The internet and the platform economy change the way in which consumers buy products and services and it also will change the way companies do business with one and other. For sure, E-commerce will have an impact on the way we operate our global businesses, rather sooner than later. Are our business models up-to-date or do they need to be redesigned? How do other companies in a B2B environment deal with this phenomenon and what do their business models look like? How can we be successful in a connected world and still be relevant to our customers? Two consultants specialized in digital business transformation will touch on different horizons of e-commercialization. We like to offer you a unique opportunity to share valuable insights on market trends, digital platforms and underlying technologies.
