Part of the Lecture Notes in Information Systems and Organisation book series (LNISO,volume 54)

Abstract

The paper briefly reveals the theoretical background of digital platforms in industry, identifies the types of platforms and their features. Challenging the dominant mode of digital platform studies that presume a global example, this paper purposely situates the platforms in regional terms. It confirmed the architecture and functionality of the digital platform in an industrial region. The Urals, the largest industrial territory of Russia, was studied as a research polygon. The purpose of the study was to prove the necessity of creating such a regional digital platform. The authors identified the prerequisites for the platform—geographical proximity of producers and buyers, a significant share of intra-regional trade, common institutional conditions. The paper presents the results of a strategic session with key stakeholders—regional authorities, industrial enterprises, R&D and investors. The authors systematized the stakeholders’ requests in order to offer the functionality of the digital platform. Currently, the project of the Urals’ industry digital platform (UIDP) is in the stage of public discussion.
