Android: emerging eco-system and business models

Android and Smart devices are rapidly shifting the ICT4D landscape in developing countries. They influence the entire software development eco-system, while improving the potential development impact.

Latest research carried out by eNovation4D, in collaboration with Sarvodaya-Fusion has developed a unique eco-system map, that illustrates the actors / stakeholders involved in this emerging eco-system. And also it has provided new insights into the motivational factors of individual app developers who have become the critical contributors to this new emerging trend.

Lessons were contributed to the IER 2012 (Information Economy Report) of UNCTAD that features Software industry developments in global environment, to be launched in 28th Nov, 2012.
