Strategic Alliances in Platform Open Al Ecosystems


Joshua lgnatius英国阿斯顿大学,商学院








In the dynamic environment of open Al platforms, the presentation will dissect the multifaceted relationship between developers and platforms, focusing on integration, the challenges and prospects that arise from such an ecosystem, and the strategic decisions that developers must navigate. We anticipate and spotlight the case of a seasoned app developer, previously entrenched in providing specialized proprietary applications--an arrangement comparable to wholesale contracts. Now the developer is poised to introduce a new application intended to operate alongside the platform's proprietary offerings, situation analogous to the introduction of private-label goods within conventional retail markets. Our discourse will delve into the strategic dynamics between the developer’s distribution choices (whether to pursue direct sales or forge partnerships) and the AI platform’s propensity for sharing critical user engagement and demand data. This policy of information sharing becomes a pivotal point for discussion, influencing the developer’s market strategies and positioning within the Al platform’s ecosystem. The presentation aims to foster a rich dialogue with scholars and practitioners from the realm of supply chain contracts and coordination who are seeking to understand and transition into the domain of open Al systems. We will draw parallels to traditional supply chain mechanisms, offering potential insights into how these principles can be adapted and applied within the context of Al platforms and app development.
