Companies now-a-days are driven by and make use of multifaceted technologies to offer frameworks that allow end users to interact with each other and even use these frameworks to build their own companies and are based on a platform business model, in a distinct way, to grow exponentially and grab significant market share while composing the modern day platform economy.
We have already learnt from the previous article that Technology Platforms are ever-growing in order to address the data/information dis-similarities for the benefit of the economies all around the globe.
We have also seen a few examples of such Platform Economy platforms as follows:
- a) Platform for Frontline Workers
- b) Platform for Healthcare (/Pharma)
- c) Platform for Automotives (Manufacturing)
- d) Platform for Sales & Distribution (Retail/Consumer e-Commerce)
- e) Platform for Digital Transactions (Payments)
- f) Platform for Rural Agri-Tech:
- g) Platform for Hospitality/Travel
- h) Platform for BFSI/MicroFinance
- i) Platform for Consulting/Advisory/ITES

and so on or a combination of one another which is redefining rural commerce Phygically.
Traditional pipeline businesses have been around us for a few decades and for as long as we’ve had industry and were always the dominant business model until the digital revolution of the last few decades. These pipeline business models adapted to the procedure where the flow of value was linear from producer to consumer, like water flowing through a pipe, and hence is the name. These traditional companies offered goods and products that were spread across multiple industries, including automakers, manufacturers, oil and gas companies, and brick-and-mortar retailers.
Rapid digital innovation spanning across a few good years has witnessed many of the valuable companies from all industries to shift from a products-based pipeline model to technology-driven platform models with multiple offerings. Platform businesses do not exist only to make things but also to push them out to users and consumers thus encouraging their users to create, share, and consume while providing for interaction and transactional commerce with each other.
Modern business models are innovative and are easily adapting to disruptive digital strategy. Modern companies have the choice/chance to create their own platforms. If creating their own platform seems outside their scope, they can at the very least become part of another platform’s ecosystem by leveraging existing platforms to their advantage.
Many companies have been gradually (or) already embraced and incorporated the easiest way to integrate platform business practices into their own companies by using preexisting digital tools to engage their networks. Digital Adoption is progressing rapidly across industries.
Digital Transformation is happening abruptly and companies are developing new leadership and culture designed around understanding their customer base. The toughest option for management, to choose from, in various companies is taking an existing company and devoting a lot of time, manpower and money to building a successful digital platform, with all the stakeholders involved. There will be technology and skill gaps to overcome most of the time, and it will take years of effort to create the right team to build the right platform. But for some companies with deep enough pockets and a clear enough vision/leadership of what they want their platform to be, then this may be the best way to bring value to their market.
A lot has been written about the platform economy covering its benefits, its faults, and its future where experts agree that even though there are challenges with data sharing, privacy and information selling, the platform economy is emerging and isn’t going away anytime soon. On a macro level, the majority of the largest companies in the world are using a platform model, but only a small fraction of the top thousand can be considered a true platform. There is still a lot of scope for growth and innovation from both sides as the big players reach further into new industries while traditional businesses learn to adapt and develop into hybrid business models, hopefully combining the best of both models.
Companies need to step-up and take the initiative of technology adoption for embracing digital transformation and hence digital acceleration.
