Appcelerator’s Quarterly Survey Results show iOS dominant in the Enterprise

For all the talk about how Apple is not enterprise friendly, I was surprised to find the news that more than 50% of enterprise app developers want to target iOS in the quarterly survey that Appcelerator runs.

This shift from Android to iOS continues to reflect, in my opinion, the challenges of targeting Android’s plethora of form factors, and the continued dominance of the iPad in the enterprise for tablets.  I am not sure that this result will last too long, given the amazing popularity of the Nexus tablet, and the continued lack of a 7 inch iPad option.

The other big potential monkey wrench is Windows 8 and its support of both Desktop and Tablets in one package.  This should make for some interesting times for App developers over the next year.
