Thriving digital ecosystems are the foundation of the digital economy

Digital business models - today, even legacy ones - depend on digital ecosystems that bring together the many players involved at different stages on value chains. From the infrastructure that houses and brings the players together and provides a home for the data, to the IoT technology supplying the data, to the software intelligently managing digital assets and protecting the ecosystem, and on to the provision of intelligent services to end customers - tell us your story in dotmagazine!
