re: Why PaaS Is The Future
While I appreciate the suggested steps for exploring and evaluaing PaaS vendors, the assertions in the first paragraph seem pretty bold, and lacking in supporting evidence. Really? PaaS is certainly the future because you say so? It will dominate and replace IaaS or SaaS ... why? If my CIO asks me whether I recommend IaaS or PaaS for a particular application, what justification would I give her for PaaS -- especially in these early days?
I am not disagreeing that "companies that fail to consider it will be at a disadvantage" But considering PaaS is a long, long, long way from embracing PaaS as "the future."
