Gartner identifies key trends in PaaS and Platform Architecture for 2019

0 383

Gartner 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 organizations 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 organization.

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 standardization, established practices and sustained leadership. Vendors need to address those issues in a timely manner to encourage adoption by more risk-averse organizations,” 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 recognize the opportunities for platform-based innovation across the entire spectrum of cloud services will soon be part of every cloud strategy.

“Organizations 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,” 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 organizations, use cases and deployment models,” Natis added.

Trend No. 4: Enterprise IT Becomes a Service Provider to the Business Organization

“What we see is that central IT starts to provide the business organization with enablement services such as platforms, training, consulting and support. They are also in charge of overall governance,” said 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.
