Data Practices in Digital Ecosystems: Implications for Value Creation, Competition and Regulation

Event Description

The Digital Markets Competition Forum initiative at CBS, directed by prof. Carmelo Cennamo, invites you to partake in a virtual roundtable discussion on “Data Practices in Digital Ecosystems: Implications for Value Creation, Competition and Regulation” on October 21, 6:00 pm CET / 12:00 pm ET / 9:00 am PST. The event is hosted by Facebook and CBS Business in Society Platform Digital Transformations.

The workshop will explore the role of data for the functioning of digital ecosystems, data practices for value creation and capture, and policy implications by discussing the following issues:
  • How do data work, really? How are data created and used? How do data create value?
  • Open vs. closed data: implications for (economic) value and (societal) values
  • Data practices in the digital economy: what’s good, what’s bad, and why? 
  • Proposed regulatory interventions range from curbing data collection and usage to mandating data access: Do these make sense and on which basis - economic value, innovation, competition?
Invited experts will present short interventions which will be commented by discussants. A short Q&A session will follow.

The Digital Markets Competition Forum is a new initiative to enhance the dissemination of Strategy and Innovation research, and its practical relevance in the context of the digital economy. Led by Professor (with special responsibilities) Carmelo Cennamo, the DMC Forum’s main objective is to foster a progressive debate on the role of digital platforms in the economy and the new competitive forces in digital markets. In particular, the DMC Forum aims to:
  • bridge academic research and the practice of management in (and of) digital markets;
  • promote the dissemination of management research on digital platforms, ecosystems and competition and innovation in digital markets;
  • reach out to policymakers, firms, and stakeholders at large to discuss the opportunities (for innovation and value creation) as well as the challenges associated with digital platforms and digital markets, including the implications for the regulatory framework.
