduction of ultra-large-scale solutions, choreographies and specific development environment (IDRE) granting advanced possibilities of products verification and validation.

For us, it is an honour to participate in CHOReOS, which is a futuristic project. Besides this project, the institute participates in distributed simulation developments on the Future Internet and on the Cloud ; FP7 FUPOL is one example. 

What is your specific role in the CHOReOS project?

I'm focusing in the Market Analysis section to complement the development side of the project. More specifically, I'm studying Market trends in the businesses that may exploit choreographies, collection and assessment of early market inputs using UTAUT acceptance methodology. My task is one of the elements in Integrated Technology Acceptance and Sustainability Assessment Model (IASAM) that will be used for CHOReOS pilots and overall results evaluation.

Among professionals, who will benefit from Choreos advances?

The main beneficiaries can be listed in two domains:

Primary domains Secondary domains 
Air transportation - Intelligent Airport, Digital travellersEducation
Mobile operatorsHealthcare and social care 
CRM SaaSGovernment institutions
Internet Services ProvidersSocial media, Media and Entertainment
