German term or phrase: Modellierbarkeit
... einer Software oder eines Services.

Wir benötigen den Begriff für eine Übersetzung - er kann also schlecht umschrieben werden.

Model-ability


Explanation:
Yes, these days you can use 'model-able' so you can use the above, but not very good English to be honest - not very elegant. I would instead choose to say 'ability to be modeled' or perhaps 'suitability for modeling'

Modellierbarkeit (einer Software)
Modelling (of software)


Explanation:
I would like to refer to Licklider and Taylor's "The Computer as a Communication Device" (Sept. 1968). Here the authors aim to support the following:

We can say with genuine and strong conviction that a particular form of digital computer organization, with its programs and its data, constitutes the dynamic, moldable medium that can revolutionize the art of modeling and that in so doing can improve the effectiveness of communication among people so much as perhaps to revolutionize that also.

Example sentence(s):
  • A particular form of digital computer organization can revolutionize the modeling of software.
  • Eine bestimmte Form der digitalen Computerorganisation kann die Modellierbarkeit von Software revolutionieren.
