This IDC Market Perspective considers the role of cognitive and artificial intelligence services for enhancing traditional platform as a service (PaaS) and serverless application deployment environments.
"We see the incorporation of services alongside a PaaS environment as a key differentiator for vendors and a significant accelerator for developers building cloud-native applications," said Larry Carvalho, research director, Platform as a Service, IDC. "The vendors with the broadest and most complete portfolio of services are likely to have the best opportunity to monetize their PaaS environment."
