Book Description :

Platform Ecosystems is a hands-on guide that offers a complete roadmap for designing and orchestrating vibrant software platform ecosystems. Unlike software products that are managed, the evolution of ecosystems and their myriad participants must be orchestrated through a thoughtful alignment of architecture and governance. Whether you are an IT professional or a general manager, you will benefit from this book because platform strategy here lies at the intersection of software architecture and business strategy. It offers actionable tools to develop your own platform strategy, backed by original research, tangible metrics, rich data, and cases. You will learn how architectural choices create organically-evolvable, vibrant ecosystems. You will also learn to apply state-of-the-art research in software engineering, strategy, and evolutionary biology to leverage ecosystem dynamics unique to platforms. Read this book to learn how to: Evolve software products and services into vibrant platform ecosystems Orchestrate platform architecture and governance to sustain competitive advantage Govern platform evolution using a powerful 3-dimensional framework If you’re ready to transform platform strategy from newspaper gossip and business school theory to real-world competitive advantage, start right here! Understand how architecture and strategy are inseparably intertwined in platform ecosystems Architect future-proof platforms and apps and amplify these choices through governance Evolve platforms, apps, and entire ecosystems into vibrant successes and spot platform opportunities in almost any—not just IT—industry

Book Description :

This thesis is focusing on three little-explored contextual conditions that are important for a better understanding of digital platform ecosystems: digital platforms in a nascent stage of maturity, digital platforms built by incumbents, and digital platforms embedded in the IoT phenomenon. Thus, the thesis contributes to the question of how established companies navigating nascent digital platform ecosystems in the IoT. The work builds and contributes to the literature on digital platform ecosystems. Three main contributions are made through explorative qualitative research in the form of Delphi and case studies as well as through systematic literature research on the above-mentioned themes: First, the thesis synthesizes important knowledge about the nascent stage of digital platform ecosystems and identifies value co-creation challenges specific to this early maturity stage. Second, given the increasing importance of established companies in the platform discourse, this thesis identifies the intra- and inter-organizational challenges that incumbent organizations face in building digital platform ecosystems, emphasizing the importance of the organizational type in building a platform ecosystem. Third, the dissertation positions platforms in the IoT as a new digital platform instantiation within the scholarly platform discourse and outlines important phoneme-related characteristics that determine value creation.

Book Description :

This book reflects on what it means to live as urban citizens in a world increasingly shaped by the business and organisational logics of digital platforms. Where smart city strategies promote the roll-out of internet of things (IoT) technologies and big data analytics by city governments worldwide, platform urbanism responds to the deep and pervasive entanglements that exist between urban citizens, city services and platform ecosystems today. Recent years have witnessed a backlash against major global platforms, evidenced by burgeoning literatures on platform capitalism, the platform society, platform surveillance and platform governance, as well as regulatory attention towards the market power of platforms in their dominance of global data infrastructure. This book responds to these developments and asks: How do platform ecosystems reshape connected cities? How do urban researchers and policy makers respond to the logics of platform ecosystems and platform intermediation? What sorts of multisensory urban engagements are rendered through platform interfaces and modalities? And what sorts of governance challenges and responses are needed to cultivate and champion the digital public spaces of our connected lives.

Book Description :

Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,3, University of Mannheim, language: English, abstract: Managers in strategy and organization for innovation are increasingly confronted with the challenge to compete on the basis of complex technology platforms. Prominent examples, such as Microsoft Windows (operating systems), Google (Internet search engines), Facebook (online social networks), Sony PlayStation (video game consoles), Visa (payment cards), Wal-Mart (retail), Tesla Motors (electric cars) or Life Technologies (genome sequencing), demonstrate that platforms are pervasive in many industries. In fact, platforms represent one of three configuration models through which firms innovate and generate value. Thus, platforms are both a mechanism for value creation through innovation and value capture through appropriation. Their economic importance is substantial: in terms of market value, 60 of the 100 largest companies worldwide earn more than half of their income in platform markets. The emergence of platforms reflects the growing interdependency between products and services and the increasing dispersion of innovation activities among many different actors, especially in rapidly evolving high-tech industries. It has been widely acknowledged in management theory and practice that in order to successfully commercialize innovations and create value for end users, platforms have to be embedded in an interrelated array of organizations, including suppliers, complementors, customers, competitors and institutions. Thereby, platforms constitute the foundation upon which a vast and diverse web of firms, commonly defined as a ‘business ecosystem’, develop and provide complementary products and services. While the question of how platform owners can stimulate R&D activities by complementors has been tackled in the academic literature and evolved to a promising research field, a coherent concept of the managerial levers is still missing. This motivates the following research question: “What firm-level and industry-level determinants of platform-centric ecosystems encourage or impede complementary innovation by third-party organizations?” Accordingly, the main objective of this thesis is to conceptualize an integrated view of the defining elements of platform ecosystems and their implications for the innovation orientation of complementors. In addition, this thesis aims to test and build on the proposed theoretical framework empirically by investigating the high-tech industry platform ecosystems of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Advanced RISC Machines (ARM).

Book Description :

Dynamic capabilities (DCs) refer to a firm's abilities to continuously adapt its resource base in order to respond to changes in its external environment. The capability to change dynamically is crucial in business ecosystems that are composed of a variety of actors. Amazon Web Services (AWS), the leader in the cloud platform industry, is a promising cloud platform provider (CPP) to show a high degree of dynamic capability fulfillment within its highly fluctuating ecosystem. To date, the full scope of dynamic capabilities in cloud platform ecosystems (CPEs) has not been fully understood. Previous work has failed to deliver a combined perspective of explicit dynamic capabilities in cloud platform ecosystems applied on an in-depth practical case. With our mixed-method case study on the AWS ecosystem we deliver a thorough understanding of its sensing, seizing and transforming capabilities. We generate a set of strategy management frameworks that support our expectations and lead to unexpected insights. We find out that AWS develops and holds a large set of interacting dynamic capabilities incorporating a variety of ecosystem actors in order to sustain tremendous customer value and satisfaction. The thesis infers significant theoretical and practical implications for all CPE actors, like partners, customers, investors and researchers in the field of IT strategy management. Managers of all CPE actors are encouraged to critically evaluate their own maturity level and complement a CPP's DC explications in order to boost business by implementing sensing, seizing, transforming and innovating capabilities.

Book Description :

Master's Thesis from the year 2020 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1.0, AKAD University of Applied Sciences Stuttgart, language: English, abstract: This thesis deals with the development of a suitable business model for a digital platform in the AA company. For this purpose, a suitable process model with appropriate instruments for the development of an ecosystem-based platform must be found. What is the process for building a successful business model for a digital platform? This research question is at the center of our work. The master thesis is a contribution to the process of building an ecosystem-based digital platform. Two basic directions must be followed in the creation of a data-centric digital platform: The construction of a digital ecosystem and the establishment of a business model. Digital change brings with it many changes, including high dynamics and the need to react, pressure on companies to innovate, new distribution channels and complex relationships with customers and partners. Companies are focusing their strategic orientation on digital structures, planning horizons and market boundaries are expanding, and ecosystems and platforms are being created as a result. Digital platforms are seen as the foundation of future value creation systems; they coordinate supply and demand in an ecosystem. In order to achieve the primary research goal, the modal goals were formulated: Determination of the success factors as strategic guidelines for the business model of the digital platform; development of the procedural model for building the ecosystem and creation of a business model for the platform. The modal goals were assigned to the two fields of investigation. The findings on the success factors of the digital platform from investigation field 1 flow into investigation field 2, in which a business model for the digital platform is set up. The success factors were identified on the basis of a literature search. These were expanded in field of investigation 1 by evaluating the scientific works and studies available in the database and by subsequent group interviews.

Book Description :

Master's Thesis from the year 2019 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,3, University of Flensburg (International Institute of Management and Economic Education (IIM)), language: English, abstract: The purpose of this research was to investigate how stakeholders in the Nelson Mandela Bay start-up ecosystem can enhance awareness of digital tools. Firstly, challenges that aspiring entrepreneurs in South Africa face in their early start-up activities were identified by the researcher. Secondly, barriers to using digital tools on their entrepreneurial journeys were discovered. Lastly, implications of these challenges and barriers for the efforts of relevant stakeholders in Nelson Mandela Bay were identified in order to propose strategies for effective and target-group-oriented start-up support. The researcher used a case study approach and qualitative data was collected through a) focus group discussions with twelve incubatees from two business incubators in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and b) participant observations during a three-month research stay. Design Thinking workshops were facilitated to conduct further research and to come up with strategies that will help enhance awareness of digital tools in the regional start-up ecosystem. Data analysis methods included keyword cloud analysis, qualitative content analysis, and an in-depth target group analysis. Up until now, incubatees of business incubators in Nelson Mandela Bay have not been able to exploit opportunities presented through information and communication technologies and their needs in this area have, therefore, been largely neglected. This is due to a lack of communication and cooperation between relevant stakeholders in the Nelson Mandela Bay start-up ecosystem and the fact that the digital divide has not yet been fully recognised by existing business incubation programmes. This study has proposed several strategies that can ultimately enhance awareness of digital tools. In order to create a better understanding of barriers to using digital tools amongst the target group, personas and empathy maps were created. Furthermore, the researcher developed a comprehensive overview of digital tools. The in-depth target group analysis revealed four types of aspiring entrepreneurs who could potentially represent the whole of South Africa. Early start-up activities, which can enable aspiring entrepreneurs to establish their business successfully in a dynamic market, were also identified. The Lean Startup and Design Thinking methodology enabled the researcher to generate practice- and goal-oriented results due to their potential of meeting the underlying needs of this study’s target group.

Book Description :

During the last decade, platform businesses such as Uber, Airbnb, Amazon and eBay have been taking over the world. In almost every sector, traditional businesses are under attack from digital disrupters that are effectively harnessing the power of communities. But what exactly is a platform business and why is it different? In Platform Strategy, Laure Claire Reillier and Benoit Reillier provide a practical guide for students, digital entrepreneurs and executives to understand what platforms are, how they work and how you can build one successfully. Using their own "rocket model" and original case studies (including Google, Apple, Amazon), they explain how designing, igniting and scaling a platform business requires learning a whole new set of management rules. Platform Strategy also offers many fascinating insights into the future of platforms, their regulation and governance, as well as how they can be combined with other business models. Benoit Reillier and Laure Claire Reillier are co-founders of Launchworks, a leading advisory firm focused on helping organizations develop and scale innovative business models.

Book Description :

With the increasing awareness of the fragility of the earth's resources, and the rising demands of a growing and diverse population, land use planning is evolving into a multi-disciplinary process of continuous interaction with different land users and constant readjustment to accommodate their divergent needs. It is more critical than ever to plan for the use of land resources, using the application of indigenous knowledge and the rapidly developing capabilities of information technology. The Future of the Land provides an overview of the concepts and methodologies of land evaluation and the formulation of land use options and scenarios. The book is structured around issues of land use planning methodology at four different scales, these being supranational, national, regional and farm. A total of seven case studies representing these four different scales are presented, illustrating common features of the agroclimatic and economic zones of the world. An essential feature of each study is the presentation of different perspectives of land use planning including those of the land users, scientists and decision-makers. This approach illustrates the requirements and interests of different parties, which may serve as a basis for negotiation. This book shows that despite the great technical advances of recent years, and our increased knowledge of the resource base, the challenges of land use planning are bewildering. The mobilisation and integration of knowledge for the development of land use options is an essential part of the solution.
