    Adoption of the Platform Economy

    According to Craig Bachmann, senior director of the Open Digital program at TM Forum, an example of digital disruption in the workplace is found in the growing adoption of the platform economy. Organizations are increasingly using data from external ecosystems to offer new services. In addition to some of the more well-known platform players – such as Uber, which owns no cars, Facebook, which owns no content, and Airbnb, which owns no real estate – many smaller enterprises also offer platform-centric solutions using APIs that bring together buyers and sellers, such as in the areas of cloud services, security and privacy.

Digital disruption is using technology to transform everything about the way businesses are run and the way they interact with customers. As the experts at Epicor Software have pointed out, digital disruption isn't so much an IT project as the future of business, and this requires widespread collaboration across all units.

As Ajay Khanna, VP of Product Marketing at Reltio, explains, the digital disruption we are witnessing today started with the emergence of social, mobile and cloud computing technologies, leading to new business and economic models with a strong focus on the customer experience. It is fueled by cloud-based modern data management technologies that help companies build a reliable data foundation for better and faster data-driven decision management and become more customer-centric by having a deep understanding of their customers.
