Platforms

Platforms are the virtual places where people come together to buy, sell, trade, and share in the digital economy.

There are platforms for almost every type of product or service in every industry. For example, places to stay (Airbnb), rides (Lyft), information (Facebook), mobile apps (the App Store), business software, and much more.

Platforms are so critical to success that companies are tearing down and rebuilding their internal systems, processes, and organizations from the ground up to put digital at the core of their operations. This phenomenon—digital transformation—is a top priority for executives worldwide.
