Openness of Information Resources - A Framework-based Comparison of Mobile Platforms

  title={Openness of Information Resources - A Framework-based Comparison of Mobile Platforms},
  author={Daniel Schlagwein and Detlef Schoder and Kai Fischbach},
In the smartphone sector we are discerning a competition between Symbian, Apple, and Google for the dominating mobile platform. In the design of their mobile platforms and operating system these organizations use varying degrees of “openness” on different platform elements. We follow a design science approach to construct and apply a framework to better understand how these organizations vary the degrees of openness of different information resources in order to create successful mobile… 
The openness of smartphone software platforms - A framework and preliminary empirical findings from the developers' perspective
A more sophisticated understanding of the third-party developers' individual perception of platform openness is contributed by identifying concrete facets of openness and evaluating their impact on the developers' work.
Perceived Software Platform Openness: The Scale and its Impact on Developer Satisfaction
A scale of platform openness as perceived by third-party application developers is developed and perceived platform openness is identified as a major driver of complementors’ overall satisfaction with the platform.
Platform Openness: A Systematic Literature Review and Avenues for Future Research
This paper conducts a literature review and identifies five distinct themes: measurement frameworks, implementation mechanisms, drivers for opening and closing platforms, trade-offs in designing openness, and the impact of changing openness on ecosystems.
A Comparison of Inter-Organizational Business Models of Mobile App Stores: There is more than Open vs. Closed
The business models of seven mobile app stores are analyzed with a special focus on Apple and Google and e3-value modelling - a formal business modelling technique - is used for analyzing the critical elements of these mobile ecosystems.
How open is this platform? The meaning and measurement of platform openness from the complementors’ perspective
Drawing on recently advanced scale development methodologies, this work conceptualizes PPO as a multidimensional construct and empirically validate it with important consequent variables linked to developers’ continuous platform contributions, and develops a construct called perceived platform openness (PPO).
Peripheral Motivation and Creativity in Controlled Platforms: an Analyisis Based on Facebook and iPhone Application Developers
This paper uses a questionnaire to investigate the influence of different motivation structures on output measured in lines of code and describes how intrinsic motivation, extrinsic, and willingness to take risk influence the activity of developers of Facebook and iPhone applications.
Evaluating Platform Business Models in the Telecommunications Industry via Framework-based Case Studies of Cloud and Smart Home Service Platforms
Strong similarity between platforms for enterprise cloud services is confirmed, while a dominant design of smart home platforms has not yet emerged, and complementary innovation is challenged by costly quality assurance measures imposed by the telecommunication companies.
Opening Embedded Systems for Open Innovation
The study shows that, in order to guarantee the proper functioning of their systems, ES firms tend to partition their systems in accordance to the specific requirements of ES, and systematizes the different forms of openness in ES.
The Management of Open Value Creation
The results of software-supported qualitative analysis with insights from a broad range of existing related literature to develop a concise framework that encompasses six major categories of managerial competences necessary for successful open value creation by an organization.
Letters from the War of Ecosystems – An Analysis of Independent Software Vendors in Mobile Application Marketplaces
The recent emergence of a new generation of mobile application marketplaces has changed the business in the mobile ecosystems. The marketplaces have gathered over a million applications by hundreds


Factors Affecting the Adoption of Open Systems: An Exploratory Study
A model that incorporates seven factors perceived to affect the adoption of open systems technology is developed and tested and suggests that organizations tend to focus more on their "ability to adopt" than on the "benefits from adoption," and take a "reactive" rather than "proactive" attitude in adopting open system technology.
A Resource-Based View of the Firm
Summary The paper explores the usefulness of analysing firms from the resource side rather than from the product side. In analogy to entry barriers and growth-share matrices, the concepts of resource

A note on the dynamics of learning alliances: competition, cooperation, and relative scope
Khanna, Gulati, and Nohria (1998) examine the dynamics of alliance learning and develop a conceptual framework designed to capture the tension between cooperation and competition. Based on the
Knowledge of the Firm, Combinative Capabilities, and the Replication of Technology
How should we understand why firms exist? A prevailing view has been that they serve to keep in check the transaction costs arising from the self-interested motivations of individuals. We develop in
Design Science in Information Systems Research
The objective is to describe the performance of design-science research in Information Systems via a concise conceptual framework and clear guidelines for understanding, executing, and evaluating the research.
Learning and protection of proprietary assets in strategic alliances: building relational capital
One of the main reasons that firms participate in alliances is to learn know-how and capabilities from their alliance partners. At the same time firms want to protect themselves from the
Firm Resources and Sustained Competitive Advantage
The dynamics of learning alliances: competition, cooperation, and relative scope
We show how the tension between cooperation and competition affects the dynamics of learning alliances. 'Private benefits' and 'common benefits' differ in the incentives that they create for
