Martin Bergaus investigated Service Delivery Platforms (SDP), focussing on their challenges and design aspects from a users perspective. Qualitatively he incorporated user experience in SDP research, developing a Grounded Theory (GT) then set out parameters needed when developing SDP investigations from a user viewpoint, before technical implementation.
