Did you know that employees spend approximately 20% of their computer time hunting for the data and features they need inside enterprise applications? Rather than working on specific job tasks, they are getting lost in a maze of log-in prompts and dropdown menus — losing a fifth of their productivity in the process. Having a well defined microapp strategy is therefore an important part of increasing your organisation’s productivity.

Every time someone uses an app, information travels from a database to the user via an API. Single instances may not seem very important. As long as they perform the required task, people don’t think too much about how applications work. From a business perspective, though, the big data flowing through APIs could unlock important knowledge that helps tap into emerging trends and target customers better. To get the best results, though, companies need the best big data API management.

Serverless Computing is considered to be the fourth wave of computing where x86 servers, virtual machines, and containers represented the first three generations. With this new paradigm, developers can squarely focus on the code and without the need to deal with the underlying infrastructure. They never have to plan the number of servers, amount of storage, and the network topology of deployments. Since the platform deals with one function at a time, and functions are the fundamental deployment units, this model is often called Functions as a Service (FaaS).

Never Build an API Again. An enterprise-grade API as a service platform available in the cloud or on-premise. Generate database APIs instantly to build applications faster.

Integrate any SQL or NoSQL database, file storage system, or external HTTP or SOAP service and DreamFactory instantly generates a flexible, comprehensive, and fully documented REST API endpoint that’s ready to use. Focus on building your applications, not hand-coding APIs for every new development project.

Benefits:
