Abstract

This case study examines the influence of the dominant party in a collaborative network. In the network of SaaSplaza, Microsoft can be identified as the dominant party. This research is based on an analysis of SaaSplaza with the Adaptive Cycle and by analyzing the changes of Microsoft with their Cloud Platform Azure. The conclusion is that their influence is so enormous that whenever the strategy and vision change, the companies in the collaborative network have to change with Microsoft’s strategy or have to create a new strategy.
