Abstract: In this study, the authors evaluate business, procedural and technical factors in the implementation of platform-as-a-service(PaaS), as to their significance on projects and on a larger strategy. The authors learn from financial firms innovating in PaaS that procedural and business factors manifested more significance on PaaS projects than technical factors, which may facilitate an optimal strategy with this technology if the firms pursue such a strategy. The findings of this study benefit educators enhancing curricula of information systems for current evolutions of cloud computing systems in industry.
