    Using a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) model lets your organization standardize processes, lower costs, and realize faster time to value. An end-to-end PaaS environment can provide the following key advantages:

    • Reduce lead time for launching new applications.
    • Provide flexibility to support both cloud-centric or cloud-enabled workloads.
    • Enable developers to easily build, deploy, and manage cloud applications while using services and frameworks that are available in a cloud environment.
    • Capture changing trends in elastic cloud environment.
    • Take advantage of built-in operational and business support services for applications.

    This IBM® Redbooks® Point-of-View publication provides information about PaaS.
