In Smart MaaS, Fraunhofer IESE contributes, in particular, its competence in the conception and design of Digital Ecosystems. For this purpose, we follow a comprehensive modeling methodology that, on the one hand, flexibly addresses the requirements and constraints of the mobility industry and, on the other hand, takes into account the different aspects of an ecosystem. Relevant decisions and core activities provide the framework for the design, e.g., the definition of the ecosystem actors, the business strategy, the required technical infrastructure, the openness strategy, as well as the implementation of the business strategy in services and applications.
In the business strategy, value flows, dependencies among services, contractual relationships, and money flows are taken into account, while the openness strategy determines the exchange of information between the partners and the openness of the ecosystem for new partners.
Once the contributions of the individual ecosystem partners have been defined and aligned, Fraunhofer IESE evaluates the overall concept. In doing so, both the value of the ecosystem for all involved stakeholders and the consistency of the decisions made are examined.
