Cyber (in)security of personal data and information in times of digitization
Miha Dvojmoč, Mojca Tancer Verboten, 2022, original scientific article

Abstract: In an employment relationship, work and pay are no longer the only important aspects, as importance is increasingly shifting toward obligations concerning the protection of personal data and privacy arising from the prohibition of causing harm to the employer and the duty of loyalty to the employer. The article deals with the constitutionally protected right to privacy and the protection of personal data from the point of view of ensuring cyber security at the employer. The employer is obligated to protect the right to privacy by legal provisions, whereas from the point of view of ensuring the protection of privacy and information, the employer must protect, first and foremost, the personal data of employees. The main purpose of the legal protection of personal data is the lawful and fair processing of the personal data of individuals. Employers are thus facing an increasing number of risks related to the safety of employees and the security of business processes, and it is therefore important to establish comprehensive corporate security to ensure adequate security across all levels.
Keywords: cyber security, protection of personal data, protection of privacy, cyber threats, protection of business secrets

Sustainable operations of last mile logistics based on machine learning processes
Jerko Oršič, Borut Jereb, Matevž Obrecht, 2022, original scientific article

Abstract: The last-mile logistics is regarded as one of the least efficient, most expensive, and polluting part of the entire supply chain and has a significant impact and consequences on sustainable delivery operations. The leading business model in e-commerce called Attended Home Delivery is the most expensive and demanding when a short delivery window is mutually agreed upon with the customer, decreasing possible optimizing flexibility. On the other hand, last-mile logistics is changing as decisions should be made in real time. This paper is focused on the proposed solution of sustainability opportunities in Attended Home Delivery, where we use a new approach to achieve more sustainable deliveries with machine learning forecasts based on real-time data, different dynamic route planning algorithms, tracking logistics events, fleet capacities and other relevant data. The developed model proposes to influence customers to choose a more sustainable delivery time window with important sustainability benefits based on machine learning to predict accurate time windows with real-time data influence. At the same time, better utilization of vehicles, less congestion, and fewer failures at home delivery are achieved. More sustainable routes are selected in the preplanning process due to predicted traffic or other circumstances. Increasing time slots from 2 to 4 h makes it possible to improve travel distance by about 5.5% and decrease cost by 11% if we assume that only 20% of customers agree to larger time slots.

Business IT alignment impact on corporate sustainability
Uroš Zabukovšek, Polona Tominc, Samo Bobek, 2023, original scientific article

Abstract: Business-IT alignment (BITA) has become crucial for effective organisational management in today's interconnected global economy. This article investigates the relationship between BITA and corporate sustainability, exploring how businesses can leverage BITA for sustainable growth and development. The study employs a case research approach in a multinational manufacturing organisation, utilising a mixed methods research (MMR) design. In the quantitative part of the research, the PLS-SEM technique was used to examine the influence of six BITA factors on employees' self-perceived action competence for sustainability (SPACS). This study confirmed that all six BITA factors strongly influence all three SPACS factors. In the qualitative part of the research, semi-structured interviews were used to measure the BITA maturity level of the organisation and the influence of BITA factors on corporate sustainability. Based on quantitative and qualitative research results, it can be confirmed that BITA strongly influences corporate sustainability. Results also confirm that there is no universal approach to BITA and its influence on corporate sustainability. Organisations must focus on all factors of BITA equally to achieve better levels of BITA and ensure its influence on corporate sustainability.

Lada Marinković, Violeta Zubanov, Jasna Potočnik Topler, 2019, original scientific article

Abstract: Assertiveness has been gaining attention in the research studies in vocational and higher education and in managerial processes. The aim of this study was to examine a relationship between the level of assertiveness and willingness to work in a team, and research to what extent the level of assertiveness can predict the attitudes towards teamwork. The Scale of Assertiveness and a Scale of Attitudes towards Teamwork were applied to the sample of 284 respondents. The results suggest that individuals with higher scores on the Scale of Assertiveness have more positive attitudes towards teamwork, and what is significant is that the research confirmed that individual behaviour in a team structured environment can be improved through personal assertiveness development.

Zorica Đurić, Jasna Potočnik Topler, 2021, original scientific article

Abstract: Environmental protection and environmental sustainability are becoming increasingly important factors in the hotel business and their competitiveness, in a market that brings numerous benefits. Environmental sustainability is, increasingly, considered one of the most important functions of the hotel business, as well as communication and marketing, which attracts a larger number of guests. Some of the key aspects of hotel environmental sustainability are performance and environmental sustainability indicators, as well as hotel management of environmental performance in order to establish efficiency in that process. The principal question arising is how environmentally sustainable business affects hotel performance, and what are the most important indicators of the environmental hotel business. The aim of this article is to offer an insight into, and analysis of, performance and indicators of the environmental sustainability of hotels through the relevant literature. A case study from Serbia is used to point out the complexity and the significance of these indicators in the hotel business, as well as to emphasise the importance of environmental reports in the case of Serbia. The findings of our study are significant because they help hotel managers identify new opportunities for employing more sustainable processes for saving resources.

Vpliv kritičnih dejavnikov uspeha na uvedbo ERP rešitve Microsoft Dynamics Business Central
Laura Jurgec, 2023, master's thesis

Abstract: Podjetja za uspešno poslovanje potrebujejo orodje, ki jim pomaga pri avtomatizaciji in upravljanju njihovih osnovnih poslovnih procesov. To orodje so celovite informacijske rešitve oziroma rešitve ERP. Rešitve ERP pomagajo pri pretoku podatkov med različnimi oddelki podjetja, kot so finance, nabava, prodaja, proizvodnja itd., in ker so podatki shranjeni v skupni bazi podatkov, vsi oddelki vidijo enake podatke, zaradi česar ne more priti do podvajanja podatkov. Rešitve ERP lahko korenito izboljšajo učinkovitost poslovanja podjetja, zato se vse več podjetij odloča za njihovo uvedbo, vendar pa se mnogokrat zgodi, da je uvedba neuspešna. Z namenom, da bi bilo čim manj neuspešnih uvedb rešitev ERP, so bili vpeljani t. i. kritični dejavniki uspeha, ki nam pomagajo oziroma nas vodijo do opredelitve tistega, kar nam največ pomeni. Na te izsledke se nato osredotočimo tudi pri sami uvedbi rešitve ERP. Na začetku magistrskega dela smo se osredotočili na rešitve ERP na splošno, torej opredelili njihove značilnosti in določili najpogostejše module, medsebojno primerjali rešitve ERP, nameščene na lokaciji in v oblaku, opisali arhitekturno rešitev, predstavili ponudnike, njihove prednosti in slabosti ter trende, ki jih lahko pričakujemo v prihodnje. V nadaljevanju smo podrobneje opisali proces uvedbe rešitve ERP, kjer smo predstavili faze in življenjski cikel uvedbe, korake do uspešne uvedbe, metodologije vodenja projektov in pristope pri uvedbi rešitev ERP. V nadaljevanju magistrskega dela smo se osredotočili na kritične dejavnike uspeha. Ker vemo, da so rešitve ERP lahko nameščene na lokaciji ali v oblaku, smo preučili članke z obeh področij. Ker je računalništvo v oblaku razmeroma nova tehnologija, obstaja manj člankov na to temo, zato smo se osredotočili na zgolj enega, medtem ko smo za rešitve ERP, nameščene na lokaciji, preučili sedem člankov. Ker je na trgu mnogo ponudnikov rešitev ERP, smo na koncu magistrskega dela osredotočili na rešitev Business Central. V tem delu smo podrobneje opisali značilnosti rešitve Business Central, njene module in arhitekturo ter proces uvedbe s pomočjo metodologije Sure Step, prav tako smo ugotovili, kateri so kritični dejavniki uspeha, ki pozitivno vplivajo na uspešnost uvedbe rešitev ERP na splošno kot tudi na uspešnost specifične rešitve ERP Business Central.
