  11. 11. What to look for in a PaaS vendor Make sure a pre-integrated set of components is offered on the PaaS offering – not a client led list of components Choose a vendor which already has PaaS solutions in use by real clients in real project situations Beware of being “locked in” to a PaaS supplier by ensuring all Intellectual Property can be licensed and used by a replacement partner Ensure the PaaS platform has been tested by an independent security auditing companyIN YOUR ZONE 11
