As of today, no comprehensive solution for Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is commercially available, or in operation on a wider than prototype scale, although many devices and systems have been developed over the last years. Consumer demands in AAL comprise many different business areas and thus a comprehensive support for customer processes requires new forms of collaborative service delivery. Therefore, a major task is to create sustainable business models for enterprise networks. This paper presents a framework for collaborative business models as structure guideline. It deduces success factors from other industries and adds special characteristics of AAL. A checklist is created as guidance tool for helping companies to establish successful collaborative business models. This business perspective is intended to complement technological innovation in the field of AAL.
