Give Your Team a Helping Hand with PaaS
Moving to the cloud has provided numerous benefits for many companies. They can be more agile and productive, initial costs are typically much lower and the users gain near-instant scalability to adjust to changing conditions. However, many organizations have overlooked the benefits of using a cloud platform for customizing software.

Platform as a Service, or PaaS, gives you a development platform that makes it easier, faster and less costly for your team to deliver business software that offers custom-made quality at off-the-shelf prices. You can control the configuration settings and deployment, but since the provider furnishes the servers, storage, networks and other related services, your capital outlay is less. You also experience savings in labor costs as your employees are free to work on projects rather than maintaining your infrastructure. Alternatively, you could choose a PaaS provider that allows you to host your software in a private data center that your IT department manages.

You can choose just the services you need the vendor to provide. For example, you can find PaaS providers who will include facilities for web service integration, application design, team collaboration, database integration, application versioning and workflow management. You also have a great deal of control over the types and levels of security that you need.

PaaS providers offer your application developers an environment that they can use with limited ramping up. Providers typically furnish a developers' kit, a sandbox for testing, operating system and automatic allocation of resources. Other services, such as automatic scaling and data integration, are available through some providers.
