- Difficulty in integrating context
- Old data generation & Maintenance
- Extracting data for mobile needs
- Backend application testing & logic integration
- Security issues & authentication aspects
- Building your own mobile interface taking time and resources.

- BYOD and mobile networks mean IT’s lost control of the endpoint and edge network.
Benefits of MBaaS:
- Saves developers’ time and money as user authentication is already performed.
- Reduces complexity by dealing with the complex server side programming, reducing the redundancy in creating backend code blocks, providing ready to integrate features and template backend, thereby facilitating quicker development by 70% reduction of time usage.
- Developers can concentrate more on the front end of the applications with design specification and the application marketing.
- Completely abstracts the server-side infrastructure.
- Helps deliver a near-native application user experience.
- Supports an application across multiple platforms.
- Helps enterprises to extend database to mobile devices or web apps through APIs and connectors.
- Integration of APIs with flawless support for backend enterprise.
- The client-side developers can use reusable APIs in microservices architecture.

The MBaaS market is one of the fastest growing cloud services delivery model. Considering the number of players operating in the market, it surpasses the PaaS market. So it would be wise to select a MBaaS provider who can integrate one or more services via their ESB to Molecular Mobile Application Development Platform – MMADP that can compile and create native and hybrid builds in few clicks.
