The development of mobile apps today is practically inconceivable without associated server-side development work, and stable server operations are a definite requirement for success in the app business.
Dedicated network engineers are indispensable in readying steadfast server programs and stable server operations. In addition, the scale of required server capacity is particularly difficult to forecast prior to service launch. Superb ideas built out may lose the opportunity to acquire users, if inappropriate server capacity triggers an incident like a server failure immediately after release.
As it turns out, the server functions that many mobile apps require are quite common, such as user login, file upload, and data access management.
Mobile BaaS (backend as a service) provides these general-purpose server functions as Web APIs, so the application vendor can concentrate time, cost, and human resources on the development of inherent functions and improved UX of the mobile app.
