Six Backend as a Service(BaaS) Providers Discuss the Industry at #APIStrat in NYC

Backend as a Service (BaaS), sometimes called Mobile Backend is a Service (MBaaS) is a growing trend I’m monitoring at API Evangelist. I’m tracking on 20 providers in the space, with two newly added open-source BaaS platforms.

Beyond the research, stories and analysis on BaaS, I just added a BaaS panel at the API Strategy & Practice Conference in New York City, February 21st and 22nd. The panel will include six of the leading BaaS platforms:

API play a critical role in BaaS platforms by providing interfaces for the common services emerging in the BaaS space, like object storage, user management and location, to name a few, but also bring in other 3rd party services like Twitter and Facebook.

I will be moderating this new BaaS panel at APIStrat. Let me know if there are any questions about the space, you’d like me to ask.
