Abstract:
The paper discusses opportunities and challenges in development of the current ecosystem of digital services. Special attention is paid to analysis of the role of Location Based Services(LBS)platforms for service ecosystems in the Internet of Things (IoT) era. We study architectures of LBS-enabled smart systems and analyze factors that could enable faster adoption of new service paradigms by the industry. The paper discusses potential roles of the IoT infrastructure for addressing this problem. One of the supporting questions is the role of mobile operational systems in development of a future ecosystem of the services, which we study by reviewing two approaches implemented in two open source mobile operational systems: Sailfish OS and Tizen OS. One of the starting observations was that the “cold start” problem is one of the top factors that block services from successful development. The problem refers to the case when a new service lacks relevant content. We propose to address this problem by providing developers with a toolkit for accessing relevant content available in various open databases. Development of a method for efficient data importing from open databases and content management is one of the practical results of this study. We implemented the proposed method as an extension to the open source LBS platform Geo2Tag. Now, it is available for free use and illustrates really good performance. Results of our study were tested on the most typical use cases of services for tourists and hospitality industry. The practical results of projects are available for use by business and helped us formulate priorities for further research.
