Today, firms that adopt a portfolio of business models which are asset light and include network effects are perceived by investors and the market as most likely to generate future growth. They therefore have a much higher market value in comparison to companies with traditional business models. Companies who diversified their business models improved their valuation in 2016 by 65% in comparison to those who maintained a mono-business model. Furthermore, between 2011-2016 they managed to generate a growth of 8% versus 4%.

These findings are at the heart of a new digital competitiveness report developed by the BearingPoint Institute, the research arm of management and technology consultancy BearingPoint. In partnership with OpenMatters, an AI firm specializing in business models and machine learning, the report is the world’s first AI-based analysis of the top 3,500 publicly traded companies in Europe and the US from 2010-2017.

European organizations looking to compete in today’s fast moving digital economy need to understand the different business models, the fundamental role that network effect plays in the digital economy, and the overarching potential of building on open digital platforms.

Eric Falque, Partner and Global Leader of the Go Digital initiative at BearingPoint, commented:

“European leaders need to think seriously about their future in the digital economy. Optimization strategies have been the story of the past decade, but to be competitive, our research shows that new business models generate growth by benefiting from today’s network based, ecosystem and data driven models.”

Angus Ward, Partner and CEO Digital Ecosystem Management at BearingPoint, said:

“Organizations looking to maximize value in the digital economy must think like investors – reallocating their capital to change their business model portfolio and looking to include assets that are light, data-centered and involve partner ecosystem innovation. Business model change doesn’t need to be radical or high risk, there are many ways in which it can be an evolution that increases value and changes the relationship with customers.”

The study ends with a five-step approach on how businesses can adopt digital platforms with network effects and reconceive its business model. The approach can be adapted to fit any existing business model and work within any transformation program.

Price f(x) Files Petitions with US Patent and Trademark Office to Invalidate Vendavo’s Patents and Launches a Counter Lawsuit17.12.2018 07:08Pressemelding

Price f(x), the global leader in cloud pricing software, has filed petitions for “Covered Business Method (“CBM”) Review” of four Vendavo patents, and will imminently file a fifth, which together will cover challenges to all of the patent claims that Vendavo has asserted in litigation between the parties. In Price f(x)’s view, each of Vendavo’s patents qualifies for the specialized CBM procedure created by US Congress to “crackdown on low-quality business method patents.” Price f(x)’s petitions challenge Vendavo’s patents on a variety of grounds, including in all cases that the claims are directed to patent-ineligible abstract ideas (e.g., math for pricing of products), and in many cases that Vendavo simply tried to claim more than it actually invented. The petitions are now pending in the U.S. Patent Office, which should make an initial ruling on Price f(x)’s petitions in approximately six months. Price f(x) is concurrently moving to stay the patent portion of the parties’ litigation
