Creating OIBS handbook for Laurea students Case: Laurea ammattikorkeakoulu
A handbook for students who want to join OIBS (Open Innovation Banking System) has been produced with this thesis. It includes the following parts: Open source, social media and open innovation.
The purpose of the handbook is to familiarize students with the OIBS system. The secondary purpose of the thesis is to give instructions on what is needed for creating the OIBS server and environment. The OIBS platform is an “open source” platform which is slightly different from the Windows system.
In this thesis will describe how the OIBS system will be updated. No system will update itself, but an open source environment needs some activity from users to stay up-to-date. The OIBS environment might be updated several times per day because of many developers.
The last section reflects on the development of OIBS. It is a good system, but marketing outside Laurea should be sharper. The general public probably does not know OIBS very well and the marketing is the mean that makes OIBS the idea bank for the whole nation
Basics of the OIBS are open source, social media and open innovation. It purposes is to benefit of those groups’ innovations that are not usually noticed. These groups are for example pensioner and students.
