Report: Enterprise Mobile Apps More Lucrative Than Consumer Apps
In its "Developer Economics Q1 2015: State of the Developer Nation" report, VisionMobile said that there is something of a "gold rush" in the enterprise mobile app space. According to the survey, the percentage of developers writing enterprise apps has increased from 16 percent to 20 percent in just six months.
The reason for the sudden interest in enterprise apps? Money. "43 percent of enterprise app developers make more than $10,000 per month versus 19 percent of consumer app developers reaching the same revenue level," the report claims.
The report also found that "the percentage of developers using cross-platform tools has grown from 23 percent to 30 percent over the last six months."
