Guilty! You will find SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS terms in my past research documents and blogs posts. But I have decided to stop using the *-as-a-service moniker because it is a redundant pleonasm like horseless carriage, wireless phone, and absolutely necessary – meaningless because it is excruciatingly redundant.
Does “as-a-service” merely mean that “it”:
- Resides in the cloud?
- Is pay-per-use?
Stop the insanity.
Join me in pledging to eliminate-as-a-service (EaaS) the *-as-a-service term. Darn. There I go again.
