Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offers ease of use and speedy time-to-market for business apps—sometimes even without the IT department getting involved. But are organizations really adopting the technology? If so, to what end? A 700-person survey from app development and data integration company Progress points to soaring demand for PaaS architecture from organizations looking for faster development and deployment cycles. More importantly, companies are seeing real business benefits from its speed, agility and scalability in addressing challenges related to mobile app development and big data, when compared with non-PaaS users. The findings also show that we're entering a new age of "Develop Your Own Application" (DYOA) geared toward meeting ever-changing business requirements. "The rise of DYOA is the latest trend to reshape the way we work. It's never been easier to develop an application that can allow your business, a department, or even a specific individual to be more productive, regardless of your coding skills," said Matt Robinson, vice president of technology at Progress. "This study shows that, despite the relative ease of today's application development and deployment processes, there's still a huge appetite to be able to improve these cycles by making them quicker and better. The benefits of using a rapid application development PaaS to improve speed and productivity should not be lost in the excitement of the DYOA age, and this research reveals that many are beginning to wake up to the benefits they can provide." This slide show offers 10 such benefits to PaaS usage.
