  • Revisiting mobile platforms with a German flavor | Software Industry Survey
    development hours but still tell that Windows Phone is being taken quite seriously at least in the Finnish developer community However we were left puzzled about the scale of the phenomenon Was there just a general WP buzz among Finnish companies that caused them tick the future facing WP box in our questionnaire without having any concrete projects in mind Or perhaps Finnish companies are seeing market opportunities within Finland due to Nokia s new strategy Our recently launched German sister study gives a bit of a roader perspective onto the topic Similar to our study it targets firms based on their industry classification However their findings of WP development also show that the platform is doing quite strong among firms that develop mobile software To further compare the German situation to the most recent Finnish data now with 341 responses I drew the following graph It turns out that the Germans were developing for WP just as often as the Finnish firms 1 As a disclaimer the responding German firms were larger than the Finnish respondents median revenue 500k vs 285k and considered themselves to be software product firms more often 50 vs 35 2 Size however does not seem to shake the platform distribution much but firm type does Software development service firms are more likely to be interested in WP than software product firms This means that Finnish development service firms are probably more keen on WP as illustrated in the following image 3 Looking at future plans WP seems to be also much on the German companies minds as well with about 30 of both Finnish and German firms planning significant software development with service firms the national differences even out Conclusion Planning future WP development in high numbers is not just a strange phenomenon in

  • Is Windows Phone Development a Passing Trend? | Software Industry Survey
    about half of the respondents had plans for Windows Phone in 2012 Taken together the popularity of Windows Phone seemed to be driven by the industry s overall shift toward mobile platforms synergies between MS desktop and mobile development and a Nokia driven Finland effect which is more about perceived opportunity than unavoidable necessity Is there a bubble Looking at our preliminary 2012 data 130 responses out of an expected 500 is there any sign of the Windows Phone euphoria fading The following figure looks at how realized platform adoption for development purposes changed when comparing companies in 2010 and 2011 As Mikko wrote in his previous blog the share of companies developing for Windows Phone has more than doubled from 4 1 to 8 5 making it the clear number 3 behind Android and iOS in line with the Appcelerator developer interest survey This indicates robust growth for the platform but similar growth can also be seen for Android and iPad applications Only iOS development for the iPhone shows signs of leveling out and the margin compared WP is narrow Slightly surprisingly Symbian and Meego are still hovering at 2010 levels We believe that this is largely due to maintenance of existing software in the last figure they are expected to collapse But can we expect that almost quarter of Finnish Software companies will have significant development for WP by the end of 2012 as our 2010 survey indicated Looking back at the outcomes of 2011 this would require a three fold increase within a year and having twice as many firms developing for WP than Android had in 2011 the platform with the largest installed base in the world So is there a WP expectation bubble in the Finnish Software Industry Our answer is a clear yes there
