Never before have business models, processes and information been as individualized and prone to change as they are today. Nor have businesses needed to react to new demands so quickly. Platform as a Service provides the technical foundation for this.
In contrast to Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), you are provided with more than just the hardware. On the other hand, unlike Software as a Service (SaaS), you do not merely receive pre-set, and therefore less flexible, software. Instead, you receive the entire infrastructure and services that enable you to develop, roll out, and operate your own tailored applications – straight from the cloud.
