Are you a cloud pioneer?

Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) pioneers blaze a new trail

A growing number of pioneering companies see the unique advantages of Cloud platform as a service (PaaS)—which offers the speed and saving of alternatives like infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and software as a service (SaaS), while allowing the user to retain choice and control over applications and data. These pioneers are adopting PaaS faster and providing valuable insight into the strategic benefits it can bring to an enterprise.

Harnesses the expertise of industry leaders




To understand current attitudes and activity in the PaaS space, the IBM Center for Applied Insights surveyed more than 1,500 IT decision makers from 18 countries, and followed up with qualitative interviews to gain a deeper perspective on the level of adoption and strategic relevance of this form of cloud computing. The results are detailed in the report, “Exploring the frontiers of cloud computing: Insights from Platform as a Service pioneers. (PDF, 1.33MB)

“…business users see the biggest value [from PaaS] because they are seeing applications developed more quickly; they are getting in front of customers quickly, getting feedback and driving the pace of innovation… I can’t express enough how difficult this is to do in a non-cloud environment.” – GM, Software Developer, US
