The World Economic Forum’s Digital Transformation Program have today published their report outlining the next-generation of business models. The report provides a comprehensive guide on digital marketplaces highlighting the requirements for businesses to proactively leverage the opportunities presented by online marketplaces or to risk being left behind by those who already are.
This guidebook provides directional guidance on the value and complexity of digital business models and a deep dive on marketplaces. Some companies have taken a leap forward in expanding their business model to own and operate marketplaces. This allows multiple buyers to connect to several sellers. These companies are leveraging their unique knowledge and capabilities to solve industry- or market-specific problems while generating broader value for the ecosystem and society.
The objective of this guidebook is to provide a framework to help executives assess marketplace fit and better understand characteristics for success.
