Digital platform development: A service-oriented perspective. Complete Research
Umeå University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Informatics.
2015 (English)Conference paper, (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The traditional view of value is largely rooted in the material properties of physical goods. However, service-dominant logic tells us that value is not imbued in goods, but derived in its judicious application. A contextually bounded nature of value is highly relevant for the study of digital platforms given the reprogrammable nature of digital technology coupled with a necessity to serve several different stake-holders and applications. This paper applies servitization as a theoretical framework for illustrating the subjective and transitory value propositions that influence platform development. Based on a case study of a firm that has transitioned from product supplier to provider of a platform for digital services, it is evident that value propositions are ambivalent, yet vital components in the evolution of platforms. Fur-thermore, we may discern that platform providers are faced with value propositions that are multidi-rectional, multidimensional, and offered from a variety of sources.
