IaaS - pay-as-you-go access to storage, networking, servers and other resources in the cloud.

PaaS - access to a cloud-based environment and underlying infrastructure to build/deliver applications.

SaaS - users subscribe to software and access it via the web or vendor APIs.

IBM PaaS gives users a suite of prebuilt tools they can use to develop, customise, test and host their own applications in one environment; enabling organisations to focus on development without having to worry about underlying infrastructure. IBM PaaS facilitates collaborative work.

Development organisations that want to implement agile methodologies are the most suited for IBM PaaS. The speed and efficiency of IBM’s PaaS service allows for minimal disruption to business process whilst allowing for the company to develop their processes.

IBM PaaS is designed to allow easy development of information architecture, enabling better classification and more intuitive findability. It's also well suited for building full-stack web architectures with micro services and mobile front ends.

IBM PaaS costs are based on a utility billing model, meaning users pay only for what they use. This is in contrast to the costs of a user maintaining their own hardware and software infrastructure, which can represent significant savings.
