Abstract
The modern society is getting more and more digitalized and the concept Internet
of Things is growing. The data being collected and digital services require a place
to be accessed and sold, thus setting the demand for a new kind of marketplace; an
online IoT focused marketplace. The large EU supported open source platform for
Smart Solutions, FIWARE, has created such a marketplace, namely the Business
API Ecosystem (BAE). This paper aims to evaluate and review the BAE, giving
a quality evaluation as well as comparing it to contemporary alternatives. This
will help interested parties to make an educated decision when choosing an IoT
marketplace.
The evaluation was done with a hands-on approach where the BAE was explored.

marketplace.
The evaluation was done with a hands-on approach where the BAE was explored.
The program was looked at from the perspective of both the administrator
and the users. It was installed, configured, tested and exploratory used. A custom
front-end was created to investigate its modifiability and the usability of its APIs.
Performance testing of the APIs was also done.
The results of the evaluation shows that the Business API Ecosystem is a
viable option for an IoT marketplace of high quality. However, it is a relatively
young and small project that which, without the use of plugins and other software,
lacks some much wanted IoT related functionality. (Less)
Popular Abstract
Data is an invaluable source of information and more data has been collected this last year than
the previous 5000 years combined. Data collected with the help of the Internet of Things has
further increased the collection rate, but the monitization of this data is slow.
