Benefit of Using Mobile Backend as a Service Provider for Enterprise
I wrote some benefit of using Backend as a Service previously. Not only for startup, Mobile Backend as a Service is also useful for enterprise. MBaaS solutions modularize the backend systems used in mobile apps. Commonly used services like data storage, user management, push notifications, social networking services and others are hosted on a centralized server stack and exposed as a service.
Gartner estimates that 40 percent of mobile app development projects will leverage cloud mobile backend services by 2016. What is driving this adoption? In a word: agility. MBaaS (Mobile Backend as a Service) solutions facilitate enterprise agility by enabling developers to be more responsive to business needs.
All these solution offer enterprise agility for startups. Business runs well for developers because Mobile Backend as a Service or (MBaaS) helps their job and make it as easy as possible. Development process is not the hardest part anymore. Instead, they can focus on the delivery and marketing strategy.
Here are some benefits if you are choosing Mobile Backend as a Service:
1. Reduce Development Cost
Developing an apps doesn’t require much effort and cost. End-to-end infrastructure mobile apps requires development effort, high cost, and specialized programming skills. MBaaS can cut off all of these. For short, Mobile Backend as a Service will do the infrastructure side, so you don’t need much effort and cost
2. Fast Delivery to the Market
Without MBaaS, developers have to individually incorporate each of these services into every mobile app they build. As mentioned in the point number 1, Mobile Backend as a Service cut off the infrastructure side process. It means you can focus more of your time, effort, and cost on the front end of the app and deliver faster to the market.
I also wrote some strategy tips about mobile apps launch. You can check it here.
3. Collaborative Work on App Development
Mobile Backend as a Service often allows their user for collaborative work. It’s one of features that allows team to work on their apps in the same platform. Team can work together on source code and shared APIs.
4. Real Time Access
Mobile Backend as a Service solutions enable developers to simply provide mobile apps with access to real-time data. With this MBaaS solution, developers can to existing data sources, such as ERP or CRM databases, without having to move or modify them. The data is made available to the mobile app through APIs or SDKs.
5. Multiple Platforms Development
Developers can easily develop apps for different platforms in one Mobile Backend as a Service. Without MBaaS, developers have to develop functionality to reach into backend systems, generate push notifications and enable geolocation features in each platform. MBaaS will provide you with SDKs for each platform. It’s much easier if you want to manage and scale up your backend easily.
With Mobile Backend as a Service solution, you can develop your own apps in a simple way as possible. Managing and scaling up you apps will be faster than developing end-to-end mobile application since MBaaS cut off the complicated process.
