Cloud Computing: Adopting to BPaaS

Since computing was introduced to mankind, one of the biggest boons it has brought to us is data storage. From 50 kb floppy disks to 50 MB compact disks, users are now able to transfer data from one machine to another. With the advent of technology, many portable devices were introduced and data storage was no longer a problem. Similarly, software-licensed copy distribution became very simple thanks to CDs and other mediums. However, as the amount of data and the number of licenses started increasing, the cost to facilitate them also increased. With globalization, servers across the globe have already become loaded with data while organizations are still in need of more servers to continue storing and accessing their data. There is an enormous cost in the maintenance and hosting of these servers on-premises. On the other hand, with the task force going global, services and tools made available to all of them must be of the same standard and without any quality outlaws.

The solution to these vivid issues is cloud computing. With the cloud, it is now easy to store huge data without hosting servers on your premises termed as Infrastructure as a Service. Cloud also enables hosting software and then rendering instances to end users reducing much of the license cost, termed as SaaS – Software as a Service. Many times, making a development or management platform available to multiple users also involves huge cost and feasibility glitches. Cloud resolves this by hosting a service that provides a platform that can help to run, develop, and manage without cost for individual users and is termed as PaaS – Platform as a Service. IaaS, SaaS, and PaaS have brought revolution to many businesses. Cloud has allowed many businesses to focus on their core competency rather than focusing on infrastructure, platforms, and other essentials that are not core to the business. While these service models define the cloud, there is a need for BPS to adopt them. The BPS industry has started leveraging the power of the cloud and has come up with BPaaS which is Business Process as a Service. With BPaaS, BPS has become flexible with reduced cost, and increased efficiency thus delivering more value to customers. Let’s have a look at three foundational Service models of the cloud and how BPaaS has evolved from them.
