In the Internet of the future, services will be even simpler to provide and use than today. The big advantage of Internet- based services lies in their enormous efficiency: companies will be placed in the position of outsourcing their expensive IT activity through appropriate offers, enabling costs for backup, system maintenance, and redundancy to be reduced. One immediate sign of the digital transformation is that conventional processes and flows can be digitally emulated. It will be exciting as incremental values and services take shape that did not previously exist. Business models can be tailored to individual requirements on emerging service platforms. These include out-sourced cloud storage and software-as-a-service, as well as online marketplaces, data analysis and evaluation tools, and brokerage platforms. The new digital services can more intuitively and better comprehend user needs, such as through semantic technologies for example. A prerequisite for a functioning network is that all the services use common technical standards for data access in order to link various processes with one another and be able to take into account security as well as data protection aspects.
