The number of mobile applications is growing exponentially. There is an app for almost anything you want to do, and everyday, thousands of apps are added to app stores. The demand for mobile apps is also growing. Mobile app developers have to cater to this increasing demand in a rapid manner. Enterprise are increasingly utilizing mobility, and this has led to enterprises developing a large number of enterprise mobile apps that cater to their needs. Developing such apps and governing API calls made by those apps in a standard manner thus becomes a major challenge. This is when choosing a proper Mobile Backend as a Service (mBaaS) platform would be immensely helpful. An mBaaS platform provides enterprise Backend as a Service (BaaS) APIs along with enterprise mobility specific APIs. The mBaaS would provide a rich set of APIs that are readily available to mobile app developers that would enable them to rapidly develop mobile applications. Using the mBaaS APIs, the mobile app developers would be able to make effective use of the enterprise assets in a standard, governed, and secured manner, and it would also allow them to connect the mobile apps to the rest of the business organization. Standard SDKs provided with mBaaS also makes developers’ life easier, and enables rapid development of apps without having to worry about platform-specific complexities.
In this session, Azeez will take you through the concepts behind mBaaS, how it can be utilized by mobile app developers to accelerate enterprise mobile app development, and how an mBaaS adds value by enabling you to connect your apps to the rest of the enterprise.
