Congratulations to Reed and the Summit team for stepping up innovation in our industry. Native cloud, micro-services, lambda, SOA... However you want to spin it, Platform as a Service (PaaS) is here to stay in wealthtech / riatech. If you're not embracing it you're about to get tromped and shut out of near term opportunity. It's not just about performance scaling. It's about service, delivery platform, client and product scale. There is a short list of startups and even shorter list of existing companies that have a true PaaS architectural model. I'm happy to say we're included in that list especially alongside the likes of Summit. Pete Pete Giza | CPO AdvisorPeak
