IDC PlanScape: Analyzing Platform-as-a-Service ChoicesThis IDC study offers guidance on adopting a platform-as-a-service strategy.According to Larry Carvalho, research manager, Platform as a Service, IDC, "Cloud platforms are accelerating application delivery at a much higher pace than before by leveraging abstracted cloud infrastructure both in public and on-premise environments." Carvalho adds, "New cognitive and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are helping businesses deliver innovative solutions to their end users and keep pace with start-ups trying to disrupt existing businesses. Organizations are working hard to change their culture, which remains a high barrier to adopting new cloud development technologies. Organizations cannot stand still and ignore new ways of leveraging cloud technology to meet rapidly changing business challenges and new customer expectations."
