Blog-post by,

Sometimes, I worry the conversation around Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) is sending the wrong message. The impression tends to be that there is a battle over application development between the camps of High-Productivity and High-Control. On one side, the High-Productivity advocates favor low-code approaches that enable average workers to create their own applications. On the other side, supporters of High-Control would rather work in agile environments where they can finely tune their finished apps.
