Platform-as-a-service CEOs bet their futures on mainstream PaaS adoption

Today at CloudBeat 2012, the four CEOs — AppFog‘s Lucas Carlson, Apprenda‘s Sinclair Schuller, dotCloud‘s Solomon Hykes, Engine Yard‘s John Dillon — all believe that 10 years from now the PaaS and cloud markets will be substantially changed, with PaaS kicking serious ass. What that takes is big-dollar companies to invest in PaaS companies on the promise that it will help them deploy and develop apps faster and better than they’ve ever done.

“When you go into an enterprise and talk to them, you say ‘we’re here to build the foundation for the next 10 years of app development for you,’ Schuller said.
