It’s a digital world and you’re going to have to provide software services, whether to service the internal needs of your business or the demands of your customers. Doing so isn’t optional. The effective use of technology delivers business value. The underpinnings of computing infrastructure, as well as how applications are developed and operated, are changing dramatically. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), containers, cloud management platforms, more distributed and decoupled application architectures, a culture and process for more rapid and iterative application development — these rapidly moving technologies and approaches are coming together as a new type of “fast IT”1 that increasingly complements the still-important classic IT infrastructures on which organizations depend. In this paper we discuss: • How these new technology areas, largely based on and shaped by open source, interrelate and can benefit you. • Why you should consider a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution, like OpenShift by Red Hat®, to take advantage of these technologies without having to do your own integration. • How PaaS improves both developer agility and operational efficiency so that you can deploy and operate applications more quickly, more flexibly, and with higher quality.
