PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Aragon Research, a technology-focused research and advisory firm committed to providing thought-leading visual research and trusted advisory services, announced the publication of its first ever Globe report for Digital Business Platforms (DBP).

DBPs coordinate goal-directed work and support interactions between people, software, and machines in a most intelligent manner. As organizations begin to retire their legacy platforms, and as these platforms deteriorate over time, they will need to leverage a Digital Business Platform in order to support their transformation initiatives. While building a platform from scratch is a viable option, most organizations do not have the time or capital to spend on building their own, and will look to purchase one instead.

Aragon advises organizations to look for Digital Business Platforms that have: work management capabilities, smart/teachable capabilities, universal big and fast data and ecosystem linkage capabilities, machine and sensor management, reusable application function, emerging technology inclusion, and security administration.

"A critical step in choosing a Digital Business Platform is first examining which customer experiences, processes, decisions, and associated resources should be fully digital," said Jim Sinur, VP Research and Fellow at Aragon Research. "This will help organizations assess their short-term and long-term needs when evaluating DBP providers."

The 2018 Aragon Research Globe for Digital Business Platforms evaluates 27 providers in the market and overviews key trends that are fueling the growth of DBPs in the enterprise. Executive leaders should use this report as a resource as they begin their DBP selection process.

The providers evaluated in this report include Adobe, Appian, AuraPortal, Bizagi, Bonitasoft, Bosch, Cisco, GE, Genpact, Google, IBM, Intel, ITESOFT/W4, iVEDiX, K2, Kofax, Microsoft, Nintex, Nvidia, Oracle, Pegasystems, Red Hat, Salesforce, SAP, Software AG, TIBCO, and XMPro.
