The pillars of a platform business

  • Interaction platforms such as social networks, connecting “producers” and “consumers” of posts, tweets or content in general, for example.
  • Data platforms, where the interaction between each user takes place through the generation and consumption of data that the platform coordinates. Like Waze for example.
  • And the development and infrastructure platforms that facilitate the creation of new applications, usually “on top” of existing products, such as AWS, Salesforce, IOs, Android, among others, facilitating interaction between developers and users. They often modularize the infrastructure so that businesses can scale more easily.
