There’s no doubt about it, micro apps are on the rise. In the approximately two years since joining the DreamFactory team, I’d estimate I’ve conversed with more than one thousand companies about their API-based projects. These conversations provide a great opportunity to peer inside the IT operations of organizations large and small, not to mention pick up on emerging technology trends. Regarding the latter, over the course of the past year or so two trends have become strikingly clear: the first is that companies of all sizes are gravitating to identity and access management service provider Okta. Second, a titanic migration to Microsoft Azure is under way.
Speculative reasoning behind both of these trends is probably worth a blog post unto itself, however there is a third and arguably far more profound trend that could have major reverberations across the enterprise software industry: growing interest in micro apps.
