The Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud service model has a lot of benefits for enterprise users. Some “legacy” enterprise apps will not fit this model, but surprisingly, a number can be transitioned to and managed from a PaaS.
Moving forward, building applications on a PaaS, that abstract away much of the hardware management involved in an Infrastructure-as-a-Service offering, can simplify your developers processes. This increased focus on what matters should translate to faster testing and deployment.
Finally, consider how the now ubiquitous containers are changing application development and providing a twist on standard PaaS systems, the Container-as-a-Service approach. Want more details?
