The Coming PaaS World War

executive summary Executive Summary

PaaS represents a key choice to be made on the road to cloud adoption, and competition among vendors large and small continues to intensify in this space. PaaS is forecast by The 451 Group to be a $1.1bn market by 2013. By then, all-out war will be under way on multiple fronts, including Java, Ruby on Rails, PHP and BPM. PaaS is here to stay, and virtually any organization that wants to embrace the cloud is a potential PaaS customer. Even those companies that want to keep applications in-house can still take advantage of the efficiencies of the PaaS model.

Vendors of all shapes and sizes are vying for PaaS spending. Portability, responsiveness, and speed/ease of development and deployment will determine the winners. This report aims to illuminate the competitive dynamics of PaaS today, and examine where the battles of tomorrow will be fought.
