The Platform Value Now project will focus on understanding the fast emerging platform ecosystems, their value creation dynamics and requirements of the supportive institutional environment. We will analyze ecosystems with systems tools and develop new methods for platform-centric ecosystems management. Data collection is based on active scanning of global technology and platform ecosystems and fast solution oriented case experiments with Finnish corporations and policy planners. The aim of the project is to operationalize the collected understanding into a Platform Profile framework that will enable more efficient method and tool development for ecosystem management.
