Abstract: The thesis argues that the enterprises need to understand their application context to be able to offer ﬂexible digital services. Furthermore, after analysing the state of research in Services Science, it concludes that different roles with varying backgrounds participate to design and implementation of digital services, which adds the need for alignment between those as a further challenge for ﬂexibility. To fulﬁl this, the thesis designs a context modelling method and evaluates it by means of Design Science Research (DSR).
