Developing Big Data Services: Tool kit for SMEs

CyberForum 10.07.2017

BigDieMo, Big Data service business models, started 2015 with a proposed duration of three years. The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the framework of the research program "Innovations for the production, service and work of tomorrow".

Tools to develop data-driven business models

Companies from Germany are given an orientation and method for the development of novel, data-based business models by BigDieMo. In line with the BMBF's high-tech strategy, thus BigDieMo is pursuing the long-term and overall objective of increasing innovation dynamics in the German economy.

One of the key results of the project is a kit for the design of Big Data services and the corresponding underlying data-based business models. The kit contains specific tools and methods as well as instructions for their use. The methods have been developed in a practice-oriented manner and are intended to enable small and medium-sized enterprises to develop their own data-driven business models, to implement them in their product service systems for their customers and not only to offer new services, but also to enter completely new markets.

Save the date: Roadshow in Karlsruhe on September 27th

At the half-time of the project, the kit is to be presented to interested small and medium-sized enterprises in the project regions (Karlsruhe, Hamburg, Nuremberg) within the framework of "BigDieMo-Roadshows".

Participating companies will gain insight into current research and procedures regarding data-driven services and business models. In addition to inspiration from potential areas of application, companies have the opportunity to test the developed toolbox for the expansion and design of data-based business models.

The kit is published together with the other results of the research project within a practical handbook.

The BigDieMo-Roadshow in Karlsruhe will take place on Wednesday, September 27, 2017, 16:00 to 19:30 in the premises of the CyberForum. Participation in the roadshow is free, but the number of participants is limited. Registration is requested. Please sign in here.

The project BigDieMo is jointly implemented by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, the University of Hamburg, Friedrich-Alexander-University Nuremberg, Festo AG & Co. KG and CyberForum e. V. together with other implementation partners.
