Ask a Wikibon analyst: Why should I care about PaaS?


Wikibon analyst Brian Gracely

If you’re wondering what platform-as-a-service (PaaS) is and whether you should worry about it, Brian Gracely says you’re already behind the curve. Gracely, who began contributing to the Wikibon community last month after a long and successful career at multiple vendors and cloud providers, thinks software development will need to become a core competency for every business as cloud-based disruptors attack from every direction.

CIOs need to come out of 2015 with a clear understanding not only of what platforms are but how their organizations plan to adopt it, he says, because rapid software development will define the next stage of competition.

That’s because the competitive playing field is shifting. “In the 1980s and 1990s, ERP and supply-chain were the platforms that defined successful companies,” Gracely asserts in Cloud Native Application Platforms – Structured and Unstructured, a new research brief on Wikibon Premium. “In the 2000s, websites and online ordering platforms allowed companies to compete globally and 24x7x365. Going forward, the ability to create new applications and adapt to rapidly changing economics will define the winners and losers.”
