1. Summary

In recent months many have focused on PaaS solutions as an enabling technology to bring more control to the development and deployment of cloud-based applications and business processes.

This piece highlights some of the developments that are, in our opinion, critical to any organization that wants to prepare itself for using PaaS providers to bring lower costs and greater efficacy to development operations. Here we will focus on the practical uses of PaaS technology for the enterprise, as well as how to move from an existing application-development technology to the use of PaaS solutions. Finally, we will discuss how to make sense of the emerging PaaS market and players as well as critical recommendations that will increase the chances of success in moving to PaaS technology.
