Building a custom infrastructure for your application or product is hard and offers no real benefit or competitive advantage. A recent study comparing 25+ startups revealed that despite differences in function and market segment, their architecture and technology requirements were nearly identical. Data Integration, Real-Time capabilities, API Authoring and Cognitive Automation were a common theme across all infrastructures regardless of industry or business model.
Remarkably, almost 90% of initial start-up funds are spent on developing platform infrastructure. An investment that most start-ups never recover. Cloud vendors are of little help, offering a menu of hundreds of services and components to implement your ideas. Choosing the wrong combination of tools can have serious impact on budgets, timelines and scalability. The StreamScape platform provides broad functionality needed to develop a Minimal Viable Product and scale it as needed. Why spend the time and money re-inventing infrastructure, when you can lease the functionality as you implement, pivot and grow.
