Digital Business Platform (DBP)

The digital business platform (DBP) coordinates goal-directed work and supports interactions between people, software, and machines in a most intelligent manner.

Digital business platforms are the convergence of major technology streams and are extremely open so that they can serve as a cornerstone platform. DBPs are inclusive of many legacy processes and applications that have served enterprises in the past and can, in part, be leveraged in future digital solutions. The new digital solutions will include things (IoT), vast amounts of new data, new interactions or sensing, better human interaction, business and IT collaboration features, improved ecosystem connections, superior security, and a continuous stream of emerging digital technologies.

The most important difference with DBPs is that they have varying forms of intelligence and can self-adapt over time.
