Platforms play a critical role in today’s business ecosystem. To help you discover how they can transform the way you do business, we have dedicated the new issue of Dassault Systèmes’ corporate thought-leadership magazine, Compass, to Platform Business in the Age of Experience.
Across five articles in the cover section, we look at the rise of platform models. While platforms first took hold in the Business to Consumer space – starting in the 1990s with companies like Facebook, Apple, Google and Amazon – Business to Business platforms are rising fast. Technology consultancy Frost & Sullivan predicts that B2B platform commerce could rake in sales of US $6.7 trillion by 2020, double the amount it projects for B2C business. Compass explores what this might mean for businesses and consumers alike.
The issue is full of articles on other topics too, such as:
- While CEOs are prioritizing innovation to drive growth, why are many becoming more externally focused in their innovation efforts?
- How are female educators inspiring women to study for and succeed in engineering careers?
- What actions are consumer packaged goods companies taking to attract today’s consumers who are increasingly focused on health and sustainability?
