As more enterprises look to develop and deploy mobile enterprise apps, companies such as Kinvey are seeing a rapid increase in demand for its Mobile Backend-as-a-Service platform. To help it protect its technology, Kinvey recently received its first patent for technology related to its MBaaS platform, the company announced Tuesday.
CIOs think that mobile app development takes too long and costs too much, according to a survey by mobile back-end-as-a-service provider Kinvey.
One of first mobile backend-as-a-service (MBaaS) startups was Boston-based Kinvey, founded and headed by Sravish Sridhar. FierceMobileIT sat down with Sridhar to discuss the MBaaS phenomenon and broader issues impacting the enterprise mobility market.
The IT landscape is being reshaped through acquisitions and partnerships among traditional IT and cloud players as they try to meet the new demands of enterprise mobility, as well as through the development of mobile-first companies.
