PaaS: The New Effective Cloud-Based Tool
Working with cloud-based tools is an efficient and productive way to operate. Enterprises today are choosing to work in the cloud – not just to save space in the server room, but also to provide employees with more options to work where they want, when they want and how they want. However, the question remains, why choose a Platfrom-as-a-Service (PaaS) as opposed to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), or an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)?
The market has been in great demand for SaaS cloud-based delivery model, but what about a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) that provides organizations with an additional option to working in the cloud. It delivers the ability to design, develop and deploy enterprise-class business applications quickly and cost effectively. IT departments of all sizes, independent consultants and third-party developers can leverage a PaaS scalable infrastructure, which is a new flexible and powerful development tool.
Info.Apps.Gov differentiates infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions from PaaS, describing IaaS as the capability provided to the consumer for provision processing, storage, networks, and other fundamental computing resources where the consumer is to deploy and run arbitrary software, and SaaS is the capability provided to the consumer to use the provider’s applications running on a cloud infrastructure. A structured PaaS, such as AppBase, is aimed at companies looking to conveniently build custom cloud applications with the use of a template as a starting point, or build an application from scratch, without any coding required and handles the back-end details automatically.
The overall use of a PaaS solution is to provide users with a simple cloud-based tool that empowers employees, increases productivity, and results in greater job satisfaction. According to a recent study by MarketsandMarkets, the platform-as-a-service market will continue to grow in popularity and is estimated to grow from $1.28 billion in 2013 to $6.94 billion in 2018. The success and increased use of PaaS software is a result of the implementation and adoption process being simple, convenient, and affordable for companies of all sizes.
