PaaS - Top 5 Things You Need to Know Before You Implement

  1. 1. © 2014 Progress Software Corporation. All rights reserved.1 5things you need to know before you implement PaaS
  2. 2. © 2014 Progress Software Corporation. All rights reserved.2 Even the best application development platforms have their limitations. Progress GM and VP of Progress Pacific, Michael Benedict, names the top five things you need to know about successful PaaS implementation.
  3. 3. © 2014 Progress Software Corporation. All rights reserved.3 Are you aware of the industry provisions? Most PaaS solutions enable self- service provisioning of platform elements. However, the ease of use for the automated self- service options, and the actual range of processes that are automated, can vary widely. Will you automate or self service your platform?
  4. 4. © 2014 Progress Software Corporation. All rights reserved.4 Does the PaaS solution enable you to customize your stack, assuming you want to? For example, if you want to use Postgre SQL instead of Microsoft SQL Server, can you make the change? If making a change like that requires a special support request, which must be overseen by a person on your end, you may be increasing the IT overhead required to manage PaaS. Customization
  5. 5. © 2014 Progress Software Corporation. All rights reserved.5 Some model-based PaaS solutions make it possible to set up a reusable application platform template. For example, your application needs a specific application server, database, and storage array, each with numerous custom settings. Building it from scratch over and over might not be the best use of your IT resources’ time. Again, this may or may not be relevant, but if you are contemplating setting up multiple instances of a PaaS application, it could be a driver of efficiency. Platform Templating
  6. 6. © 2014 Progress Software Corporation. All rights reserved.6 Support quality levels differ between different PaaS providers. Some are completely self-help oriented, or nearly so, requiring you to consult a knowledge database to solve problems. Other PaaS providers make specialized, dedicated support staff available to you. Of course, this latter option is going to be more costly, but might be worth the expense if your application is critical to your business. Hands on service, vs. “Self-Help”
  7. 7. © 2014 Progress Software Corporation. All rights reserved.7 The challenge is that it can be hard to predict where you need to be in a year or two The best practice is to work with a provider that at least gives you the option to change from public to private cloud at a later date. Public Vs. Private Cloud
  8. 8. © 2014 Progress Software Corporation. All rights reserved.8 With more businesses demanding faster, easier access to critical business applications, the time has come for cloud based app development. It’s time to look at PaaS.
