The PaaS Era

Erika Morphy, E-Commerce Times, Feb 27, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

PaaS stands for "Platform as a Service" and is the next instantiation of the service-based (or Software as a Service (SaaS)) architecture. E-Commerce Times has a two-part article (Part One, Part Two) on the concept and its application in business. The net effect, in my view, of PaaS, is that it allows much smaller enterprises to access software support previously available only to larger organizations. "Oracle on demand" is a great example of this.
