BriefingsDirect Analysts Unpack Platform as a Service and Measure Future Impact on Enterprises Our topic on BriefingsDirect Analyst Insights Edition, Vol. 40, centers on platform as a service (PaaS), part of the cloud computing taxonomy that pertains to software and services development over the Internet. Developers can use tools and testing apparatus as a service on someone else's data center, building and refining their applications and services, and even putting them through some real world performance testing, before going into production and use. We've seen a great deal of interest by the developers in using Amazon's Web services for PaaS. We've also seen a lot of action and interest from the likes of Google, Microsoft, and even IBM. Yet a lot of enterprise operators and mangers don't even see PaaS on their radar. They're much more interested in the infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) components of cloud computing and software as a service (SaaS). So, what is PaaS good for and how will it impact enterprises? We're joined by a panel of guests and analysts to help dig into the enterprise role of PaaS: Jim Kobielus, senior analyst at Forrester Research; David A. Kelly, president of Upside Research; Mike Meehan, senior analyst at Current Analysis; Jonathan Bryce, co-founder of Mosso at Rackspace, and Rourke McNamara, product marketing director at TIBCO Software. Our discussion is hosted and moderated by BriefingsDirect's Dana Gardner. Read a full transcript of the discussion at Charter Sponsor: Active Endpoints. Sponsor: TIBCO Software.
