The basic premise of this platform is the SLG [Solid-Liquid-Gas] principle where solid refers to the data structure comprising big data, this element includes both data science and intelligent data; today we call this machine learning. Liquid or the Logic layer is a ‘data handshake’ between the solid and liquid layers, where robots (RPA), AI, automation, SaaS apps, DevOps, chatbots and other smart software retrieve information from an ocean of intelligent data. This handshake is necessary to translate the raw data so it can be interpreted by applications to create an experience for a specific medium. Finally the Gas or the Experience layer denotes the information translated by the logic, moulded by the applications to take the form of whatever container you put them in, much like gaseous matter. Now, what was once solid, formless data can be interpreted by the software of its container and displayed on phones, tablets, desktop computers, smart watches, IoT devices, the cloud, virtual reality, augmented reality and more.
