As mobile app development continues to surge in popularity, so too does the demand for backend solutions that can handle scale – that is, apps with large and growing user bases and databases. Until now, there has been a lack of options in this area, but Backendless is changing all that. With its innovative platform, developers and entrepreneurs can create powerful mobile and web apps with complete confidence that their backend needs will be met. Even better, the platform offers this right out of the box, with no coding required. From start to finish, Backendless provides everything you need to get your app off the ground and running smoothly.
Backendless is leading the way in mobile and web app development. Their software solutions make it possible for both people without coding experience as well as professional coders to rapidly design and develop a fully functioning mobile app that can be published to the App Store and Google Play or as a web app.
But unlike other major platforms, Backendless is taking it one step further. While most other companies are focusing on improving user interface – what the user sees on their screen – Backendless has invested significant time and resources to develop the backend of your mobile app experience – what happens behind the scenes.
“The vision of the company is to provide an end-to-end platform,” Piller said, “And core to our vision is the idea that scalability should be something that is available as a service.”
In the past, a scalable service was always associated with high cost. Businesses would have to bring in expensive consultants or engineers or would need to purchase high-priced hardware to achieve their goals.
“This was a problem we wanted to solve, where scalability would be available out of the box to anyone who builds applications with Backendless,” Piller said, “We thought it would be unfair to build a fantastic app, release it, and when users start coming in, then you have this death screen.”
Scalability is a major factor in Backendless’ goal to make application development accessible to everyone, regardless of their programming background.
“There are tens of thousands of registered developers with Backendless, and there are thousands of apps that are published and actively being used,” Piller said, “We have games running, we have complete mobile banking powered by Backendless, we have public universities and e-commerce stores. It can be used to build any kind of application.”
Because of their commitment to developing a powerful backend for their applications, Backendless makes it possible to not only create a beautiful app, but one that can be used no matter how large your business becomes.
“So many companies focus on user interface, because that is what catches the user,” Piller said, “But the actual backend scalability is often neglected. One thing I keep repeating to our team, and to any customer we talk to, is you could spend a lot of money on the UI and make it super attractive and easy to use – but then you launch it and your backend doesn’t scale. Then, when you have your first 10 thousand or 100 thousand or a million users, the value of your UI is going to be absolute zero, because nobody can use your app.”
With Backendless, users no longer have to worry about the problem of scalability. Piller’s team has made it possible to create a mobile app that is not only beautiful, but one that can grow as your company grows – without an added expense.
And for the team at Backendless, that is an important part of their mission.
“If scalability is something that everyone can benefit from,” Piller said, “Then I think the world would just be a better place.”
