PaaS Services Explained: The Most Common SaaS Use Cases by Richard Bingham
March 8, 2017 Leave a comment
This article summarizes our selection of the Oracle Cloud Platform Services (PaaS) with specific focus on use with an existing Oracle Cloud Applications (SaaS) environment. In other content the term PaaS4SaaS has been used for this context.
This is the first of a series of articles in which we will use examples to demonstrate some of the key functions and features inside the Oracle PaaS services, and indeed many will be derived from real implementations. Again the focus is on getting value for use with an existing Oracle Fusion Cloud (SaaS) environment, as opposed to a general feature overview.
Clearly all services evolve of time, and as such the information provided is accurate at the time of writing, and where possible links to updated content will be provided.
In order to organize this series of articles, and at the same time portray the most-common use of each of the services, we’ve selected the following four broad categories within which to place each of the PaaS service offerings.
- Build custom extension applications
- Host your existing extension applications
- Integrate your existing custom and packaged applications
- Enhance your solution by adding ready-to-go features.
Obviously there may be some overlap between categories with some services. The following table shows how the PaaS Services which are mostly likely to complement a SaaS environment fit into the categories above. Read the complete article here.
