The Benefits and Significance of Private Platform as a Service (PaaS)

Enterprises are attracted to gaining the same type of development capability being enjoyed by born-on-the-Web companies. Platform as a service (PaaS) promises to deliver similar benefits to enterprises.

The dynamics of the PaaS market indicate that hybrid models provide the most flexibility where the private and public PaaS components are the same or have been specifically designed to work together.

In addition, it is noted that open source platforms and open standards are very effective at eliminating enterprise concerns over lock-in.
