The widespread adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) is driving the use of platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offerings, according to Gartner Inc. The firm predicts that by 2020 more than 50% of all new applications developed on PaaS will be IoT-centric, disrupting conventional architecture practices.
"IoT adoption will drive additional use of PaaS to implement IoT-centric business applications built around event-driven architecture and IoT data, instead of business applications built around traditional master data," Benoit Lheureux, research vice president at Gartner, said in a statement.
“New IoT-centric business applications will drive a transformation in application design practices that focus on real-time contextually rich decisions, event-analysis, lightweight workflow and broad access to Web-scale data," Lheureux said.
Most new IoT-centric solutions will be deployed on IoT platforms, a form of multi-functional comprehensive PaaS that is a hybrid integration of application platform-as-a-service (aPaaS), integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS), IoT device management, and other cloud-based offerings, Gartner says.
The report predicts that through 2018 more than 70% of IT organizations planning a private PaaS will deploy a container service; more than 80% that deploy or assemble self-managed PaaS frameworks will not achieve the expected cloud PaaS experience; and by 2019 a mandatory capability for the top five aPaaS providers will be the delivery of both high-productivity and high-control PaaS options.
