Platform Business Models: Friend or Foe?

Game-Changing Business Model Disruption, Presented by SAP

May 3 2018 • 55 mins

The buzz: “A platform is a business model that creates value by facilitating exchanges between two or more interdependent groups, usually consumers and producers…Platforms don’t…own the means of production…they create the means of connection” (Alex Moazed). In the digital age, platform businesses are pervasive and fundamentally changing the world. The successful ones follow five patterns that naturally translate into market dominance, exploding margins and generating volumes of sensitive data. If your company is not on board yet, it’s time to reassess your assets, innovate and incubate. The experts speak. Dr. Bernd-Uwe Pagel, SAP: “The prize of greatness is responsibility (Winston Churchill). Claus von Riegen, SAP: That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons that history has to teach” (Aldous Huxley). Nils Herzberg, SAP: “Forget the past” (Nelson Mandela). Join us for Platform Business Models: Friend or Foe?
