The Next Gold Mine For App Developers
Even though we’re just in the early stages of mobile adoption in the enterprise, we see a growing number of businesses, governmental and non-profit organisations, using apps to cut costs and improve customer satisfaction. But what does this mean for mobile app developers?
According to the findings from the “Developer Economics” report by Vision Mobile, developers who target enterprises (16%) are twice as likely to be earning over $5k per app per month and nearly 3 times as likely to earn over $25k.
While Apple is claiming adoption by 98% of the Fortune 500 companies, the numbers show that iOS developers targeting enterprises are about 2.5 times more likely to be earning over $25k per app per month than their Android counterparts. Still 74% of developers target Android, while only 64% iOS.
Is this good news for indie developers? As an indie developer or as a small development shop you rarely get access to enterprise clients, so we’ll probably see in the coming future a consolidation around the big players in the mobile arena. Did you had any experience building enterprise apps? How did it went?
