Market Overview: Mobile Infrastructure Services Aid Developers

A Rapidly Converging Market Speeds Front-End Developers' Efforts

August 4, 2015


Why Read This Report

Application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals have many technology choices when it comes to building mobile apps that win, serve, and retain customers. One of the principal challenges for dev leaders is keeping front-end mobile developers focused on building useful, engaging apps and insulating them from the potential quicksand of building back-end infrastructure, creating new APIs, and wiring together custom-built or third-party services that aren't mobile ready. Enter a growing number of vendors providing mobile infrastructure service (MIS) platforms. MIS platforms make it easier for front-end developers to build consumer and enterprise mobile apps by providing client software development kits (SDKs) for common services like data connectors, identity, notifications, and analytics. This report provides AD&D pros with an overview of the rapidly converging MIS platform market, the key services that front-end mobile developers need, and the vendors aspiring to provide MIS solutions.
