On the one hand, the description explains the role of Theories of Change in development initiatives.

A question on the embedded video by Transform GhanaPeace (@transformghana_ on Twitter) helped me to clarify a "#aaaa42 Theory of Change" that becomes possible via the use of the country specific hashtags for the sustainable development goals and targets.

There is a reference to this page in an answer to a question on Quora:
How long does Twitter store hashtag information?.

The addition in ArchiMate 3.0 of application, technology and implementation event is noted. I am puzzled though with the absence of physical events - and other behaviour elements for the physical elements - with the justification "Rather, the behavior elements from the Technology Layer (technology function, process, interaction, service, and event) are used to model the behavior of all nodes, including physical equipment.
On the other hand, the spec chapter 15.2.5 gives the example of a threat event 'Tornado hits factory" - this event is not instantaneous, yet to me it clearly is a physical event.

A report at the Microfinance Gateway summarizes the findings of a study that examines the potential social and economic benefits of mobile financial services (MFS) over the next decade. It is based on data from Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, Serbia and Malaysia. The report identifies prerequisites for a successful MFS system, projects the evolution of MFS adoption and highlights regulatory issues. Findings include:

  • MFS will drive financial inclusion in the next decade;
  • MFS could accelerate economic growth by up to 5 percent by fuelling entrepreneurship and creating jobs;
  • MFS will reduce income inequality by providing financial access to the poorest segments.

The report states that many of the developing world’s financially excluded people already have mobile phones and relationships with telecommunication companies. For MFS to realize its potential as a powerful tool for social and economic development, regulators need to ensure a supportive environment that manages risk and promotes innovation.

The report is also posted at Zunia.
