This is an awesome
1. Live documentation of REST API's is a pain for developers DreamFactory solved this using Swagger-UI this is most interesting and lovable thing done by DreamFactory. (Note;This type of feature is also available with Strongloops' Loopback.io)
2. Security is the main concern for anyone whoever you name it from a serious developer to Enterprises DreamFactory handles it in a very decent way.
3. Compare to DreamFactory - 1.0 user interface got improved in DreamFactory-2.0 (Yes this means a lot for me !!) which reduced a lot of mismanagement while working with admin related stuff.
4. Ready made installers for every cloud provider and for local development this made my life easier.
I would recommend DreamFactory for small seized teams in IoT,& Sector as it reduces the amount of time spend on managing,creating and bug fixing while working with custom build REST API's
we have used DreamFactory for 2-3 web and mobile applications it not only reduces amount of work done for setup,installation but improved our team productivity.
For Web & Mobile Backend as a Middleware
