is an academic project of Helsinki University of Technology,
Finland. MoMI II takes a techno-economic standpoint on the evolution of
the mobile service market.
Consumer studies, diffusion research and many topical business issues
have been studied with Nokia, Elisa, DNA Finland, AinaCom, Accenture,
YLE, Sanoma, and Finnish Ministry of Transport and Communications.
There is ongoing collaboration with many foreign universities
(e.g. MIT/USA and Waseda/Japan).
MoMI II continues the past LEAD, COIN, and MoMI in the techno-economic
modeling of the communications industry. The principal objective of
the project is to conduct academic research in modeling the rapidly
transforming industry. Pioneering data analysis and close collaboration
with industry stakeholders are the competitive advantages of MoMI.
MoMI / MoMI II projects have ended. The work continues in the MoMIE

Context of Research
MoMI project models the usage of mobile Internet and business. The
business dynamics of the rapidly transforming mobile industry are
analyzed with various modeling tools. The project collects empirical
data on the Finnish mobile market using novel research methods.
Quantitative and qualitative models are constructed based on the data.
In particular, emerging consumer Internet services are studied from a
techno-economic perspective. The evolution of mobile business models is
a central part of our research on new services dynamics.
The strengths of the project include the novelty of the used empirical
research methods, close collaboration with a high number of Finnish
mobile industry partners already committed to the project plan, and
collaborative research initiatives with some of the leading
universities in the world, including MIT (USA), University of Athens
(Greece), Helsinki School of Economics (Finland), Chalmers (Sweden) and
WASEDA (Japan). In addition, the project has linkages with InHoNets
(Tekes/GIGA), OtaSizzle (TKK), Econ@Tel (COST) and DECICOM (Tekes). The
project builds on the results of the LEAD and COIN projects that
initiated the longitudinal analysis of the Finnish mobile market in
2004-2007, the value of which is increasing as more datasets become
available in the future.
