  1. Why would a company like this with so much powerful software wait for developers to create the next big thing when they should be building it themselves? Compare to having an oil reserve and calling out pumper developers to tap your reserve when you have access to a pump of your own just an arms reach away.

    1. Heroku’s platform itself is pretty amazing. Any developer that I have demonstrated Heroku for has walked away with their mouth dropped and saying “OMG, seriously? It’s that easy?”

      There’s innovation in the platform space (look at what RackSpace is doing with their OpenStack. Heroku is just doing their innovation and powerful software on a platform level rather than the application level.

      1. You make great points and I am not surprised that many people are focusing on platform innovation. I think companies like Heroku become more valuable as we start to push more and more stuff to the Internet.
