Exploring Value Co-Creation in Cloud Ecosystems - A Revelatory Case Study
The incentive for IT service and infrastructure providers to participate in cloud ecosystems lies in the generation of rents that cannot be generated individually by either alliance partner – i.e. the opportunity to co-create value. The IS literature on cloud ecosystems is scarce and provides only limited insights on value co-creation in cloud ecosystems. Based on an in-depth case study, we develop a framework which serves as an organizing and simplifying device explaining how value is co-created in different types of cloud ecosystems and what success factors of these dif-ferent types of cloud ecosystems are.
