Whether it is the vibrant consumer Internet era or the emerging industrial Internet, all the entrants talk about ecology. Even in the field of flexible employment recently investigated by the author, although the industry is full of thorns and policies are not clear, players from all walks of life are also carrying the vision of building an ecosystem, one special database after another. So what exactly is ecology? Its original definition refers to the living and developing state of organisms in a certain natural environment, and also refers to the physiological characteristics and living habits of organisms.
Simply put, it is the living state of all living things, and the interlocking relationship between them and the environment. Under these complex "connection" relationships, only by maintaining the balance between various elements and creating a growth special database environment that can be recycled, can it be called ecology and the added value generated by ecology can be expected. For example, Xiaomi's ecological business, which has been well-received by our reputation, is actually a product thinking centered on users, extending the relevance of lifestyle and consumption scenarios around users.
Whether it is provided by suppliers or jointly developed, these products are organically integrated. And interconnection, that is, to build an ecosystem. In this ecology, what products can grow tomorrow, even Xiaomi can hardly imagine. In turn, this is like the ecological circle of the biological world. What kind of new things are produced between species through hybridization, grafting, etc.? It's all imaginative and unknown. Therefore, ecology has special database become a must-have attribute of all Internet products for a while. Without ecological design thinking, it means losing the ability to "connect", thereby losing the integration with various technologies, and gradually being eliminated.
