Ecosystems 2.0 – XI

Ecosystems 1.0 … just happened. Most of the time they are seeded by a successful product and by interfaces (communications) third parties can leverage to add value. The seeding company over time will increase the interfaces thus stimulating more and more players to step in and participate, thus expanding the …

Ecosystems 2.0 – X

In the previous posts I discussed the growth of ecosystems, how they can form and the roles of the different players in the set up, growth and exploitation of an ecosystem. In a nutshell: the Digital Transformation mirrors atoms into bits (through sensors and communication fabric) letting companies to operate …

Ecosystems 2.0 – IX

The shift to the cyberspace and the ever growing “leverage” on data made possible, as I discussed in the last post, by aggregators that create context and meaning is fuelling the rise of a multitude of small companies forming a digital ecosystem around data. Think about the gazillion of apps …

Ecosystems 2.0 – VIII

Data are created by sensors and aggregated by the company (institution) that has an interest in those data (and probably owns/deployed the sensors). Data creation, as noted, is a fall out of the Digital Transformation, companies digitise their environment and create data that are used by them and can be …

Ecosystems 2.0 – VII

Having said that data are the communication infrastructure we (and industry) use to communicate there is the obvious issue of who can ensure the ownership and take accountability for the data. Take the example of an election. More and more it is not about listening to a candidate, rather it …

Ecosystems 2.0 – VI

When I started using internet, some 30+ years ago, the paradigm was to use connectivity to access data. Web 2.0, and now 3.0, plus Digital Transformation turned this paradigm upside down. Now we use data to be connected. It is the triumph of asynchronous communications over synchronous comm. This does …

Ecosystems 2.0 – V

I stated that data are a crucial part of the Digital Transformation and in the previous posts I discussed how to transform atoms into bits. For most of the last two decades, with very few exception, many companies and institutions have generated data and accrued them but the goal has …

Ecosystems 2.0 – IV

Data are a central part of Digital Ecosystems and the Digital Transformation is the tools for shifting the focus from objects to data. As shown in the picture we have a growing number of technologies that can be used to mirror objects in data (sensors) and to identify objects so …

Ecosystems 2.0 – III

5. Discontinuity A species does not evolve in a blink of an eye. Actually, it would not be possible! Think of a random DNA change (this is what happens in evolution) that would create a new living thing that is of a “different species” a brand new one. By definition …

Ecosystems 2.0 – II

Notice: this post series draws on the Digital Transformation course prepared by EIT Digital and IEEE FDC. If you are interested in getting an in depth view and/or if you want to understand how to apply these concept to your business contact EIT Digital if based in the 28 European …
