It is recommended that the survey is pared down to about 20 questions so that we get a better response rate and acturate results

Objective

As telco operators gain experience with managing workloads on cloud infrastructures, they have come to realise that their business agility is hampered by the lack of a “platform” services required  by Telco services for simplified and agile applications development and enable smooth delivery to production.  The services platform, offered as a General Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) on the cloud, should consist of a pre-defined comprehensive set of capabilities that enable faster development using an integrated set of software tools, products and services, with built-in automated life-cycle management, or simply the necessary platform services for Day 0, Day 1 and Day 2 applications development, delivery, deployment and production.   

The objective of this Survey is to understand the state of the industry and trends.  Your and your organisation's input to identify and prioritise the Categories and the set of Platform Services that should be provided by the General PaaS is critical to achieve the objective. In addition, so as to understand the integration challenges, your inputs on the software tools, products and services that you use or intend to use for each of the Platform Services is of utmost importance.

Thanks for helping us by completing this survey.

Survey Organization




Diagram: XGVela Architecture


The diagram puts the context of General PaaS and the Platform Service Categories in the context of the physical infrastructure, IaaS, CaaS and Telco PaaS.  This survey is organised by Categories of Platform Services, and then for each Platform Service software and service choices. You may also add your own suggestions if you find something you feel belongs is missing (see Instructions). In each section we would like you to prioritize the provided selections and any that you add.


Instructions



  • Please review the PaaS Stack areas and define any that are missing including Categories, Platform Services, Software and API choices for the Platform Services.
    • You will find empty, except for a box (for priority entry) to enter additional choices.
    • Each category has empty slots for adding additional Platform Services.
    • At the end of the listed Categories, there is space for defining new Categories and Platform Services that belong to the category.
    • For each Platform Service (after the Section on Categories) you will find a listing of some tools, software and API choices. You will also find empty slots for adding any missing selection.
  • Please rate your selections by priority from 1 (lowest importance) - 10 (highest is most important). These should be entered in the box to the left of the entry.

General PaaS Definition

  • The General PaaS consists of a set of common platform services (through APIs exposed to applications or to other platform services) that can be offered by any Cloud Service Provider.
  • The General PaaS capabilities can be used by industry specific PaaS such as a Telco PaaS.
  • The General PaaS abstracted capabilities are needed to develop, manage and provide common services (such as security) for applications.
  • The General PaaS capabilities are usually provided through open APIs, optionally they can also be used provided by the libraries.

Please rate your priority 1 (lowest) - 10 (highest) in the box left of the entries (PaaS Categories and the Platform Services).
Please add a Platform Service that you feel is missing from the pre-defined Categories.
Please add missing PaaS Categories and constituent Platform Services under the section to add new categories.
