Compliance, Regional Commitment to the Global Challenges

Closing Plenary: From services to platforms: business models to create and capture value in the 21st Century

Many companies sell services; it is in their DNA to provide an integrated, complete suite of products that satisfy as much as possible the needs of their customers. This may prove a very complex task when customers are heterogeneous and have different needs, as the possibilities of leveraging economies of scale are greatly diminished.


Being able to count on third companies to develop complements to our basic offering that add value to both our product and our clients is at the core of the concept of platform competition. Transforming a product or service into a platform like Amazon has done evolving from a “store” to a “marketplace” is at the heart of the competitiveness of many companies in the second decade of the twenty-first century. This talk will discuss, via examples, the basic concepts of platform competition and give some hints on how companies can start transforming in that direction of they chose to.
