Speeches of Luca Ruggeri
Platforms strategies: massive data hubs for growing ecosystems
Platformization of companies and organizations is the main growth strategy they have to be resilient into our VUCA world. By exploring new markets, or efficientizing existing ones or niches, platform thinking empowered organization are able to set a new rules paradigm that enables the long tail growth for the whole ecosystem. And platform-companies are channelizing a massive amount of data that needs to be analyzed, interpreted and be prepared for information extraction and valuation.
