Digital platforms & marketplaces

The Challenge

Today’s companies are confronted with ever more rapidly changing environments in digital commerce. Physical retail stores are losing ground to new sales models and channels. One of the key drivers for growth, considering customer engagement and experience, are digital marketplaces. The establishment and operation of direct-to-customer marketplaces is a key success factor for companies across industries. 

Our Approach

In order to successfully establish and operate a direct-to-customer marketplace, we follow a three-steps approach – strategic decisionimplementation of Business Architecture and rollout. Together with our customers, we focus on the various building blocks, which are essential to establish the Business Architecture for the marketplace, including Business Processes, Business Rules, Governance Model, among others.
