Marshall Van Alstyne
Fellow of the MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy and co-author of the book "Platform Revolution", will explain the business models of giant firms like Apple, Alibaba, Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Uber. In particular: how their "network business models" allows them to create more value than the business models of traditional firms; how these new giant firms use demand economies of scale, also called "network effects"; how this inverts the functions of the firm, moving value creation from inside to outside. The shift in the source of value drives radical changes in how a firm does marketing, human resource management, operations, and strategy.
