The first platform is that of the mainframe and the terminals. The second platform brought the client-server model with personal computers, local area networks and the Internet.

On a personal note: it’s around the time of the evolution from the first to the second platform that our roots lie, in the overlap of both worlds.

In 2011 IDC stated that we shift to the third platform. Sure, client-server models still exist but again we’re seeing a transition.

It’s probably the transition most of the people who read this have known. The third platform consists of various so called pillars: mobile, big data/analytics, cloud and social technologies.

Toward the second half of the forecast period (2020–2021), the number of projects being implemented and administered that combines the 3rd Platform or digital technologies, such as innovation accelerators including the Internet of Things (IoT) that utilizes the 3rd Platform or cognitive and artificial intelligence (AI) systems, will grow in order to realize DX. "IT service vendors are currently building organizations to support digital transformation (DX) in combination with each technology component, changing traditional organizations in which the 3rd Platform and innovation accelerators are developed separately.

However, transitioning from the current situation optimized for the 2nd Platform will not be easy. With that in mind, building such frameworks that include rating systems and human resource development will be an important first step for DX implementation services, toward achieving growth in the IT services for the 3rd Platform market," said Takuya Uemura, senior market analyst, IT Services, KMI Japan.
