This document is supported by a Star data base schema, where a single core table is “surrounded” by a bunch of smaller, look-up tables.
Core Table: Items
This is the store for the items that are displayed on the Business Model Canvas overview in , as well as in the detail views in .
The columns are as follows [[how can we access the underlying document model to get this info?]]
The columns names are self-explanatory.
The voting functionality is displayed only for Items of Version Suggested addition, as it is only these that can be promoted to become accepted Workshop additions. [[The promotion functionality has been left for a later version]]
The table has an interactive filter control to facilitate data management.
Interactive Filter for Items by Version:
Lookup Table: Versions
The Unbundling discussion from the original text centres around the dissection of an original business model into its component parts. These parts are stored here as Versions. Used as a lookup in the Items table, they serve to filter the displays in line with the on-going workshop discussion.
The Version data set was extended to include Suggested addition and Workshop addition, allowing easy inclusion/ exclusion of these items from the workspaces.
The column Economics is merely descriptive text taken from the sample data.
Lookup Table: Business Models
The discussion of the Unbundling Pattern in the source is based on two business models. These are documented in this table, again with self-explanatory column naming.
Lookup Table: Building Blocks
Osterwalder’s and Pigneur’s Business Model Canvas consists of nine building blocks, which are documented in this table.
The column names are self-explanatory.
The Created by and Timestamp columns were an earlier attempt to support a basic audit trail, which was not followed consistently through the project.
