A few weeks ago I opined, as is my want, about what I saw happening in the technology space with regard to Platform as a Service (PaaS).
As I saw it, PaaS was pretty much a concept that had been superseded by newer approaches to application and infrastructure creation and management. You’d be forgiven for thinking that two of the best known PaaS offerings, Cloud Foundry and OpenShift, would be pretty antsy about such a bold claim.
Surprisingly, that doesn’t seem to be the case. In fact, Abby Kearns, the chief executive of the Cloud Foundry Foundation, asked to jump on a call with me to opine exactly why she, who runs a foundation which itself shepherds an initiative that most concur is PaaS, agrees wholeheartedly with my view.
