Title: Business Platforms


1
Business Platforms
  • From Bricks to Clicks

2
Platform Concept
Platform provides services and facilities for
next level up (Eg. Payment)
Platform provides services and facilities for
next level up (Eg. Guarding)
Platform provides services and facilities for
next level up (Eg. Physical location)

Platforms of the Past
  • Gatherers didnt need a platform the natural
    world provided all the services needed.
  • Hunters required planning, some weapons and
    tools, communication, memory
  • Farmers required hunter facilities, plus
    logistics and a market place to trade

4
Business
  • Business is a unique platformed activity
  • It requires more than one individual
  • There are social and cultural processes and
    values involved
  • Historically there have been three platforms
  • Cart (business comes to customers) irregular or
    regular
  • Marketplace (customers, business convene on
    regular but not constant basis)
  • High Street or business district (customers
    come to business on regular, constant schedule)

5
Platform Needs of Business
  • Secure venue (physical, emotional)
  • Commodity services (weighing, storage)
  • Logistics services (incoming, outgoing)
  • Economic services (lending, money changing)
  • Brokerages
  • Additional services as business becomes more
    sophisticated

6
Services into Platforms
  • As these services are organized into ways they
    can be accessed and used, the loose collection
    becomes a platform
  • A platform is a structured, configurable set of
    services and facilities.
  • (Flash forward If this set is also programmable,
    never gets tired or bored, has memory and deals
    only with data we have.

E-Commerce

Intermediation
  • Business beyond the cart stage has never been
    simply the meeting of one buyer and one seller
  • Business services are needed and these require
    intermediation
  • Well use the example of the simple market place
    or market space (to move it from the geographical
    metaphor)

The Market Space
BUYER
SELLER
Owners of the market space get a fee for this
intermediation service.

SIMPLE INTERMEDIATION
9
Multiplication of Intermediaries
In the traditional marketspace, the owners
provide safety, security, standards,
replicability, recording, transportation, etc. to
increase the confidence of buyers and sellers.

Each of these represents a business opportunity
BUYER
SELLER
These complex interactions result in a hierarchy
made possible by layers of intermediation
COMPLEX INTERMEDIATION
10
Growth of Hierarchies
A more complex form of intermediation is being a
navigator among brokerages
HIERARCHY
One possibility for intermediation is brokerage
BUYER
SELLER
An even more complex form of intermediation is
trraining or consulting in how to use navigators
COMPLEX INTERMEDIATION GIVES RISE TO HIERARCHIES
11
Breaking Down of Hierarchies
The user can take over many of the intermediation
functions, resulting in dis-intermediation
hierarchies are broken down and the market space
is recreated
MARKET SPACE
Assuming the user has the tools and the skills
and the opportunities
As Internet replaces the Hierarchies of the
Market Space, the user becomes empowered

Reinstalling Hierarchies
Providers can find niches within the interstices
and reintermediate the market space,
reintroducing hierarchical structures.
MARKET SPACE
However, the complexity of the Internet creates
more interstices.

E-Commerce Business Platforms
Of course, the technology is a lower level
platform!
At this level, the platform is capable of
supporting businesses
Services might include validation, verification,
payment, financing
  • The Internet is the base service
  • The WWW and its derivatives becomes the base
    business platform
  • Additional business services are made available
    on the Web to support businesses
  • Speed, memory, etc. make it possible to change
    business models quickly, perhaps too quickly for
    some businesses

Who customers are, what products are made and
sold, how business functions
14
Revolution? Evolution!
  • The WWW is simply the latest in a series of
    business platforms
  • Its different in terms of speed, breadth of
    local (global!), programmability, flexibility,
    and media
  • Its difference is most noticeable when a
    significant number of business model terms are
    electronic or data entities
  • But it is still business
