Project Launch

Dear BigDieMo Community,

Our Project received the official “Go” from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and will now proceed to start working.

The Kick-Off meeting of our project team consisting of KIT, FAU, UHH, Festo and Cyberforum will take place in Karlsruhe on the 12th of November 2015.

The Objectives of our Project can be characterized in the following five sub goals:


Needs identification


It is essential to analyse the needs of German enterprises in developing and transforming data based business models in order to design both a framework of correct granularity and a user-oriented toolbox.




Frame developement


The development of a framework is the scientific basis for the project. It contains possible dimensions and characteristics of data based business models.




Data based business

model categorization


Types of data based business models are identified by the classification of existing business models according to the framework. The identification will later serve as inspiration and orientation for organizations while shaping own business models.




Toolbox developement


In order to support enterprises with the design of data based business models, a practically oriented toolbox is developed which includes different methods and tools which will serve for the structured design of data based business models.




Pilot project initiation


Together with industry partners pilot business models are developed and launched. Gained experience is processed and included into the existing toolbox.



We look forward to an exciting and successful project!
