Cloud Taxonomy

  • Forrester established a cloud taxonomy that covers Infrastructure as a service (Iaas), Platform/middleware as a service (PaaS), Software/applications as a service (SaaS), Business process as a service (BPaaS).
  • Some interesting and pragmatic thoughts about the cloud can be found here.
  • AWS stands for Amazon Web Services.
  • Economic Recovery and Next Generation Application Platforms by Stefan Ried, Senior Analyst, Forrester Research. Particularly interesting slides: Slide #2 – Elephant, Slide #14 – Innovation Pendulum, Slide #33 – The second generation of SaaS is based on PaaS, Slide #35 – Cloud Taxonomy, Slide #51 – Provider Diversity.
