Abstract

Advances in data semantification and natural language querying are enabling new generations of context-aware mobile applications. Such applications would rely on platforms that integrate heterogeneous sets of user data from a range of applications and systems. Designing these platforms is challenging as they should serve multiple user groups at the same time. In this paper, we analyze who should subsidize multi-sided data platforms that enable mobile context-aware travel applications. After analyzing the different user groups and revenue models, we assess end-user acceptance of these revenue models through a survey among 197 potential users. Results show that users willing to share data with app developers are more inclined to use data-driven mobile travel apps but are less inclined to pay for them. This paradoxical result explains why premium-pricing as well as data-monetization strategies can both be viable.
