PaaS and Application Support

Platform as a service (PaaS) is a cloud computing service that allows applications to accessed by the client through the Web.   PaaS suppliers are usually cloud solution companies who provide the necessary infrastructure in form of hardware and software to facilitate the development of applications to support the client’s business. The advantage for client is the potential cost saving of hosting and maintaining hardware and software tools that have limited shelf life.

The other key advantage is the flexibility PaaS platforms as it enables developers to reconfigure or replace outdated operating systems and provides a better environment for working in groups or on multiple projects simultaneously.

Applications are in every day technology these days. From smart phones, to tablets to smart TV’s. The applications can include gaming, surveillance, cyber security, e-retailing etc. However Applications are not as simple as they look. They require special skills from Application Support Analysts who are called upon to configure, support and maintain applications and the underlying operating system. When an application/system fails or is disrupted, it is the Application Support Analyst who is on hand to provide identify and resolve system glitches or failures. Applications are everywhere and businesses these days cannot function without them, which is why the demand for application support expertise continues to grow.
