Martin Bergaus investigated Service Delivery Platforms (SDP), focussing on their challenges and design aspects from a users perspective. Qualitatively he incorporated user experience in SDP research, developing a Grounded Theory (GT) then set out parameters needed when developing SDP investigations from a user viewpoint, before technical implementation. This study indicates usability factors for future SDP systems and contributes to the exploratory framework represented by the six GT categories. The results of this study benefit Information Systems (IS) experts developing SDP based ICT systems and those interested in practical applications of GT. Martin Bergaus, Ph.D., teaches as an associate lecturer at the University of Applied Science and Technical University in Vienna. His current research interests focuses on a qualitative research using Grounded Theory in the field of Information Systems. He has professional experiences within the ICT and company start up.

In this audiobook, I bring six arguments that the general population has against marijuana and other drugs. In having a neutral standpoint on the legalization of all drugs, I try to analyze both parties and consider each side´s argument. With each argument, I define the argument, provide examples, and then give a reflection to that argument from a supporter standpoint of legalized drugs. This paper is non-biased and just incorporates real arguments with real responses. I hope you can gain some information from this listening and have better understanding of this political issue. I try to mix both moral evidence, as well as factual evidence, that is general knowledge in terms of medical facts, to support each argument and reflection. I possess A Bachelors Degree of Organizational management, and an Associates Degree of Management Technology. This qualifies as a scholarly article. Language: English. Narrator: Alan Bennett.
