Partnerships & sourcing
The industry value chain is complex. It generally involves at the very least the following functions
- A moving object vendor, e.g. a car OEM,
- A hardware supplier, e.g. Blackberry,
- A software supplier, e.g. Networks in Motion,
- A content supplier, e.g. Via Michelin,
- A connectivity supplier, i.e. Telenor,
- A service provider, e.g. Norwich Union.
Obviously, there are multiple possible sourcing and partnership arrangements for a given solution. You want a partnership structure that is
- Fast to put together,
- Robust and sustainable,
- Economically viable for all players.
Successful companies will obviously generate enormous savings, strategic and commercial advantages by making the right decisions.
