This IDC study reports on the two prior years as the market measurements have matured. It also provides a competitive analysis of the worldwide public cloud platform-as-a-service market and the associated submarkets in the calendar year 2019."The demand for applications together with the maturity in skills is accelerating benefits that forward-thinking companies are gaining from implementing PaaS as a core set of capabilities used by developers. Modern application platforms consisting of a containers-first and serverless-first approach are popular in building new applications by start-ups and making its way to enterprises. Low-code/no-code approaches are helping companies overcome the developer shortage in building applications at a very fast pace. With an increasing number of on-premises infrastructure deployments available, the barrier to PaaS adoption is decreasing although requiring cloud-native tools and architecture for portability. Open source container deployment is a core capability of PaaS offerings to meet customer expectations in avoiding vendor lock-in." -- Larry Carvalho, research director, PaaS
