Business ecosystems from empirical and conceptual perspectives
I am interested complex, multi-actor business networks such as business ecosystems. With Sami Hyrynsalmi and Arho Suominen, we have examined application developers’ multi-homing strategies in mobile application ecosystems. Link to the paper here
In addition, I have examined business ecosystems from a more conceptual vantage point. We have compared business ecosystems with other concepts used to describe business networks to make sense of the features that characterise business ecosystems. Link to the paper here
