Interesting 4-page white paper on leveraging native architectures as opposed to the more complicated, heavily layered service oriented architectures with considerable challenges especially in terms of cross-platform SLA consistency.  The direction points to a more subscription-based collective of native cloud platforms as opposed to the layer heavy service approach favored in the 90s and still dominant where considerable investments in SOA keep businesses from making the leap.

Sample:

Quote
Multi-tenancy is game changing

Collaboration, shared data, and universal access
provided the catalyst to move software to the
web, enabling a much better delivery vehicle.
The next level, multi-tenant ecosystems,
delivers a game changing architecture.

Multi-tenancy is one of the foundations of
today’s SaaS application and enables
tremendous economies of scale through the
sharing of infrastructure services through a
broad community.

Perhaps you could thumbnail that document. Seems a bit salesy for the dream offering ... How do you see this as game changing? Isn't the no-tier notion really kind of a catchphrase for THEIR layer?

Perhaps I am really missing it. Would like a deeper explanation.

I see how this could be misinterpreted.  They're not simply saying "use us, no tiers, life is good."  They're also endorsing using other SaaS/PaaS offerings and tying them together without the traditional notion of tiers.  So rather than a low-level API layered approach to joining SFDC data to your ERP/CRM/etc. system, use each in a more native way and tie them together with a more subscription or direct approach.  Each cloud doing what it does best and being the database of record for their strengths.  Then rather than composing complicated matrices of clouds use each for what they do best and regain SLA confidence.

Perhaps more later - have to go Smiley

I thought ITTO meant it was interesting because of the density of catch phrases in the article.
