As the world is moving forward with crazy speed, new digital services are coming to the market. To comply with the needs of the changing digital arena, today’s digital services are going on beyond our thinking.
Digital services are becoming complex day by day. And as of now, it is almost impossible to control everything by one person or a single group because of the variety of the task we need to do. Building a fully compatible digital service with any single application, single team, or by any single means is almost impossible nowadays and therefore, you need to assign a special team for special works.
There are two major types of services that need attention for any business. The first one is the frontend and the second, the most important one is the backend. Let us explain.
You meet a man. You are seeing his hand, eyes, and appearance. This is front-end. So, as a front-end user you will see what is in front of you.
On the other hand, that man everything is controlled by his own structure like a backbone, heart, kidneys, etc which you do not see. These things can be termed as backend. So, it means as a frontend user you will not be able to see the inside of a digital product, whereas as a backend developer you will build the systems so that the user sees.
Why Backend works is important?
For any digital product, backend works are like the backbone of the human body. The backend delivers those things, that are asked by the frontend user. So, if your backbone is not strong enough you will not be able to deliver the asked services to your client. That’s the only reason backend works should be strong enough. You can either do the backend works by yourself or you can hire some person or company to handle it on your behalf.
Why Backend as a Service(BaaS) has Emerged?
Already been said, it is impossible to maintain everything by one person or team. Therefore, backend service emerged to help digital companies to serve the best to their customers or client.
Readymade BaaS vs. Custom BaaS
Both ready-made BaaS and custom made BaaS has good and bad sides. Readymade BaaS is user-friendly and takes less time to develop whereas custom BaaS has the option to be made as per your request. So, custom BaaS offers more flexibility than ready-made BaaS. But to build custom BaaS requires a lot of time and hence capturing the market requires additional time for digital services. As custom BaaS requires coding from scratch the cost f developing the whole system will incur more cost than of ready-made BaaS.
Mobile Backend as a Service or mBaaS is pretty same as BaaS except that it would be for mobile users. For example, for an application based on Android, mBaaS can play a vital role to scale up its usability and speed.
