    Abstract

    Digital platforms are disruptive IT artifacts, because they facilitate
    the quick release of innovative platform derivatives from third parties. This
    study endeavors to unravel the disruptive potential, caused by distinct designs
    and configurations of digital platforms on market environments. We postulate
    that the disruptive potential of digital platforms is determined by the degree of
    alignment among the business, technology and platform profiles. Furthermore,
    we argue that the design and configuration of the aforementioned three
    elements dictates the extent to which open innovation is permitted. To shed
    light on the disruptive potential of digital platforms, we opted for digital
    payment platforms as our unit of analysis. Through interviews with experts and
    payment providers, we seek to gain an in-depth appreciation of how
    contemporary digital payment platforms are designed and configured to foster
    open innovation. We envision that this study bridges existing knowledge gaps
    between digital platform and open innovation literature.
