Research and Markets: Platform-as-a-Service Market 2013 Report

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the Platform-as-a-Service Market 2013 Report to their offering.

Global Platform-As-A-Service Market Is Expected To Post A CAGR Of 48.96 Percent During The Period 2012-2016

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the researchers' team said: 'One of the major reasons for PaaS adoption is to reduce the capital and operational costs associated with computing resource provisioning within enterprises. Since cloud services are provided over the cloud infrastructure, there is a considerable reduction in the associated capital and operational expenditure. SMEs have a smaller budget and opt for public cloud services to meet their business requirements. The pay-per-use model makes the solution feasible for SMEs as they pay only for their usage. PaaS providers are also providing additional tools such as business analytics and network optimization integrated with the solutions which prove beneficial for enterprises. This trend is increasing the popularity of PaaS solutions among SMEs.'

According to the report, one of the major drivers in the market is the need to reduce total cost of ownership. In traditional on-site projects, a lot of time is consumed in the creation of connections to all the different systems existing in the IT infrastructure of a company. With PaaS, the risk and resource requirements associated with the responsibility for implementation, continuous operation, backups, updates, and infrastructure maintenance of the applications is shifted from internal IT departments to PaaS vendors or service providers.

The increasing concern about data security is one of the major challenges confronting the market. Many end-users are concerned about the data security policies governing the cloud-based solutions of various vendors. In a multi-tenant model, there is always a risk of information leaks, which could result in the misuse or manipulation of data.
