Platform as a Service

What is Platform as a Service?

Platform as a Service (PaaS) is a cloud-computing service that provides a platform for users to develop, test, run and manage their applications without investing in infrastructure associated with developing and maintaining an app. This deployment environment in the cloud enables you to deliver both simple cloud-based applications and sophisticated enterprise applications.

When Should a Business Consider PaaS?

Custom Cloud Based Frameworks. PaaS allows developers to focus on building custom apps without the stress of maintaining infrastructure and operating systems. Developers will have access to tools, servers and programming environments via the cloud. Without the expense of creating them in-house, organizations can benefit from apps being developed and hosted at a significantly lower setup cost. PaaS allows your developers to focus on the quality of their work and not on the maintenance of their IT infrastructure.

Current Development Tools. Development tools are constantly evolving to meet the needs and demands of the current tech environment. Businesses are looking for solutions to help cut costs, improve processes and increase efficiencies. PaaS ensures your developers have access to current development tools that are utilizing the latest technology and are running at peak performance.

Business Intelligence. PaaS includes tools that enable businesses to analyze and comprehend their data. Mining through the data collected, they can find insights, patterns and can begin to build reliable projections to help inform business decisions.

Benefits of PaaS

Reduce Time Spent on Projects.

PaaS can help developers cut time spent on coding new apps with pre-coded application components built within the platform. Developers can incorporate automated coding that replaces previous manual steps, reducing time to market dramatically.

Instant Response.

PaaS also allows immediate response. With automated deployment individuals can benefit from deploying changes instantly and with automated scaling, your team is able to respond to an influx faster and more efficiently.

Reduce Cost.

Upfront costs are significantly reduced with PaaS. Capital costs spent on quickly depreciating IT assets are replaced with operational costs that are balanced with the businesses ROI.
