Platform as a Service (PaaS) is a business model where the product is a cloud-based application development platform. It lets customers develop and run their own applications. Using PaaS allows them to avoid building the infrastructure and spend money on the components and tools they would normally need in order to build their apps.

To put it simply, if you wanted to bake a cake you’d need to buy all the utensils and equipment, and require a suitable kitchen as well. If there were a PaaS for baking, all you’d need to do is rent the kitchen with everything you need in there to bake your cake.
