Abstract

Despite the growth of the digital economy in many developing countries, rural communities are still marginalized in the current digital business ecosystems, which are highly urban-oriented. To address this issue, we have proposed in our previous works a reference architecture of a digital platform based on the principles of service orientation. In this paper, we evaluate the real-world applicability of the proposed reference architecture by using a technical action research approach in the West Java province of Indonesia. Our study demonstrates the feasibility of implementing the proposed architecture in a real-world setting, and analyzes its effectiveness in improving the economic climate in rural areas.
