Cloud software development is stuck in a paradigm for decades.
Is Cloud Software development stuck in a paradigm for decades?
- The inability to develop applications using many languages and frameworks – limits the types of applications that can be developed and deployed. For example, if you want to build an application that uses different languages or frameworks such as Java and .NET, you have to use many toolsets across different vendors with no guarantee of compatibility between them.
- The inability to customize an application – means that you need to create a new version of your application every time there is a code change. This will take more time and resources than it should due to customizing the same codebase again and again.
The inability to scale up or down – when you add more servers or clients, the existing server stack has to be scaled up or down for all the components to keep running.
Cloud Software development is stuck in a paradigm for decades and it is time to move on.
The idea of Software as a Service (SaaS) has been around since the early 1990s and has been gaining popularity since then. It is not surprising that SaaS has become one of the most popular Internet technologies today; after all, it allows users to access applications via the Internet without having to install or maintain them themselves.
This technology has been around for almost twenty years now; but, there are still some misconceptions about what SaaS actually means, especially when it comes to cloud computing.
Let's explore in our upcoming articles how we can encounter and have better optimizations to this paradigm.
