This Sector Roadmap™ identifies and categorizes the principal disruption vectors at play and profiles a number of significant solution providers in the space. Key findings include:
The MBaaS market is comprised of vendors from four key markets: pure-play mobile backends, traditional MEAP/MADP providers, PaaS vendors, and API enablers.
Over the next 24 months, the MBaaS market will be disrupted by five Disruption Vectors: a convergence of features from multiple products, a growing importance of mobile-first development, a need for increased control of data assets, a need to unlock corporate data silos, and the growing influence of DevOps and Agile methodologies in mobile development.
In the coming years, the lines between MBaaS and PaaS will blur, and vendors will create a more integrated development stack. In the near term, enterprises should meet their needs with MBaaS offerings that provide the greatest flexibility in deployment and tool choice.
