PaaS to iPaaS

Let us start at the foundation, what is Platform-as-a-Service and how it will benefit a company. Before that, we need to understand Software-as-a-Service [SaaS], an application like your business app, web-based email, or a word processor that runs on the cloud. Companies began adopting the SaaS model, which essentially paved the way ahead for cloud computing services. In fact, for most of us, the first connection with a cloud-based system was checking our mails on the web.  

Platform-as-a-Service [PaaS] is an extension of this model. Over the last decade or so, enterprises have not only taken to business apps running from the cloud, but they have adopted cloud computing as a space to run the platform for software. PaaS is a cloud computing model where you will engage with a third-party provider to deliver the necessary hardware and software tools required for app development to end-users.

Since the tools run on the cloud, developers need not install them to run new applications. PaaS tools are easy and convenient to use, and users pay on a per-use basis. Optimization of resources and costs is the main advantage of PaaS that drives enterprises to switch to this model.  

How does PaaS work? 

As mentioned above, PaaS is a type of cloud computing solution that enables clients to develop, run, and manage their business apps without a dedicated infrastructure to host the solution.  

While PaaS will not replace the entire IT software development infrastructure, the necessary tools available on the host’s infrastructure are accessible through the web browser. PaaS solutions are made accessible through public, private, and hybrid clouds.  

Some of the PaaS services are, 

  • Application Hosting
  • Web Service Integration Information Security 
  • Java Development. 
  • Development Team Collaboration 
  • Database Integration 
  • Application Testing and Deployment 
  • Application Design and Development 
The PaaS Advantages 

The significant advantage PaaS offers is giving enterprises the freedom to gain access to an environment to create and deploy new web/mobile applications without spending too much money or time. The infrastructure is pre-built and easily accessible.  Some of the other iPaaS benefits are:

  • Faster App Development 
  • Rapid Time-to-Market
  • New Languages, Databases, & Operating Systems Testing
  • Easy Tool Upgrade
  • Infrastructure Access (Anywhere Anytime)
  • Complete Control of Data and Secure Space
Integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS)

Joining the league of SaaS and PaaS is iPaaS, also a cloud-based solution. The key benefits of PaaS, SaaS, and iPaaS are that they allow businesses to innovate, increase speed in reaching the market, optimize costs, increase efficiency, and offer a better customer experience, which is the ultimate goal for businesses today.  

While the Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) is a relatively new approach to the world of integration, it enables businesses across sectors to connect their applications, data, and processes much faster than what was available in the traditional integration platform. A sign that iPaaS is slowly but surely an integral part of any business is Gartner’s slew of research publications, including the Gartner Reference Model of Integration PaaS.

iPaaS is a suite of cloud services that enables the development, execution, and governance of integration flows. It also facilitates connecting a combination of on-premise and cloud-based processes, applications, services, and data within individuals or across multiple organizations.

If you were to assess the need for iPaaS for your business, look at the below-mentioned challenges. If you experience one or more of these, then it is time to adopt iPaaS. 

  • Integrating the on-premise and legacy application to SaaS platforms 
  • Enabling cloud services and integrating with 3rd-party platforms
  • Curb any risk associated with data security 
  • Supporting the frequent changes in the back-end systems to help meet business requirements 
  • Scale-up the integration platform to meet IoT and other digital needs
