Les modèles d'affaires qui émergent aujourd’hui offrent l'image d'une hyperconcurrence. Dans l'économie numérique, il y a toujours mieux et moins cher ailleurs, et cette dynamique déborde aujourd'hui les frontières du Net. Comment une entreprise peut-elle survivre dans cette jungle, comment peut-elle se distinguer? De nouvelles logiques émergent, de nouvelles propositions de valeur qui pourraient devenir la clé du monde économique de demain.
Business models that emerge today outline a world of hyper-competition: in the digital economy, it's always possible to find both better and cheaper elsewhere. Now, this tendency is spreading beyond the borders of the Net. How can a company survive in this ruthless world? How can it possibly stand out from others? New trends are emerging, new value proposals that could become the cornerstone of tomorrow's economy.
