With the trend of digital economy, cloud
services and its ecosystem have developed and matured. Another fast-growing
trend, data Economy and big data, changes the way how cloud services create
value. This research aims to explain the evolution of cloud service development
during the big data era in the design science perspective. An ecosystem model with
three roles is proposed to show the big data ecosystem and the relationships
with the development of cloud services. Currently, we use a cloud service case
to explain the proposed model and believe that the proposed model can inspire
further research on cloud and big data ecosystem.
