IDC Innovators: Cloud Platform-as-a-Service/PaaS Technologies, 2022
IDC Innovators are emerging vendors with revenue <$100 million that have demonstrated either a groundbreaking business model or an innovative new technology — or both. This IDC Innovators study profiles five vendors in the cloud platform-as-a-service (PaaS) technologies market: Vercel, Zenity, Netlify, Severalnines, and Render. Solutions offered by these companies accelerate value for developers and their organizations.
"In the digital-first world, companies that are serious about competing for the long-term use the lens of business outcomes to evaluate strategic technology decisions, which drives the fast-growing ecosystem seen in the PaaS market. Each of the vendors profiled in this IDC Innovators document contributes to making developers more productive and helps businesses differentiate themselves by providing better experience to end users," said Lara Greden, research director, Platform as a Service. "Some major cloud platform service providers may have similar offerings or approaches to the vendors we identified, but a clear point of differentiation is that the identified vendors allow for multicloud and/or cloud-agnostic deployments, thereby simplifying the ability for customers to deliver on digital innovation strategies while empowering developers."
