  • (1888PressRelease) February 16, 2016 - MbaaS is a relatively new app development concept as compared to other cloud-based service delivery models like PaaS, SaaS, IaaS and DaaS, and first time it was introduced by Parse. The application development platform called itself as a 'Heroku for Mobile'.

    Suddenly, on January 28, Facebook announced about the shutting down of Parse and gave one year to the developers for finding the alternate way. Moreover, Parse also offers app migration guidelines for its clients, but it is not sufficient. For example, Parse provides MongoDB, a simple and restrictive tool for data migration., but, this tool doesn't give a data migration path with an app backend for added the services such as security, access to microservices, code execution engine and much more.

    The above example clearly indicates that Parse has no more interest in app developers and it starts neglecting the apps. Therefore, Parse developers are now searching a new home for developing and hosting their apps.

    Everybody knows that Parse became one of the most popular app development platforms in a short time while attracting some of the renowned clients such as Hipmunk and Weebly. Hence, to gain a huge number of Parse users, majority of platforms come forward & pretending themselves as a Parse alternative.

    Among them, very few innovative mobile app development platforms can become a real alternative for Parse, and Configure.IT is one of them. Configure.IT offers a perfect solution for the pain of Parse users while giving the simplest way to migrate their apps from Parse. Developers can readily transfer their entire data from Parse to Configure.IT into the MySQL database using the Parse Data Migration tool. Additionally, users can store and manage the unlimited amount of data with the powerful content management system (CMS) of Configure.IT.

    Why Configure.IT is better
    Parse has created the application database in Mongo DB & Node JS, which makes it complex. While Configure.IT makes this task simpler by converting the app in LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP), the most accepted approach by an app development industry. With Configure.IT, users can get 100% IP ownership, and download the whole source code with backend at any time. Hence, developers have no need to migrate from it.
