Platform Strategies

The Business Issue

  • Platform-based business models are overtaking traditional pipeline businesses
  • Platform strategies are adopted by tech giants (e.g. Amazon, Google), by emerging players (e.g Airbnb, Uber) and by most of new digital start-ups
  • Incumbents need to quickly understand this new business paradigm and develop new platform (or hybrid) strategies

The Management Idea

  • Our Faculty Partner, Professor Marshall Van Alstyne at Boston University and at MIT has extensively researched the topic, culminating in 2016 best seller book “Platform Revolution”
  • At ECSI Consulting we are delivering several projects applying platform principles to different ecosystems …
  • … both in B2C and B2B, in traditional platform areas (i.e. e-commerce) and in emerging ones (e.g. IOT), supporting large incumbents and digital players

The Results

  • Reshaping of traditional strategic thinking and priorities
  • Integration of digital components within a new business model
  • Increased ability to respond to the entry of tech giants and new digital players attacking your business
