Digital Ecosystem Management

The new way to grow

In today’s digital world, growth is the big challenge - and the big opportunity.

So how do you grow in a low-growth world? By taking inspiration from the companies that are growing – not just a little, but exponentially. From Apple to Alibaba, from Amazon to Airbnb – today’s growth stars all have the same business model: they create digital platforms that manage and monetize vibrant ecosystems of consumers, producers and innovators. The secret then, is to adopt and adapt their winning ways to your business and ambitions, and we can help.

We call this Digital Ecosystem Management (DEM) and we have an all-in-one DEM solution designed to deliver the software, services and strategic advice you need to make the most of the opportunity.

At the heart of our DEM solution we have our unique, award-winning software, Infonova R6. Smart, flexible and light-touch, it fits in easily with your existing IT, so you can start using it straightaway. And it can grow with you as you develop your ecosystem.
