Opening Keynote: How Platform Economics Can Re-Invent the Information Industry
The information industry is facing a number of global trends - disruptive technologies, big data, regulation and millennial thinking - that are challenging traditional business models of both information providers and their customers. Debra Walton, Global Managing Director, Customer Proposition, Financial & Risk at Thomson Reuters, will discuss how leveraging platform economics can help address many of these challenges by offering a new way to support customers and capitalize on partnerships. Benefits of the platform business model include business agility and speed to market, monetization of nascent assets, co-innovation and growth and re-inventing the customer experience. In addition, she will share how Thomson Reuters is building on its open platform heritage to create desktop and enterprise data platform opportunities in the financial industry that enable co-innovation and co-creation with partners and third parties.
