As-a-Service in the cloud
But how should you take the plunge into the cloud? And what forms of 'as a Service' would best suit your users' needs and your organisational objectives? In the long term, everything will be offered 'as a Service' – from your word processor and your calendar to your business applications and the underlying infrastructure. There are a number of different types of 'as a Service' available, depending on your needs and requirements.
- IaaS: Infrastructure as a Service offers ready-made virtual servers in the cloud that are available to you on demand.
- PaaS: Platform as a Service is an application platform that allows you to easily develop new applications.
- SaaS: Software as a Service (SaaS) is based on ready-made standard solutions that are hosted in the cloud.
- iPaaS: iPaaS is an Integration Platform as a Service that allows various solutions and systems to share data in the cloud.
- DaaS: Desktop as a Service moves your desktop and all your trusted applications from your own hard drive into the cloud – without you noticing any difference.
Growth in 'As-a-Service' options
This growth in 'as a Service' options leaves you with a vast range of choice, leading to a greater risk of making the wrong decision. This is why it is sensible to think very carefully about your system landscape in advance. What are your aims? What do your customers expect? How should you arrange your processes to satisfy these aims and requirements? What options are available? What one-off and recurring costs are involved?
