As the technological foundation of a new-generation enterprise-grade PaaS platform, the technology platforms mainly include enterprise-grade native cloud platforms with GPaaS as the core and application development platforms with APaaS as the core.
GPaaS implements the core technology of a PaaS platform, and integrates and is compatible with the IaaS capability. APaaS is a set of integrated application development platforms which provides the framework and environment for integrated application development, and standard technology components and services such as business procedure management and service interface management.
An enterprise-grade PaaS requires four major capability platforms: Technology capability platform, data capability platform, business capability platform and open capability platform.
Specifically, a technology capability platform is a basic component for an enterprise to build a PaaS. At the same time, data and business are two core capabilities to enable complete integration between IT and business and empower business personnel. Openness and tolerance are essential to a platform. Therefore, an open platform centered on API management and governance is indispensable for the assembling of applications from different software suppliers.
From the perspective of operation innovation, transformation of products and services, innovative business models, cultural innovation and digital technology, digital enterprise ecosystems in the EBC era can be categorized into five major digital supporting platforms that help enterprises improve their five major digital capabilities:
Information system platform for employees, customer experience platform for customers, IoT platform for devices, ecosystem platform for cooperative partners, and intelligent data analysis platform.
