Apprenda Boosts Agility Into Its Downloadable PaaS

Apprenda offers developers access to its public instance of PaaS to experiment and make their applications production ready and then allows them to download it all to their environments to increase agility within its PaaS offering.

Taking feedback from early adopters of Apprenda PaaS to have flexibility to take the PaaS in-house, the company had to revisited strategy to productize the platform with a license driven PaaS layer. Sinclair Schuller, CEO of Apprenda, said that “The managed hosting of a public PaaS is the lowest value contributor in the ROI equation. PaaS value is primarily defined by the boost in agility and time to market, low friction application management, and in our case, the largest ROI value contribution is the ability to “inject” very high end architectures like multi-tenancy into standard web and SOA apps”.
