Platform based business models increase company value by up to 4x

  •     Used by World’s 5 most value companies, 50% of top 32 global brands and 75% of fast growing unicorns. Research on S&P1500 shows it increases value by up to 4x
  •     Innovation used to be about product features and functions. It is now all about the business model - run the Amazon way. Use a B2B2x platform model to grow revenue and profits
  •     A B2B2x platform, with a powerful partner ecosystem, is essential to make sense of 5G, NFV and IoT and the use cases for the IoT powered 4th industrial revolution
  •     Carriers need now to master B2B2x platform dynamics. We explain how it will be the engine for revenue growth - creating highly valuable new products and services fit for the digital economy
