Feature: Ecosystem
Publisher

Share valuable ecosystem insights

As an ecosystem lead or analyst, publishing your ecosystem allows to share insights about your ecosystem, to inspire stakeholders to continue contributing to the ecosystem and to crowdsource further data that is relevant to complete the map of your ecosystem.

With the capability to crowdsource data, the ecosystem will grow organically. In a public ecosystem, individual ecosystem actors can update their company data or they can add their company to the ecosystem. To ensure the quality and relevance of the data and the added companies, the data are curated. Combined with the option to personalize the ecosystem, DataScouts allows to clearly communicate the identity of your ecosystem.


Collective Ecosystem Intelligence

In order to crowdsource company data and to build collective ecosystem knowledge, DataScouts offers the option to publish an ecosystem and invite individual actors to join the ecosystem, to claim or add their organisation and to maintain their company profile.

  • “discover”, i.e. the digital version of your ecosystem is publicly available, (registered) visitors can click through the different views and layers of information provided.
  • “contribute”, i.e. the digital version of your ecosystem is publicly available, (registered) visitors can explore the ecosystem and are invited to join and contribute to the ecosystem resulting in the organic growth of your ecosystem.

To ensure the quality and relevance of the data and the added companies, DataScouts offers the capability to curate the data. As owner of the ecosystem, you own the relationship with your members.


Ecosystem Branding

DataScouts offers a couple of options to personalize your ecosystem and clearly communicate the identity of an ecosystem.

  • Upload your logo.
  • Describe the purpose of the ecosystem and the stakeholders.
  • Describe the data sources and contributors to collecting company data.

By personalizing the ecosystem, the goal of the ecosystem can be clearly communicating as well as the identity.


Curate Data

The danger of publishing an ecosystem is losing the representativeness of the ecosystem. The capability to curate newly added information is included in DataScouts:

  • In order to guarantee that newly added actors belong to the ecosystem.
  • In order to verify that newly added information is correct.

With an open ecosystem, the owner can accept or reject (i.e. curate) new entrants to the ecosystem. The ecosystem owner can alter existing actor data, or completely remove the actor from the ecosystem.
