Enterprise developers can consolidate many back-office applications onto a single environment
Telecommunications company AT&T has introduced its Platform as a Service (PaaS) which allows business professional to build, develop and deploy cloud-based business apps without the need for complex coding expertise.
With AT&T PaaS, the company offers enterprise-grade PaaS capabilities in the US, pursuing a piece of the cloud computing market.
AT&T PaaS includes a complete cloud-based development and deployment platform, Web tools and customisable templates for software development, a high-performance, redundant and scalable infrastructure to run online applications and databases and development tools to mobilise applications.
With the new AT&T offering, line of business managers can create new enterprise-grade applications, distribute, and manage them across an entire user base without causing application slow-down or downtime, and independent software vendors can accelerate the time-to-market of their apps.
It enables enterprise developers to consolidate many back-office applications onto a single, fully-managed, secure environment that allows them to be accessible by PCs or mobile devices.
AT&T’s PaaS capability is integrated with its network-based cloud to offer an enterprise-grade package, allowing application developers to build business apps that can take advantage of the scale, performance, capacity, security and reliability.
AT&T Business Solutions Hosting and Cloud Services vice-president Steve Caniano said AT&T Platform as a Service is like rocket fuel for developing cloud apps.
"This is another step in our commitment to helping businesses deliver cloud-based solutions, and we are unique in our ability to surround the ease of use of Platform as a Service with the flexibility, reliability and security of the AT&T global network," said Caniano.
