The increase of models as a service and all things connected with them is unstoppable. For some time consumption of a particular service in which you only pay for what you are going to use has been increasing.
We are now in a period in which many online companies are emerging that offer on-demand models, which represent the perfect balance between functionality and value.
Until relatively recently it was very common, and still remains so, to talk about concepts like SaaS (Software as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service), etc. However, it’s now more usual to call these type of cloud-based service models XaaS.
The XaaS concept is fairly new and is used to refer to “everything as a service” provided that these services are installed locally and are presented via the Internet, i.e. that it meets the “aaS” (as a Service) requirements.
Ever more companies have felt attracted by this type of service. They have been won over by this simple reason: their flexibility. “aaS” models allow you to choose the appropriate solutions provider at the right time. Thanks to them, companies can choose the provider with better features when needed.
The advantages that these services provide encourage their continued expansion. These are the latest models that have emerged:
– Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS): tasks related to hardware, software and storage are automated by the provider, and management and monitoring the systems will require more time.
– Desktop as a Service (DaaS): a low-cost infrastructure for VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) that offers many features.
– Disaster recovery as a Service (DRaaS): A model in which the provider sends the data to a server while data is being sent through the cloud to avoid any adversity. Companies use it as a disaster recovery plan.

Open banking has changed the financial paradigm as we have known it so far. The widespread use of new digital platforms, connected devices and technology consumers has led to a boom in business opportunities for every company, many of which are already leveraging their benefits as much as possible.
The digital transformation has not been fully implemented in the automotive sector yet, at least not as quickly as in other distribution sectors. APIs can be this sector's best ally by speeding up its digitization, especially in those areas involving the purchasing process.
In just one year, the second European Payment Services Directive—or PSD2 as it is better known—has created a new scenario combining innovation and security, in which banks have been progressively opening up access to their infrastructure to third parties.
