Geoffrey Parker, professor of management science, published “Platform Envelopment” in the December 2011 issue of Strategic Management Journal. In the article, Parker and co-authors Marshall Van Alstyne and Thomas Eisenmann describe the “envelopment attack” strategy for platform-market entry, in which a provider in one platform market incorporates the functionality of a provider in another platform market into its own product to harness network effects across platform user bases. Apple’s iPhone/iPad platform, for example, envelops providers in a number of different platform markets, including personal digital assistants, handheld games and e-book readers. In the article, Parker and his colleagues analyze conditions under which envelopment attacks are likely to succeed.
