Why Read This Report

Interest in platform-as-a-service (PaaS) continues to run hot. Yet customer expectations don't often align with the quickly evolving capabilities of PaaS products.

Whatever your organization's primary software delivery goals, there is a PaaS to help it meet them — if you know how to recognize it. Read this report for pragmatic guidance to navigating the three faces of PaaS.
