    Mesh App and Service Architecture

    In the mesh app and service architecture (MASA), mobile apps, web apps, desktop apps and IoT apps link to a broad mesh of backend services to create what users view as an "application." The architecture encapsulates services and exposes APIs at multiple levels and across organizational boundaries, balancing the demand for agility and scalability of services with composition and reuse of services. The MASA enables users to have an optimized solution for targeted endpoints in the digital mesh (e.g., desktop, smartphone, automobiles) as well as a continuous experience as they shift across these different channels.
