  1. 1. Defining valuein the FutureInternet Simon Delaere IBBT-SMIT, Vrije Universiteit Brussel FinES Workshop, FIA Aalborg, 9 May 2012
  2. 2. About us IBBT – Interdisciplinary Institute for Broadband Technology – funded by Flemish government, 1000 researchers in # groups across # Flemish universities IBBT-SMIT: Founded in 1990, based in Brussels, part of IBBT’s Digital Society Department Specialising in socio-scientific research on media/ICT Currently some 60+ researchers Combination of quantitative and qualitative methods for  User research  Policy analysis  Business modelling 2
  3. 3. Main messages Apples are not pears It’s not only about numbers It matters for FI and FinES 3
  4. 4. 1. Apples are not pears 15/05/2012 4
  5. 5. Context matters Technological determinism vs interdisciplinary approach Research is about technology, but technology is void without knowing about  How it is regulated  How it may be used/how it is actually used  How value can actually be created Value is a hetereogeneous concept  What is invaluable to one is worthless to the next  What is worthless now may be priceless tomorrow  Value creation and capture is a strategic configuration process 5

  16. 16. 2. It’s not only about the numbers 15/05/2012 16
  17. 17. Of course numbers are important Quantitative evaluation is necessary  Cost-efficient research = cost-efficient technologies  Business Case construction is a crucial step  Many FI technologies promise reduction in CAPEX/OPEX, but what do they deliver? But it is often too early to ask  Infrastructure, element cost, uptake unknown  Competition/complementarity with legacy tech unclear  Macro, meso and micro economic factors And it is still research  Does it make sense to ask detailed, confidential exploitation plans in a STREP? Cost and revenue are just two strategic considerations 17
  18. 18. Business Models as configuration of controland value 18
  19. 19. The rise of platforms 19
  20. 20. Platforms are emerging everywhere… ISSUER MNOTSM 15/05/2012 20

  22. 22. Rising questions Platform dynamics: multi-sided markets Dynamic and complex competition processes between large number of platforms or platform wannabes Importance of technological configurations, interoperability, openness, bundling and adding features Greater scope for variety of platform and non-platform strategies Abstract and static conceptions of ‘platforms’ need to be replaced by analysis of changing boundaries of platforms, various levels of integration and control, different types of platform business models Regulation not equiped for dealing with platorms 22

Actor – Actor Interaction (MAA) On the other hand, the Divergence graph shows that the BO IO EU DM ASP WNONetwork Operators (BO, WNO) and Infrastructure Owner(IO) are in clear divergence with each other: firstly, because BOofIOthe Operator-Independent strategy employed by theInfrastructure Owner and secondly because of the direct EUinteraction between the Infrastructure Owner and the DeviceManufacturer, which in more Operator-Centric models were DMmediated and managed by the Network Operator. Since we ASPadopt an Operator-Independent strategy, adopting Operator- WNOCentric or 3rd Party-Centric Models can yield entirelydifferent sets of convergences and divergences amongst theactors. Ecosystem Convergence & Divergence WNO – BO: converge and diverge on all issues IO – (WNO+BO): diverge because of Operator Independent Business Model involved.

  27. 27. FI-PPP needs business assessment Ambitious programmes linking FI underlying infrastructure to concrete application domains Both generic enablers and resulting applications need to be tested for business impact IBBT’s role  IBBT chairs Exploitation and Business Modelling working group within FI-PPP (through CONCORD)  Established 22 February 2012  Objectives  provide internal (FI-PPP) and external (FP7-CIP) insights into Future Internet exploitation plans and business models; and,  support the FI-PPP projects’ individual exploitation and business modelling efforts.  First F2F meeting at this moment 27

  30. 30. How about the value of enterprise solutions? Future Internet may open new roads to value for enterprises, both competing and collaborating Value can be created by  Infrastructure  Data  Platforms IBBT is working on all these topics PPP concept changes very concept of value 15/05/2012 30
