“The enterprise is in the midst of a rapid and unnerving growth in mobility and data. The old and insular model for developing ‘in house’ solutions is giving way to a more open and experimental distributed approach. For the past decade ‘cloud computing’ has been gaining traction with businesses primarily through the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application model,” says Doug Atkinson, Solutions Review President. “From the widespread adoption of mission critical systems like Customer Relationship Management (CRM), systems delivered through a cloud-based application, the enterprise and many of its younger technical employees have become comfortable with cloud services.”
Now the opportunity is present for an even larger leap to the cloud. In addition to SaaS, three other cloud models have emerged for consideration: Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) – which provides access to hardware, network and physical resources; Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) – which is focused mostly on mobile application back ends; and, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) – which provides a more comprehensive stack of solutions including databases, operating systems, development tools and middleware.
Solutions Review continues to put a large emphasis on site neutrality; rather than picking winners and losers in the Cloud Platform space the site presents all the facts regarding best practices and solution news allowing buyers to make an informed decision for their organization. “We feel that with the information presented on each site and the value offered in our Solutions Review Buyers Guides, we have developed a great source of knowledge for those trying to navigate a space that is truly opening doors for the enterprise,” said Atkinson.
