IoT - Business Model Evolution

Development and use of platform-based business models

The IoT - Business Model Evolution research project aims to enable SMEs of the injection moulding industry to develop and use platform-based business models. Research is thus being done on the development of a validated roadmapping procedure for the evaluation of different business model alternatives as well as on the necessary steps for the implementation of IoT platform-based business models.

Cooperation partner: Chair of Business Informatics, esp. Processes and Systems, University of Potsdam
