[Infographic] What is a Digital Business Platform?
Despite all of today’s talk of digital transformation, most organizations don’t have the resources they need to test all of the emerging digital technologies individually, much less in typical combinations. With the rise of digital, the need for an open and pre-built platform that can aggregate and test proven technology combinations is rising.
The digital business platform (DBP) offers digital on-ramps and common journeys to digital that start with a better customer experience and allow for the gradual addition of smarter features over time. In effect, DBPs coordinate goal-directed work and support the seamless interaction of people, software, and machines in an intelligent manner.
Although a 100% complete DBP is rare in this evolving market, enterprises evaluating providers should establish their digital goals and choose a DBP architecture that best fits their needs.
