The Visionmobile Developer Economics site has a new post on how building enterprise apps is paying 4x more than consumer apps. This seems to vindicate my previous posts where I mentioned that I saw opportunities in building more enduring apps for business solutions rather than trying to target consumers via free apps, paid apps and freemium with (usually entertainment) apps that usually have a very short shelf life.
The Developer Economics post also has a comment where someone asks how to court enterprise clients in that it seems the largest barrier to entry. Those who follow me will already know I advocate forming the company with people who already know the domain and have deep contacts in that industry. Knowing the domain means you are more likely to be solving a real problem, the app is likely to be nearer ‘right first time’ and the contacts help you gain early traction.
