Software ecosystems are increasingly involving multiple companies to collaboratively propose value for an end user. When planning a joint solution however, there are challenges for companies. In this paper, we study the experience of joint solution planning in three different kinds of ecosystem settings, highlighting the nature of collaboration and the challenges that arise. The results suggest that the key challenges are not of a technological nature, but instead concern the process of value creation and collaboration.
