In competitive  markets a successful business strategy requires development of new innovative services and products to acquire a higher value for the client. Developing the new products is realized by collaboration of organizations that contribute to the added value of the service or product. The term of business ecosystem is used to better describe organizational collaboration that produces services of better value to the customer. Digital business ecosystems are counterparts of business ecosystems exploiting self-organizing properties of biological ecosystems which could include context-aware, self-organizing and scalable architectures that can be implied in solving complex problems. The present article evaluates existing technologies and protocols and proposes a set of solutions for implementing environment layer from the architecture of species that populate a digital ecosystem. We analyze the new service oriented middleware platform proposed for the modern auto vehicles, and evaluate the possibility to adopt this technology into digital ecosystems.
