Abstract: Bringing up services based on Information and
Communication Technologies shows to be a complex process for everyone
involved in it. Dynamic ecosystem of businesses participating in creation
of the value proposition of the services requires a specific way of
reasoning and simplified guidance to implementation. We discuss how
industrial relationships evolve in terms of value dimensions, through a
lens of a business model. This discussion has been done through four
streams of literature starting from Activities, Resources and Actors Model
and value literature, and continues through value networks and ecosystem
literature, so as to round up in discussion on different views on business
models. Out of this discussion a conceptual framework has been presented.
On the other side, we present basis for the division of the analysis of
services based on ICT into two different views and actually offer a table
of separation of concerns (into these two views).
