Everyone from Harvard Business Review to TechCrunch has extolled the virtues of the platform model, and why platforms are good strategies for software companies. But why are platforms good for the users of that software?
The answer is simple: platforms allow for faster innovation, and more of it. When developers and service providers build on a platform, they can provide a customized experience for their clients and create solutions to solve users’ unique problems. The Relativity Innovation Awards celebrate this type of innovation, highlighting what you can do when you have technology that's flexible enough to solve any problem you encounter.
