The demand for new digital implementations that differentiate organizations is rising quickly, which has created a fertile environment for the growth of Digital Business Platforms (DBPs). DBPs coordinate goal-directed work and support the smooth interaction of people, software, and machines in a most intelligent manner. Hot Vendors in the emerging Digital Business Platform market are addressing these needs in an incremental fashion but may not have all of the functionality now.
In this research note, VP Jim Sinur defines the five major technical tributaries that a DBP must combine to create a cornerstone technology base to support the changing nature of business and the work that supports digital business. While a 100% complete DBP is rare in this early market, this research note shows promising players that either are aimed at becoming a complete DBP in the future or perform one aspect of a DBP very well right now.
