IT architectures and digital business models for small and medium-sized companies
BMSE works on the the correlations between business models and processes, in addition to the underlying IT software architectures. Platform-based business models represent a particularly promising approach for ensuring future success. These systems make it possible to merge data and services into new digital offerings. Even established sectors such as the metals and electronics industries, tourism and agriculture can profit from these platforms.
The BMSE researchers analyze industry-specific issues, develop suitable software architectures and build digital business models on top of the architectures. The challenge is to describe, model and evaluate the environment from a research standpoint. Once this is done, the actual development and implementation of the solution can take place.
