Quality aspects in service ecosystems

Christoph Riedl, Tilo Böhmann, Michael Rosemann, Helmut Krcmar
2008 Proceedings of the 10th international conference on Electronic commerce - ICEC '08  
In this paper we propose a reference model for quality management in service ecosystems. This reference model is linked in particular to innovation and new service development.  ...  The complex and dynamic environment of these service ecosystems poses new requirements on quality management that are insufficiently addressed by current approaches that focus mainly on the technical aspects  ...  Hence, the authors developed a reference model for quality management in service ecosystems that can be used to guide the implementation of a quality management system for service ecosystems.  ...
