Platform-as-a-Service Implementation Decisions Have Moved from Developers to Boardrooms.
This report is about the change in best practices required when it comes to selecting and implementing a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) tool across an enterprise that wants to build next-generation applications.
More specifically, the decision has moved from the developers to the CxOs as the creation of next-generation applications has become strategic for enterprises. Boards often get involved to assess and approve potential consequences of a PaaS decision, in ways that go beyond the direct technology decision.
The report concludes with a set of recommendations for CxOs, the most important one being to move fast. Coming late to digital transformation situations because of not having a PaaS strategy to build next-generation applications isn't just a career-limiting move; instead, it could cause a situation that leads to the enterprise going down and/or out of business.
