50% Applications Developed On PaaS Will Be IoT-Centric: Gartner

50%-Applications-Developed-On-PaaS-Will-Be-IoT-Centric:-GartnerBy 2020 more than 50 percent of all new applications developed on PaaS (platform as a service) will be IoT (Internet of Things) centric says Gartner.

“IoT adoption will drive additional use of PaaS to implement IoT-centric business applications built around event-driven architecture and IoT data, instead of business applications built around traditional master data,” said Benoit Lheureux, research vice president, Gartner.

“New IoT-centric business applications will drive a transformation in application design practices that focus on real-time contextually rich decisions, event-analysis, lightweight workflow, and broad access to Web-scale data,” added Lheureux.

Most new IoT-centric solutions will be implemented on IoT platforms, a form of multifunctional comprehensive PaaS that is a hybrid, architecturally coherent integration of application platform as a service (aPaaS), integration platform as a service (iPaaS), IoT device management, orchestration and business process management services as a platform (bpmPaaS), database PaaS (dbPaaS) and analytics services.

By investing in cloud platforms, enterprise IT leaders are seeking some or all of the key benefits of cloud for their new IT initiatives. However, in the next three years, many self-managed private PaaS initiatives will fail to meet the IT organization leadership’s expectations of cloud characteristics.

The tension between the forces in favor of private PaaS and those demanding the full public cloud experience will intensify as self-managed private cloud disappoints. Managed private (or public) PaaS will emerge as best practices.

“Success with a private cloud (including PaaS) requires a recognition of the essential cultural and organizational changes to IT organizations, as well as technology changes,” said Yefim V Natis, vice president and Gartner Fellow.

“Lacking this understanding leads many organizations to stop their PaaS investment at the point of technology deployment — leading to disappointing results down the road,” added Natis.

By 2019, a mandatory capability for the top five aPaaS providers will be the delivery of both high-productivity and high-control PaaS options.
