Category Report: Diagramming

In our “Category Report” series of blog posts we break down individual categories and look into them in a bit more depth. Today we will be looking at Diagramming apps. In MARS Diagramming apps are apps that bring diagramming and graphing functionality into Jira and Confluence
Diagramming is one of the larger marketplace categories with 81,000 instances, 94% of which are on paid apps. With the market share for paid diagramming apps at 94% (versus 64% for the marketplace as a whole) we can see that when it comes to diagramming the overwhelming majority of users believe that the added investment into a paid product is worth it.
