It is important to recognise how a platform business model differs from a traditional linear business model to understand the value of a platform business as Platform business models have transformed the way businesses are conceptualized and conducted to inculcate digital transformation.
- a traditional linear business model creates value by selling products down the supply chain,
- the platform business model brings together a community of users (two or more groups of users) by providing a common platform for transactions and interactions between the members of such groups.
Let’s look at a few key aspects to adopt the Platform Business Model which implies adapting the digital transformation and hence technological advancements. Platform Business Models
a) Assists in building a Customized Platform using Agile Methodology:
Whether revamping an existing technology platform or aiming to build a platform business model there needs to be a well-diversified strategy in place involving the key players within the model. The cornerstone is to have a legal framework pertaining to the Platform business model in order to protect itself. Two such associated risks are related to
- intellectual property &
- data protection
A Compliance Strategy with Smart Risk Management Procedures in place meeting the varied regulatory requirements across the globe as a part of the overall strategy for the Platform Business Model will ensure its success.
b) Dynamic Business Opportunities:
There are several successful variants of platform business models adopted by various organizations across the globe such as
- online marketplaces,
- social networks,
- sharing economy,
- payment systems etc.
as the platform model is a dynamic business model that scales quickly and grabs a bigger market share by enabling interactions and collaborations across a large number of participants as a part of the ecosystem.
Two key aspects where platform business models have a significant edge over their predecessors are:
- having favourable reduced cost structures (close to zero marginal costs) and
- creating greater value through network effects (value addition by the increase in the number of users)
This further assists in addressing the interdependency of demand between the different platform user groups as a part of the Platform Business Model Ecosystem.
c) Ensure Data Protection:
Making use of data within legal boundaries is always crucial despite having loads of data.
Because of network effects, data is even more of a compelling and complex challenge to handle, as a part of the Platform Business Model. Hence, there is an intrinsic need or requirement for platform businesses to ensure compliance procedures with applicable data protection and security regulations in place stringently without posing a financial risk and hence an operational risk and a regulatory risk.
Continual Vigilance is important when platform business is made operational, as IP issues and data protection obligations persist.
d) Maintain Data Privacy by safeguarding Intellectual Property:
IP is the most valuable asset for any business model and it is even more significant in the platform business model is digital in nature. Therefore it is important to clearly define the IP assets and have insights on the rights involved as clearly defined procedures entail identifying:
- the nature of the use of the IP assets,
- accessing the IP protection and
- protecting it by solid contractual agreements
As mentioned, having a sophisticated and effective IP strategy in place as a part of the platform economy will avoid financial and operational risks due to IP right infringements or imitations, brand damage and dilution of rights.
In order to remain successful, Collaboration with a trusted partner who understands the platform economy business and its (legal) implications is key to preparing, supporting and navigating the several hurdles for sustainable growth and protection of business as
- Platform business model differs from a traditional linear model by providing a common platform of transactions and interactions between communities of users, within the ecosystem and across multiple platforms.
- Key elements where platform business models have a significant edge over traditional business models are favourable cost structures and the creation of greater value through network effects which are the core constituents of the platform business model.
- Two essential risks associated with building a platform model, are related to intellectual property (IP) and data protection and need to be addressed as a part of the overall strategy for a platform business model.
- Varying regulatory requirements of both IP and data protection in countries across the globe necessitate having an adequate compliance strategy and using a smart risk management approach from the beginning when the conceptualization of building a platform business model is made.
