Industry 4.0: Core technologies
Traditional product mindset must be replaced by an IoT mindset:
predictive approach in satisfying needs; continuous optimization and
refresh of products; leverage of ecosystems; information convergence, …

Wide platforms
“…to be the world’s first digital industrial company”
Enterprise PaaS delivered to developers and possibly partners
and business customers.

Multi-sided market logic

Narrow platforms

Roles in platforms (I)

•  Platform enabler (wide-narrow)
•  Engager of customers providing products or services
•  Platform enhancer

Roles in platforms (II)

•  Connecting actors such as LinkedIn
•  Sharing resources such as AirBnB
•  Integrating systems such as
& 3d party developers
New market practices
New pricing models
•  Freemium: One side subsidizes other side
•  Adobe: content provider pays
•  SampleLab: free store
•  Compensate: Give away content but sell products or services
•  Selling information (besides products or services) or intermediate info sharing

Servitization of markets: (examples)

•  Repair before failure
•  Uptime selling, Product as a service
Scale network effects
•  Performance based contracts
•  Costs fall with scale
•  Renting or sharing rather than selling
•  But also value increases
•  …and the ‘product’ changes
Industry 4.0 in a broader context:
Conclusions part 1
q  Industry 4.0 impacts every industry: Tech challenges,
Market challenges, Societal challenges, Platform
q  We have to transform industries and companies, i.e.,
strategically re-invent ‘everything’
q  We will not be able to do it on our own, i.e., we need

What’s your industry recipe?
Basic perspectives regarding roles of each chain level

Basic perspectives on industry mission and scope

Shared views on relevant key success factors

Typical organization structures and industry/company routines

Typical expectations concerning the role of suppliers

Matthyssens, P., K. Vandenbempt and L. Berghman (2006)

Breaking industry recipes
Examples from the studied industries:

Price as primary competitive weapon

Efficiency and scale focus

Technology focus

Limited willingness to invest in R&D

Reactive behaviour

Tough power play in the chain (downstream!)

Some service addition but not highly valued

Matthyssens, P., K. Vandenbempt and L. Berghman (2006)

Say the Color and not the word
Routines block our minds
Barriers to new value creation
•  Initiation:
•  ‘closed thinking’, trapped in industry logic
•  dominance of technicality
•  operational > strategic thinking
•  Realization:
•  existing partner relations
•  routines and actual competences
•  limited support top management and ‘executors’
•  Capturing:
•  lack of credibility
•  customers’ service for free attitude
•  poor business case
Value innovation imperatives

What to do when developing new fields? Mobilize others!
NxtPort have selected Microsoft, Nallian and Proximus as their partner for
delivering, setting up and operating the NxtPort platform.
Nallian's Data Sharing Platform and its deep experience in collaboration in complex
data sharing-based communities, married to the broad technical infrastructure offering
from Microsoft and Proximus' experience in building developer marketplaces and
integrating IoT data, form a unique team that will support NxtPort in this exciting and
innovative project.
Formulating a network mobilization strategy for
•  Identification: Who are the relevant stakeholders in the industry or new field?
•  Perception: How do they perceive the new value concept? By what value
attributes are stakeholders triggered. Do they differ in these?
•  Reception: How ‘receptive’ are the different stakeholders regarding the new
value concept? How ‘sophisticated’ is their cognitive appreciation and how
enthusiastic are they (affective appreciation).
•  Mobilization: How can one mobilize and align the network and overcome

Started as marketing problem, but turned out to be a sociological one…

•  PM requires a new health care value system and a new field, but stakeholders are politicized
and their identification in the regular stakeholder analyses is too reactive and one-dimensional;
•  It is also unclear who is relevant and can act as… intermediaries to help developing the new field;
•  How can the credibility gap be overcome and legitimacy be created? (indirect influence paths and power games)
The network mobilizer needs to gain insight in moral and cultural drivers of key influencers;
•  Insight into perceptions and meaning systems leads to a different understanding of the problem round which the
mobilization occurs (neglected in ST); mobilizers lack this insight and cannot translate into value offerings for each
