In this paper we review the academic literature regarding the concept of “Government as a Platform”, as coined by Tim O’Reilly (2011). In the context of the digital transformation of governments, the concept proposes that the state can take advantage of the organizational form of internet-based platforms to orchestrate an ecosystem of participants aiming to co-create public services and policies. In a preliminary literature review, we found convergence in the theoretical outlines of the concept, although less agreement about the ways of operationalization and its consequences.
