HealthyApp, a new Accenture H&PS client, specializes in developing custom software for hospitals and other medical facilities. For the upcoming fiscal year, they want to move to a more agile and innovative software development model, in which their developers can focus on application features and functionality, rather than underlying environments and infrastructure. Which Cloud computing model would provide HealthyApp with the framework to help achieve this goal?
- PaaS (Platform as a Service)
- IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service)
- SaaS (Software as a Service)
- None of them
Answer – (A) PaaS (Platform as a Service)
HealthyApp, a new Accenture H&PS client, specializes in custom software development for hospitals along with other medical institutes. The PaaS (Platform as a Service) model would provide HealthyApp with the framework to help achieve this goal.
This cloud computing method allows you to make the app without having to worry about technical details or how to manage it. You as a developer have to just focus on application features and functionalities. Also, it perfectly fits between the other two methods of cloud service which are IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and SaaS (Software as a Service). Here are some of the reasons why it is what you need.
Among the three methods, PaaS has the most simple process of creating software. You as a developer will not have to worry about installing servers, managing databases, or other complicated details. You can put all the time into writing the code for the application as well as adding new features that will help the user when they use your app. Besides that, you can also focus on making the app better if you have other developers working on the app.
Speed and Efficiency
With Platform as a Service or PaaS, you get a lot of tools and components that are pre-built as well as resources that will help you to make the app faster or accelerate the development process. Other than that, you and other developers working on HealthyApp can put more into making the app faster without having to worry about coding and testing. You cannot take advantage of these things with other cloud services.
If you use PasS then you can make use of pay as you go pricing model. This means when developing HealthyApp you only need to pay for the services and resources that you are using and will be using. With this, you don’t have to invest a large amount of the budget in just the development process rather you can optimize the overall operational costs.
Collaboration and Integration
In addition to all of the above benefits, you have collaboration and integration tools with services or APIs with PaaS (Platform as a Service). This makes it easier to add more developers to your team as well as integrate with external systems or services that HealthyApp might need to use in the software.
Platform as a Service (PaaS) is the best cloud computing platform for HealthyApp’s goal to adopt a more flexible and creative software development strategy. There are many advantages that you can get when using this cloud service in comparison to others. If you want to learn more about it detail then read the answer above.
