Vinod Ramchandra Jadhav On What Every Enterprise Manager Needs to Know About PaaS

PaaS and Enterprise Management

If you’re an enterprise manager, you’ll already understand digital products have altered the way successful entrepreneurs do business. Cloud computing revolutionized business models, disrupting traditional markets and generating enormous profits for small to medium-sized companies. Do you watch with dismay or feel inspired to lead the digital transformation of a modern and future enterprise?

If you’re buzzed by the possibilities rising on the digital horizon, you’re in a good place. There’s never been a better and more cost-effective time to innovate. Innovation used to be expensive, time-consuming, and high-risk. With current cloud technologies, the tables have turned. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) allows you to take advantage of significant cost efficiencies, increase IT automation, and test new products and services with lightning speed and efficiency.

What is Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)?

The costs of managing the complex infrastructure needed when you’re creating, developing, and executing multiple applications can soon become a millstone around the neck of any fast-moving startup or small to medium-sized enterprise. On-premise infrastructure and support is both an expensive capital outlay and a high on-going running cost. PaaS takes all of that off your hands and into the cloud. You can think of PaaS as the bridge between the more commonly deployed IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) and SaaS (Software-as-a-Service).

While IaaS gives you cloud-based infrastructure including data storage and computational and network capacities, you still have to install, manage, and keep your database, middleware, and apps. SaaS gives you software applications but no insight into or control over the platform or infrastructure. PaaS can give you a suite of fully integrated cloud-based services which put you in control of the platform along with a pre-configured database, middleware, and software applications all wrapped in a solution which allows you to get into the nuts-and-bolts, enabling development, testing, and running of your own transactional and analytics enterprise applications.

Why Does Your Enterprise Need PaaS?

Markets and business environments have never been as volatile as they are today. Change is now a constant and a successful enterprise needs to deploy business processes and systems with greatest responsiveness and flexibility. PaaS offers a solution which enables a dynamic enterprise to lower IT costs while pushing the boundaries and sharpening its competitive edge.

PaaS, as it allows you to deploy environments only as and when you need them, on a pay-for-what-you-use subscription model, can bring savings of up to 50% compared to managing an on premise platform, infrastructure, and stacks. You can scale up and down as needed in close to real time, leaving your development teams free to innovate and test product and services in a flexible and secure environment.

In a nutshell, your enterprise needs PaaS to decrease capital outlay and running costs and maximize efficiency, responsiveness, innovation, creativity, and productivity in your business processes and outcomes. If your competitors are ahead of you in this game, it’s time to catch up. Don’t wait for the future to happen: make it happen.
