Potentiale von PaaS, SaaS und IaaS nutzen
Gartner: PaaS wird vorherrschendes Plattform-Delivery-Modell für die Zukunft
Die wichtigsten Trends in Sachen PaaS und Plattform-Architektur 2019
Im Vorfeld der IT Infrastructure, Operations und Cloud Strategies-Konferenz stellte das Research- und Beratungsunternehmen Gartner die wichtigsten PaaS- und Plattformarchitekturtrends vor: In allen Segmenten des PaaS-Marktes zeigen sich gesunde Wachstumsraten. Organisationen, die die unterschiedlichen Potentiale von PaaS, SaaS und IaaS zu nutzen wissen, ziehen dabei den größten Nutzen aus ihrer Cloud-Investition. Zudem geht der Trend mehr und mehr hin zu nativen Cloud Computing-Technologien wie Serverless-Plattformen, mikrovirtuellen Maschinen oder Low-Code-Angeboten. Die Unternehmens-IT wird dabei mehr und mehr zum Dienstleister für die gesamte Unternehmensorganisation.
"Die PaaS-Trends spiegeln die kontinuierlichen Veränderungen in den Bereichen Cloud Computing und digitales Business wider und treiben sie zugleich voran", so Yefim Natis, Distinguished Research Vice President bei Gartner.
Gartner Identifies Key Trends in PaaS and Platform Architecture for 2019

Gartner, Inc. has identified the key trends impacting platform as a service (PaaS) technologies and platform architecture in 2019 and beyond. "The trends we see in PaaS both reflect and drive the trends in the continuous transformation of cloud computing and digital business," said Yefim Natis, distinguished research vice president at Gartner. "As organisations embrace cloud platforms, they find themselves facing a variety of changes."
In order to provide guidance in the fast-growing market for cloud platform services, Gartner has highlighted the key trends that application leaders should consider as they make decisions on technology, budget and organisation.
Trend No.1: A Booming PaaS Market
As of 2019, the total PaaS market contains more than 360 vendors, offering more than 550 cloud platform services in 21 categories. Gartner expects that, from 2018 to 2022, the market will double in size and that PaaS will be the prevailing platform delivery model moving forward.
"All PaaS segments show healthy growth rates. However, the market remains short on standardisation, established practices and sustained leadership. Vendors need to address those issues in a timely manner to encourage adoption by more risk-averse organisations,” Mr Natis said.
Trend No.2: The Cloud Platform Continuum
PaaS capabilities aim to support the role of a cloud platform. However, all cloud services including infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and software as a service (SaaS) can be key factors for a platform. Together, those services constitute the cloud platform continuum. To look for and recognise the opportunities for platform-based innovation across the entire spectrum of cloud services will soon be part of every cloud strategy.
"Organisations that embrace the potential roles and unique differentiators of IaaS, PaaS and instrumented SaaS in the spectrum of cloud platform capabilities stand to extract the greatest value from their cloud investments," Mr Natis said.
Trend No.3: Cloud-Native Design
New technology architectures arise, designed to natively reflect the essentials of the cloud experience: agility, continuous innovation, fast delivery. Recent examples of cloud-native technologies include serverless platforms, microvirtual machines and low-code offerings. "‘Cloud computing’ is evolving to become just ‘computing,’ and cloud-native design in new investments is becoming pervasive across organisations, use cases and deployment models," Mr Natis added.
Trend No. 4: Enterprise IT Becomes a Service Provider to the Business Organisation
"What we see is that central IT starts to provide the business organisation with enablement services such as platforms, training, consulting and support. They are also in charge of overall governance,” said Mr. Natis. This development is driven by the combined impact of innovations such as low-code tools, machine-learning-assisted development and self-service consumption models, which lead to a redefinition of the role of central IT — away from a "factory” delivery and towards a "service provider” approach.
