Backend as a Service (BaaS) also referred to as Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS), is an approach for allowing web developers and mobile app developers to connect applications to backend cloud storage. It also helps them provide popular features such as social networking integration, push notifications and user management. Similar to Platform as a Service (PaaS), BaaS also aims to accelerate application development, and provides developers with resources including messaging tools, content, API driven services, etc.
Mobile applications have been enjoying steady demand over the past few years, and have become a crucial business segment in the IT space. Surge in demand for smartphones and bundled applications have intensified competition, and availability of useful applications has become a key parameter for purchasing a mobile phone. Trends such as bring your own device (BYOD) have spurred the need for rapid application development, which is expected to be a significant market driver. Companies have been offering middleware, integrated development environment (IDE), software development kit (SDK), and server side infrastructure for increasing ease of development. For instance, Facebook acquired cloud-based platform Parse in 2013, which provides backend services and eliminates the need for managing servers and complex infrastructure.
The host of benefits offered by BaaS is expected to favorably impact the market over the next few years. These include efficiency gains, provision of a bundled infrastructure that deals with operational concerns such as security and scalability, and faster time to market among others. Developers of all platforms require BaaS for higher efficiency; however, it is particularly popular for mobile platforms of Android and iOS. Since it helps abstract the complexities of managing infrastructure, developers can focus on front-end activities, marketing, etc.
North America is expected to be the largest market segment over the next few years; the market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow higher than the global average. There exist a significant number of startups in the industry, and the degree of competition is high. Major market participants include Apple Inc., Microsoft Corporation, appMobi, BaasBox, Deployd, Kinvey, Proxomo Software, and StackMob among others.
