Digital platforms will be successful if they provide a clear value proposition to the user groups  involved. In general, digital platforms offer added-value basd upon three main mechanisms:

  • Reduction of transaction costs
  • Network effects
  • Use of data integration for new services (mainly optimisation) and business models

Based upon these mechanisms, added-value can be created in a variety of perspectives (see for instance here)
