Digital platforms and the platrformization of conventional businesses have become the drivers of change in rules of the game as the type of interactions between the stakeholders of a platform, i.e., technology developers, technology owners, complementors, users, and the governments, can differ from the conventional businesses. Platform stakeholders must set and/or follow new regulations, including new regulations concerning data privacy and service availability. Such regulations impose paradoxical requirements, for instance, to control data accessibility and integrity while ensuring its availability. The regulations have critical implications for technology, organization, strategy, and business policy. This project aims to provide a first-hand understanding of the platform stakeholders' trade-offs between privacy and performance and how the trade-offs vary over digital platform's life cycles.
