BFF - Backend for frontends

NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radar.Understand more

Valuable services support many variations in clients, such as mobile versus web and different forms of web interface. It’s tempting to design a single back-end API to support all clients with a reusable API. But client needs vary, as do constraints such as bandwidth for mobile devices versus the desire for lots of data on fast web connections. Consequently it’s often best to define different back-end services for each kind of front-end client. These back ends should be developed by teams aligned with each front end to ensure that each back end properly meets the needs of its client.
