Abstract:More and more companies are required to make a decision on whether or not they are going to invest in the exploration and adoption of International Data Spaces. The goal of this research is thus very simple and is summarised in the following design problem: - Improve International Data Spaces adoption decision making of organisations facing the decision to join an existing International Data Spaces ecosystem as an data provider or data consumer - By designing a maturity model based approach specific for International Data Spaces - That companies can use to determine expected required effort and expected impact of International Data Spaces adoption - In order to reduce bias and uncertainty in the decision making process The maturity model development procedure by Becker et al. (2009) was followed. After defining the problem definition and requirements of the model an extensive systematic literature search was performed. The Schumacher et al. (2019) maturity model for Industry 4.0 was selected to base the International Data Spaces maturity model on. The delevoped model contains a process definition, pre-adoption matrix, post-adoption matrix and strategy guide. It was validated by a single-case mechanism experiment. The insights gathered will help organisations in practice in determining whether or not International Data Spaces is an innovation in which they should invest time and resources.
