This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Platform-as-a-Service for business customers ' Telecommunication providers are still searching for business models beyond the bit pipe. While added-value services like Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) become more and more common for private customers as well as small and medium enterprises, in this paper we demonstrate the opportunities of Platform-as-a-Service offerings for specific business domains. By offering such platforms as cloud services, telecommunication providers can leverage their existing communications infrastructure to provide added-value services. Customer-specific SaaS can be created rapidly on such platforms, enabling customized business applications on a rental pricing scheme.
