Software Business Model Tool
This section presents a software business model tool incorporating some of the content developed in the previous sections. Section 6.1 introduces the business scenarios and the resulting requirements. Accordingly, Section 6.2 develops the architecture of a software business model tool that addresses the requirements. Section 6.3 then describes the scope and functionalities of the implemented prototype. Additionally, details on the technical scope and mode of realization are summarized. Finally, the tool is evaluated based on empirical usage data and judgments of software firm decision makers in Section 6.4. The evaluation shows that the software business model tool is highly appreciated by practitioners. Nevertheless, being only a first prototype with limited scope, further work is needed to incorporate additional data and functionalities and hence to provide a comprehensive decision support system assisting in the management of software business models.
