I’ve just noticed that over on openshift.com they have an intriguing calculator that claims to Calculate the Business Benefits of PaaS and to generate a dollar value for moving to PaaS, quoting directly from the page:
Platform as a Service (PaaS) is a powerful cloud solution that can help solve real problems today. With PaaS you can enable your developers to work faster and allow your operations team to provide real business value by reducing time-to-market for key IT services.
Use the OpenShift Enterprise Benefit Estimator to help you calculate the potential impact of:
- Accelerated application development
- Automated application provisioning and config
- Web-scale application operations
- Increased hardware utilization efficiency
This tool can also help you estimate the benefits your organization could gain by implementing OpenShift Enterprise in your environment.
I’d be interested to hear how readers get on and it would be great if you could comment on this post with your results, anonymise your company if you want, but it would be interesting to hear your thoughts on the results.
