Unifying the Enterprise Application Puzzle

Fifteen to twenty years ago, enterprise application development, as we know today, wasn’t all that clear. All I can deduce, in a retrospective analysis – digging the internet, is that people knew the different puzzle pieces that were needed, in building an enterprise application.

What Is PaaS All About? - Part 1

This is the first part of the multi-part series on "What is PaaS all about?" Let’s start by looking at the “Platform” story prior to Cloud. Enterprise IT did a lot of heavy lifting. They handcrafted the platform by combining various products such as App Servers, Web Servers, Databases, Middleware, Integration Servers, Portal Servers, and Workflow Engines. Not only did Enterprises IT create a unique combination for them, they also ended up redundantly deploying it for various projects within the enterprise. There was no common or central runtime platform, although they always inte... (more)
