This report showcases best practices in how DNEs and start-ups utilize platforms to access new ideas/solutions, deepen engagement, and enable co-creation, which can be leveraged by technology buyer enterprises to improve their own.
"Compared with linear business models, platforms require a different approach in philosophy, management, and capabilities. Through these practices, traditional enterprises can avoid common pitfalls when embarking on multi-sided business models," says Lawrence Cheok, senior manager for Future of Commerce research.
