Competition will change
If you think you know your competition, think again. Today you typically compete with your products against the products of a number of companies that look like you. More and more, you will need to compete against ecosystems of products. These new competitors do not necessarily look like you, they might have completely different business models and different size.
The competitive landscape might change fast. You need to stay flexible. Keep your options open.
Focus on your strengths, partner on all the other aspects. This is what ecosystems allow you to do. But how to build them? This is the subject of this book.
The Digital Ecosystems Book is a practical book, that helps you to conceptually understand ecosystems, identify ecosystem patterns, and most of all, helps you develop and build digital ecosystems.
The connections between the ecosystem partners are the central piece. In digital ecosystems, these connections are realized by APIs. We study in detail, how APIs need to be built for the best possible effectiveness.
The Digital Ecosystems Book will become available in Fall 2019. Stay tuned.
The API-University Series is a modular series of books on API-related topics. Each book focuses on a particular API topic, so you can select the topics within APIs, which are relevant to you.
