Platform as a Service (PaaS) providers such as Google, Amazon and Microsoft, have freed developers from the hassles of maintaining their own server infrastructure, or being tied to a single technology platform. Applications can be built to take advantage of any number of cloud technologies, from static hosting in high performance CDNs, to serverless functions and edge computing.
Content Management systems were born to make the mundane task of updating a static website easier for non-technical users. The explosion of automated tools such as Jenkins, TeamCity, or Azure DevOps for building and deploying your website not just quickly and regularly, but continually in the case of Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD), has removed this barrier.
Everything as a Service
Industry-leading digital products are increasingly delivered "as a service" – available online via subscription – rather than requiring an outright purchase and installation on a server. Overwhelmingly, these SaaS products provide comprehensive APIs for advanced integration scenarios.
