This IDC Perspective showcases the journey of a leading enterprise security company from a portfolio of discrete offerings to a comprehensive cloud platform. The document describes the five tenants that are typically present in a business platform. The case study features Qualys, a leading provider of security and compliance cloud solutions.
"Platform business models have been around for decades. Cloud-enabled digital transformation has accelerated the creation of platforms across industries. Platforms have overtaken financial services and energy. Thirteen out of the top 30 companies on Interbrand are platform businesses. For SaaS providers, platforms can accelerate growth and drive greater retention and expansion opportunities," according to Frank Della Rosa, research director, SaaS and Cloud Software, Business Platforms, and Ecosystems at IDC.
