Abstract

This paper explores platform strategies along the business ecosystem lifecycle (BELC), based on a multiple-case study. Developing observations on platform strategies from a firm level to a business ecosystem level, the study investigates the issue of platform strategy through three views, respectively technology, application and organisation. As a result, a general evolutional pattern of platform strategy along the BELC is identified, where an open strategy emerges at the Birth and Expansion phases, then a dominating strategy rises at the Authority phase, and finally the opportunistic strategy takes over at the Renewal phase. This paper connects the core firms in the business ecosystem with the evolutionary platform strategies.
