What is a platform?

A platform is any hardware or software that can be used to host or run an application or service. A typical application platform will generally include hardware, an operating system and coordinating programs, all of which will typically use the instruction set for a particular processor or microprocessor. A platform acts as a base or foundation where the object code will execute.
