Networks: The New Model for Business
A BriefingsDirect Podcast
In this podcast, Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions, explores the role and impact of business networks.
Today's consumer business models – exemplified by Amazon, Uber, and Airbnb – are extending to B2B commerce, allowing buyers and sellers to find and know each other openly and accelerate transactions and commerce efficiencies.
Now business networks are making it possible for companies to extend processes and insights broadly and affordably to customers, suppliers, and other partners, and companies are able to engage across networks in new and innovative ways.
Gardner discusses with his guests the trends that are making business networks more powerful and more important than ever.
