An aPaaS platform provides the ability to build applications iteratively, provision application software instantly, scale applications on-demand, and integrate applications with other services.
Infrastructure and applications were the first to be available on the cloud computing services in the form of Infra as a Service or IaaS (e.g. Amazon Web Services) and Software as a Service or SaaS (e.g. Salesforce).
Later, middleware services too were available in the cloud. But middleware constitutes a lot of things like application development, application deployment, integration services, identity services, and other platform services. All these services are lumped together under Platform as a Service or PaaS (e.g. Heroku).
In this context, those services that primarily offer application development and deployment are referred to as application Platform as a Service or aPaaS (e.g. WaveMaker low-code platform) while PaaS refers to the entire spectrum of middleware as a service offering.
The right aPaaS platform brings speed and agility to the entire application lifecycle, paving way for frictionless enterprise application delivery.
Consider the following capabilities while making your decision.
