Many businesses are now looking for a way to remove the major investment, time and resources required by tech infrastructure – while still accessing the hardware and software they require to deliver services.
There is also more demand for a digital solution that is scalable to demand, and easier to implement and remove as needed, without traditional installation.
Businesses are often required to provide the infrastructure required to support their business systems. A cost will not always see a return before it needs to, once again, be replaced or updated.
As technology changes rapidly, this is becoming more common. Some businesses are having to decide whether to invest in the required infrastructure, even though they know that investment will be short-lived. Others won’t even have the choice.
Platform as a Service, or PaaS, (cloud) offers a de facto approach from infrastructure provisioning. It provides a way for businesses to continue to utilise technology and software, with self-provisioning of maintenance and administration activities, without capital investment in infrastructure, and by breaking the infrastructure renewal cycle.
