Digital Business Ecosystems

promote new and evolved e-business models, on the basis of enabling a dynamic collaborative environment for its participants. Developments in this field address the realisation that businesses are increasingly dependent on collaborative IT technologies as a source of innovation and sustainable competitive advantage, while IT is broadly viewed at a higher level of consideration so as to effectively be aligned with the business needs. The basic tenants include self-organization, discovery, co-evolution, collaboration and adaptation.

Platform & Applications

Inlecom’s Business Ecosystems Platform (i-BEP) utilises leading edge technologies developed over the last decade, with the end goal of providing business communities a digital platform and ecosystem that supports and enables conventional and next generation collaborative business applications.

Assets Sharing

The platform enables resources to be shared in real time within the business, as well as in B2B and B2C contexts (ontologies, services, APIs, data). i-BEP comprises ‘out of the box’ feature rich technologies that enable businesses and communities to create and maintain innovative collaborative environments.

Community Nodes

These environments are build and deployed as Inlecom Community Nodes (ICNs) and populated by “digital artefacts” which can include software components, digital libraries, software applications, software services, as well as associated providers and consumers.
