GigaOM Pro Report on Private PaaS Features How JPMorgan Chase, AmerisourceBergen and Diebold Benefit from Apprenda Private PaaS
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- GigaOM Pro today released a report titled, "Private PaaS: the Next Generation Platform for Enterprises," authored by David Linthicum, highlighting the benefits of private PaaS for large enterprises with massive, mission-critical application portfolios. Innovators in strategic plans for cloud, JPMorgan Chase, AmerisourceBergen and Diebold, are featured in the report detailing improved development and deployment productivity and major savings and ROI by implementing Apprenda private PaaS.
The report notes that public PaaS may offer great benefits to application development, but questions of security, protecting sensitive data and compliance with audit and governmental policies cause enterprises to turn to private cloud to meet these standards.
"The emergence of PaaS, specifically private PaaS, provides a clear opportunity for enterprises to get much better at building business applications at the speed businesses need them," said David Linthicum, analyst at GigaOM Research. "Enterprises have the ability to provide developers with a centralized and unified self-service cloud application platform that can deploy and manage their application development processes, as well as the resulting application. Organizations have all of this while still maintaining control, consistency, and quality of the applications built, tested, and placed into production."
The report details real-world examples of how Apprenda has saved major financial organizations, large healthcare companies and major manufacturing brands millions by rethinking how they build cloud applications and migrate existing legacy apps. By implementing a private PaaS strategy, Apprenda has enabled organizations to:
- Increase efficiency and agility with a centralized and unified self-service cloud application platform to maintain control, consistency and quality of the applications built, tested and placed into production.
- Maintain or improve compliance and security of mission-critical data by housing it onsite in their own datacenter.
- Reduce complexity and simplify management by transforming their servers into a single resource pool as well as defining policies that allow developers to consume pre-defined configurations.
- Reduce costs with a scalable architecture where you 'pay as you grow' and only utilize resources on an as-needed basis without large up-front investments.
The path to PaaS, specifically private PaaS, is not obvious and enterprises need to understand their requirements before implementing a PaaS strategy. For most enterprises, there is value in leveraging private PaaS as a path to increase agility and meet organizational demands without adding security and compliance risks.
