In my previous post, I examined the evolution of Internet systems' complexity and business models. We looked at how commonly used software applications have grown more and more complex and the things that people and companies are doing with the Internet today are qualitatively different than they were a decade ago.
This time – how the Internet backplane model is changing to support these new usage and business models.

The Internet has revolutionized and transformed business, commerce, and culture and the changes in the Invisible Internet to support all this are no less revolutionary.

The shift to mobile makes it necessary for enterprises to change the way they engage their customers – we see this all the time with new consumer services such as Uber and Exec disrupting older models. So the imperative and opportunity is to enable enterprises to reach their customers through new types of mobile apps. Trigger.io allows enterprises to reuse their existing web skills and investments to create native mobile apps while Apigee provides a “backend-as-service” solution. This blog post describes how we recently created a native iOS app with a remote data store without ever provisioning a server or writing a line of Objective-C!
