A cloud service platform, as well as the SaaS (Software as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service), or IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) solutions supplied via a cloud service platform, are all examples of what is referred to as an enterprise cloud solution. When an enterprise cloud solution isn’t a platform for cloud services, it often adheres to the conventional model of IT service delivery: it’s made to handle a particular business function, including accounting, document storage, electronic message delivery, software development, etc.

By extending the actual cloud infrastructure services and cloud application services necessary to successfully deliver SaaS, PaaS, or IaaS offerings to an enterprise, Enterprise Cloud Solutions that serve as cloud service platforms set themselves apart from the SaaS, PaaS, or IaaS offerings that they deliver. No matter the application, a corporate cloud solution ultimately needs to offer all the resources required to carry out the necessary business processes in an integrated manner, within the constraints of the cloud architecture that delivers the solution. Any enterprise cloud solution’s ultimate objective is to deliver the tools required to administer or support a particular collection of business operations, systems, or resources.

Integration of enterprise cloud solutions.

Either a private cloud or a public cloud can be used to develop an enterprise cloud solution. Utilizing a private cloud means that a company is entirely responsible for the delivery of every cloud solution inside of its corporate private cloud. In contrast, when a company uses a public business cloud, the external vendor must expand the necessary cloud platform to the Internet in order to make it easier for each client to receive its enterprise cloud solutions (organization). Any kind of cloud solution, including a private enterprise cloud inside a public cloud that is only accessible by one organisation or entity, can be delivered to a company by the external vendor (i.e., cloud services provider).

Without spending money on expensive capital investments in platforms, equipment, or software, external cloud service providers can deliver their solutions through a PaaS implementation, like Apprenda’s Private PaaS offering. Software as a Service (SaaS) distribution is made flexible and affordable by Apprenda, which also offers automated customer on-boarding and provisioning, application lifecycle management, subscription management, billing, and metering. Customers who use Apprenda’s Private PaaS with SaaS enablement will be using the most affordable application delivery approach currently offered in the IT industry.
