Digital technologies give rise to a variety of platforms. Uber matches drivers and riders. iTunes makes apps available for iPhone users.
For this assignment, please identify companies/organizations that you think have an innovative platform. Why are they innovative? Discuss the function of the platform, two or three interesting elements of the platform, and highlight the value creation of the platform. If you have room, feel free to make observations about aspects of the value capture strategy, but do not make it central.
Create an approximately 500-600 word post to make your contribution by Sunday, February 24 at 8 p.m.
Please also respond to and comment on three other posts per module. Your comments are due Monday, February 25, at 10 a.m. Feel free to use graphics, data, videos and links to other sites to corroborate your points.
Selected posts will be discussed in class and also featured on the HBS Digital Initiative website.
Please prepare a 2-3 min summary of your blog post before Monday’s class.
