3 responses to “More on Level 4 Platforms”

    What seems, to me, to be missing here is the possibility that there are multiple Level 3 platforms that offer high-leverage internal APIs while also enabling open protocols to interact with other systems and resources.

    There could be interaction at the level of the application environment (application integration) and also at the level of the user interface (the simple mashup), as suggested by the figure at http://wiki.apexdevnet.com/images/b/be/Level3Openness.gif

    There’s no reason why a Level 3 platform can’t offer the rapid time to market of its own high-leverage facilities while still letting developers exploit other facilities, or hedge their bets by reserving some of their code base to run in another environment.
