As one of the few strategic consultants worldwide that focus on platform business models, T-Systems MMS’ methodology expertise succeeded in convincing PRISMA. This involved using its proprietary “Platform Business Innovation Methodology” and a toolkit based on this, the “Platform Innovation Kit”. These can be used not only to develop realistic business scenarios, but also to give the customer a roadmap for implementing them. The practical method uses an integrated implementation strategy, highlights pitfalls, analyses the environment and displays macro-economic dependencies. The most promising approaches are evaluated and selected. As a result, two specific business models were drawn up, with the company being strategically positioned in the market.
