The goal of this study is to evaluate how do IoT platforms' vendors leverage modularity principles to reduce the complexity of IoT solutions development on their platforms marketplaces. The student will conduct a multi case study on complexity reduction in the design of cloud marketplaces for users (examples: AWS, Thingworx, Mindspehere) as where the marketplaces are instances of co-creation platforms.
This thesis aims to answet the main question: How is complexity reduced on the co-creative platform GitHub for code developers?
Sub-questions might include:
What are the mechanisms (example: reuse of code) that are applied to support the users throughout their journey on the platform? How are the users supported in their several tasks such as service discovery, design, development, evaluation, implemenation, coordination with other co-developers etc? How is complexity managed on the platform through modularity and description?
The innovation of new, data-driven services is not limited to industrial applications. Data-driven services can also be applied in football or other types of sport to deliver new offerings to both the fan as well as the athlete. This thesis should take a closer look at some examples of data-driven services that are currently offered.

Granting sustainable and economic mobility to people and companies in the peripheral regions of Germany that are affected by demographic change is one of the greater challenges for German transport policy. The mobility of people in these regions is a prerequisite for increasing the future attractiveness of employment, ensure supply and enhance quality of life. Modern approaches such as sharing services, crowdsourcing and digital data sources could serve as possible means to tackle these challenges.
It is one of the greater challenges for German transport policy to grant sustainable and economic mobility to people and companies in the peripheral regions of Germany affected by demographic change. The mobility of people in these often rural regions is a prerequisite for maintaining or increasing the future attractiveness of employment, for ensuring supplies and enhancing the quality of life. Modern approaches such as sharing services, crowdsourcing and digital data sources could serve as possible means to tackle these challenges.
