About

I finished my Master's degree in Information Science at FEUP (Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto) in 2010. My master thesis was done in the scope of Information Management and Enterprise Content Management research domains.

Professionally, I started working as IT Consultant at Centre for Enterprise Systems Engineering (CESE) in INESC TEC in December 2008. As a consultant, I worked with companies from different sectors, both industry and services, in projects for improving their Business Processes and Information Systems. Moreover, I actively participated as researcher in European RTD Projects and in research activities in information and knowledge management within the Collaborative Networks research group led by Professor António Lucas Soares. In the same way, I kept my connection with the university, being a Guest Lecturer in the Enterprise Information course of the Information Science Master programme at Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto.

In 2014 I left INESC TEC to embrace a new professional challenge outside the research environment at VORTAL as Functional Analyst. This represented an excellent opportunity to develop my soft-skills and to get experience in the development of information systems, in particular in the areas of software requirements elicitation and specification and to get familiar with the most recent software product development methodologies. 

In the end of 2016 I felt the need to accomplish another one of my personal and professional goals: develop a PhD. Therefore, I rejoin INESC TEC to work as a researcher with António Lucas Soares at Centre for Enterprise Systems Engineering (CESE) in scientifc domains of Information Management, Knowledge Management, Collaboration and Digital Platforms. I joined the FEUP Doctoral Program in Digital Media, in 2017. I have also been working with FEUP, since the beginning of 2018, as a research fellow for the CHIC Project (Cooperative Holistic View on Internet and Content), the largest R&D portuguese national project in the media area.

Providing industry 4.0 technologies: The case of a production technology cluster

Authors
Dalmarco, G; Ramalho, FR; Barros, AC; Soares, AL;

Publication
Journal of High Technology Management Research

Abstract
The concept of industry 4.0 (i4.0) encompasses the integration of different technologies into an autonomous, knowledge- and sensor-based, self-regulating production system. Our objective is to synthesize which are the challenges and opportunities of adopting i4.0 from the perspective of technology provider companies. A single-case research was conducted with ten companies at the Portuguese Production Technologies Cluster. Based on i4.0 technologies – Augmented reality; Additive Manufacturing; Big Data; Cloud Computing; Cyber-Physical Systems; Cybersecurity; Smart Robotics; Simulation; and System Integration – interviewees mentioned that the main adoption challenges are the analysis of data generated, integration of new technologies with available equipment and workforce, and computational limitations. The main opportunities are improvements in: efficiency; flexibility; productivity; cybersecurity; quality of products and services; and decision process due to data analysis. Interviewees have also foreseen changes in company's business model through the integration of internal resources with complementary activities of their partners and other cluster companies. © 2019 Elsevier Inc.

Abstract
This chapter presents the preliminary results of an IT organizational project management maturity research called OPM3® Portugal Project, which is currently underway. It was designed by Portuguese research and development organization Ambithus, based on PMI's (Project Management Institute) OPM3® (Organizational Project Management Maturity Model) standard. A descriptive analysis of IT organizations is made, the case studies selection criteria are explained, and a relevant literature revision of clustering models is made. Preliminary results from the IT organizations are presented and organized by Project Management and Portfolio Management processes, and Organizational Enablers. After the results analysis, it presents a list of processes and procedures that serves as the guidelines for what IT organizations need to improve to obtain a better level of maturity in Project Management. The overall results show that the IT Portuguese industry is strong on its processes and has a good level of maturity in project management.
