Most organisations rely on core, centralised products to manage and process everyday business activities – whether this is a full blown ERP system, an accounting package, CRM system or sales platform, or a combination thereof.
The large vendors that supply these core products obviously cannot fulfil every process required by organisations. Generally, they also lack the flexibility to constantly develop and release additional modules, add-ons or extensions for their products, such is the breadth and scope of the various marketplaces that companies occupy and subsequent business processes required.
Developing customised applications and add-ons via PaaS
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) makes it easy for businesses to rapidly build data-driven applications and deploy them on any cloud (Public, Private or Hybrid) or on-premises, on any device, without the cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying infrastructure.
These applications and add-ons can provide the desired additional functionality for companies that have already invested in expensive systems as mentioned above. Instead of overhauling entire information technology strategies, these add-ons can be used to support specific activities of a business unit.
PaaS gives organisations the freedom and ability to scale or reduce application use to meet current requirements and financial budgets, as well as scale up (and down) application availability to rapidly meet business events or specific projects.
Applications and add-ons developed outside of the core business system also allow organisations to keep up to date with the latest releases from the vendor without it damaging upgrade paths.
