Abstract: A business model is an attractive concept for business management. It can benefit from ontology paradigms that are described more formally and more precisely. However, case studies of ontologies describing enterprise business models have rarely been reported in the literature, although there are a few indications of the impact of these ontologies on business models; however, these indications do not ease the assessment of the added value of this type of ontology. The aim of this paper is two-fold; on one hand, we highlight the lack of task-based assessment of enterprise business model ontologies via some concrete case studies, and on the other hand, we aim to tackle this issue by proposing indicators intended for measuring the impact of business model ontologies in the framework of enterprise business models.

 

Keywords: ontology evaluation; ontology task-based assessment; business model representation; business model ontologies; BMO; ontology business value; business information systems; business models.
