Typically we can see in software product area, there are markets consist of contents-provider-side platform and contents-browser-side platform as a set mediated by a common platform, which we call a "binding platform" (e.g. technology and specification). We propose the "Parallel Platform Market" as a conceptualization of this kind of markets. In this paper, we also theoretically derive strategies which are characteristic in the parallel platform market. Furthermore, we examine existence, effectiveness and conditions of those strategies through three case studies of parallel platform markets into which Microsoft entered as a challenger.
