Businessnatomy: The Analog Business Model

Businessnatomy : The Analog Business Model | Introduction Part 3

When evaluating business models, you have to start with the basics. You need to understand the analog perspective before you even try looking at digital business models. The traditional business models of yesterday were simpler than they are today. One of the best analogies I can give you is a personal one from my days of selling software.

Some years ago, a software company named DacEasy,…
