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 basis 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 simply 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.
