  2. The strategic value of SOA: a comparative case study in the banking sector

    We report a comparative, cross-cultural case study of the implementation of Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) at a Scandinavian bank and a Swiss bank. The strategic rewards in the adoption of SOA appear to go beyond marketplace issues of ICT capability acquisition, and unexpectedly arise in the c...
  3. Long-range transport of dust to the Baltic Sea region

    International Journal of Environment and Pollution 22(1-2):72 (2004)

    The origin of the September 2001 dust episode around the Baltic Sea was estimated by a model study to be the Ryn Peski desert of Kazakhstan.

    International Journal of Public Policy 5(4):331 (2010)

In the econometric part of our inquiry, we estimate Structural Vector Autoregressions (SVARs) to ana...
