This study addresses stakeholder perceptions in Platform as a Service (PaaS) ecosystems. Inherent in the platform strategy is dependence between those stakeholders that own the platform and those supplying the added functionality. This is investigated through an in-depth case study of a one ERP Vendor’s implementation of a platform strategy. Through employing the technology of app stores, the vendor intends to shift from delivering software as a service (SaaS) to PaaS. The study identifies and discusses relational issues impacted by the new business model emerging from the platform strategy. The results show that the introduction of a platform strategy brings with it the threat of restructuring the business model and power relationships nested in the ecosystem. This is discussed from a platform governance perspective.
