Use PaaS to Decrease Ongoing Application Maintenance Costs

Take advantage of PaaS to offload components of your application development and deployment maintenance.

The increased app complexity and resource constraints in today’s fast moving business context result in:

  • Increasing pressure to maintain existing applications with less resource and budget.
  • Fragmented architecture components across multiple applications.
  • Lack of cloud platform elasticity.

Making an informed decision about PaaS adoption can result in:

  • Consolidated architecture in the cloud.
  • An ROI-based roadmap to determine the right rollout strategy instead of ad hoc which would make downstream consolidation much more difficult.
