Challenges and Opportunities in the BaaS Market

apis

The Backend as a Service (BaaS) market has mushroomed over the past five years. App developers find that using BaaS services frees them to focus on the more inspiring aspects of their profession. They have therefore rushed to entrust BaaS service providers with those less glamorous but nevertheless all so vital development tasks. For example, BaaS offers a highly effective way of handling server coding, database hosting, backup and other tasks that create and maintain the supporting environment app development requires. “Backend” is a most appropriate choice of word since these activities provide the framework within which the more exciting app development tasks are implemented. When these activities are managed by a third party the developer has much more time to devote to the innovations that make new apps so appealing.

Are you looking for an effective Backend as a Service solution to power the backend of your applications?

A robust backend of an application ensures its success and enhances its credibility. No matter how attractive your application looks, the absence of a powerful backend can fail your application to deliver the best.

However, when it comes to picking the best backend solution, multiple factors are vital in making a successful selection. Considering compelling features of your preferred services are essential. However, Parse and Firebase are two well-known backend options available. Let’s get deep into these solutions to know which can work the best for you.

Google has recently released a new version of Firebase. It provides a unified platform to build Android, iOS, and Web Apps. Admob, Analytics, Authentication, Indexing, Test Lab, ML, and Notifications are some of the new features introduced in the latest version of Firebase.

Parse Server is a better choice to build new apps or APIs. Read on to get a sense of comparison between the two and understand why Parse Server is still better.


Parse Self-hosting or hosting provider ?

Given the fact that Parse will be permanently shuttered on January 28, 2017, you have two options to host your apps.
1. Setting up the self-hosted Parse Server and then releasing a new app pointing to it
2. Migrating to a cloud hosting company that can provide Parse hosting service

There are pros and cons of each of these options. Here I discuss a few of them which may help you choose the better of the two that best suits you.

Parse Webhooks

As comunicações de servidor a servidor do Webhooks mantêm os desenvolvedores informados sobre eventos de aplicativos conectados a várias interações de usuários e dispositivos. Eles ficam livres para trabalhar em sua linguagem de codificação preferida e definir uma URL para receber um POST vinculado a um gatilho, por exemplo, beforeSave e afterSave em objetos, ou quando uma determinada função de nuvem é chamada. Enquanto o servidor estiver em execução  o Cloud Code é capaz de integrar com webhooks.
