Guide to Finding the Right PaaS Vendor

Business software solutions companies need the agility and efficiency to keep up with the demands of their clientele. For app development, that means cutting back on overhead to maximize productivity. Platform-as-a-service tools provide developers with the hardware and software they need to develop applications, providing cloud-based architecture for small and medium-sized development teams. Business software solutions companies have a wealth of PaaS vendors to choose from, and figuring out which one is best for a given business can be a challenge. When evaluating potential vendors, developers should weigh these factors.


One of the most important things to consider is how much flexibility a given platform provider offers. Does the PaaS provider offer instant scalability for data storage, or are their strict limits that might get in the way of scalability? Is the platform compatible with multiple development languages? On the hardware side, does the vendor provide the developers with resources fast enough that they aren’t waiting around for requests to be filled?

Regulatory Considerations

This is something developers rarely think about, but it could end up costing a company a bundle if they are fined for non-compliance. Finding a PaaS vendor with strict regulatory compliance protocols is especially important for apps that deal with sensitive personal data like medical and credit information.

Related Services

Many PaaS vendors offer services distinct from app development platforms that can be integrated within the apps. With application monitoring, deployment pipeline, and databasing options, many vendors can augment the core functionality of the app with ancillary services. Companies should keep in mind, however, that over-integration could lead to vendor-lock, where a businesses app is so ingrained with a single provider that it is difficult to switch to another.
