Original idea of a Platform component: Platform components can take the form of software applications (desktop or web-based) for human users or web services. A service may provide data (a data service), some kind of transformation (a transformation service), validation of data (validation service), or other data processing"

For a richer textual description of the planned components please read the platform design draft.
