When eating at a new restaurant, what do you take note of? How do you decide whether or not you will be coming back?
When I eat out, I make an opinion about both the food and the service. I might find one to be better than the other. I might be pleasantly surprised by both, or I might leave the restaurant shaking my head saying, “The food was great, but the service was terrible!”
Bad service usually means I won’t be returning, no matter how delicious the food.
The IT world's growing reliance on the cloud is can be compared to such an experience. Developers are no longer simply the cooks, providing the best product possible, but also as the waitstaff. Development teams must deliver those products, provide user assistance, and create the best experience possible. Even those delivering development platforms for developers must provide a host of top-of-the-line services that enhance the development environment—it's ambiance, if you will. This integration of productivity with services is the major reason to move to Platform as a Service (PaaS), so it is essential to choose a PaaS that suits your needs.
PaaS platforms like Progress Pacific, with its cloud-native deployment model, bridge the gap between product and services. For that reason, Progress Pacific offers robust cloud services. Your PaaS should work just like your favorite restaurant, where your favorite items are always on the menu, the waitstaff always informs you about the latest selections, and your table is always ready.
