Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) systems offer customers a rich environment in which to build, deploy, and run applications. Today’s PaaS offerings are tailored mainly to the needs of web and mobile applications developers, and involve a fairly rigid stack of components and features. The vision of the H2020 5GPPP Phase 2 Next Generation Platform-as-a-Service (NGPaaS) project is to develop an integrated framework that enables “build-to-order” and customized PaaSes, tailored to the needs of a wide range of use cases and business scenarios. A diverse set of services and applications can be catered for in vertical Marketplaces such as Fixed Telco, Mobile (5G) and Internet-of-Things (IoT). This white paper introduces and outlines the key innovative characteristics of the NGPaaS concept, and explores the potential benefits and market opportunities that could arise for network operators.
