Summaries of papers

Balancing platform control and external contribution in third‐party development

The paper introduces a new general model for understanding the design of boundary resources. The model provides a solid theoretical foundation to examine platform ecosystems where a platform owner develops boundary resources designed to be used by third party application developers.

The model describes the process of designing boundary resources as a balancing act between two conflicting forces. Resourcing and securing. Resourcing is the process of expanding the scope/diversity/access to the platform, this makes it possible for third-party developers to develop applications with new functionality. Securing is the process of controlling/limiting the use of the platform. This limits the possibilities of third-party developers, and is used by the platform owner to control third party developers with conflicting(to the platform owner) interests.

The case study of apple from the paper identifies 4 different manifestations of these two concepts. 1 - Self-resourcing is when third party application developers take matters into their own hands. They circumvent the boundary resources created by the platform owner to gain direct access to the platform. This leads to third party developers creating their own frameworks and interfaces, and leaves the platform owner with no control of the access to their platform. Self-resourcing is an indicator of too much securing (too restrictive), and not enough resourcing in the design of the boundary resources.

2 - Diversity-resourcing is when the platform owner enhances the existing boundary resources. Either proactively to draw in more application developers, and allow for more diverse applications, or reactively in response to feedback from third party developers.

3 - regulated-securing is a form of securing that restricts the possibilities of third party developers by imposing regulations on the use of the boundary resources. The third party developers have to follow the regulations to gain access to the boundary resources of the platform.

4 - Sovereignty securing is a specific form of securing where the goal is to remove/keep away other parties (4th parties) from the platform ecosystem. An example of this would be a different platform making use of the boundary resources of the platform owner. This adds a layer between the original platform owner and their third-party developers, which makes the original platform owner dependent on a different platform (4th party) to some degree.
