From business intelligence analysts to top application developers, the debate continues on what is the best way to build rich web-based apps that run on any device via a standard web browser — HTML5 or native code. So which will win out and what does the future look like for the enterprise?
Earlier this year, Incore, a digital agency, published an interactive infographic that goes inside “HTML5 Popularity Among Fortune 500 Companies”. The infographic offers some interesting information and percentages on whether Fortune 500 companies that embrace HTML5 see bigger earnings. Below are a few key quotes from the findings and the infographic itself:
“Corporations that want a functional, knockout website in today’s mobile marketplace are increasingly doing so using HTML5. In fact, over 30% of Fortune 500 companies are taking advantage of all the markup language has to offer as of July this year.”
“XHTML 1.0 Transitional may be the most popular choice as of now among the 500 companies analyzed, but results indicate that those using HTML5 seem to bring in more revenue and profits.”
“Of the 153 Fortune 500 companies that use HTML5, they generated a higher average revenue than 161 companies using XHTML 1.0 Transitional, though those companies earned the highest revenue overall. Companies using HTML5 had average revenue of $27,088,888,889 and an average profit of $2,159,867,974, while those using XHTML 1.0 Transitional had average revenue of $21,681,987,578 and an average profit of $1,099,666,460.”
Many believe that the HTML5 vs. native apps debate matters and breaks down its impact to distribution, monetization, platform power and network effects, and functionality. Will the HTML5 future promise richer and more interactive experiences?
