Business model project


This research aims at developing an ontology or framework for e-business models. By merging the conceptually rich business model approach with the more rigorous ontological approach and by applying it to e-business, we achieve an appropriate foundation for tools that would allow the understanding, sharing and communication, change, measuring and simulation of e-business models.
