  • Platform as a Service (PaaS) sits on top of IaaS and enables you to build applications to support the business.
For business leaders, cloud computing is a cost-effective way to leverage IT resources to prototype and implement strategic change. For your IT organization, the cloud allows it to be significantly more proactive and responsive when it comes to supporting strategic business imperatives.
