Welcome to the new Apps in the 500 Club!
When we started our analysis over a year ago, we wanted to understand if there was any major Pareto effect in the marketplace while we also needed a way to determine who we should prioritize in adding to our categories. As a reminder vendors self select their categories on the Atlassian marketplace. It’s certainly democratic yet it can mean if you want to know who the real players are in any category, there is a lot of “noise”. To cut through the noise our categories on AppWorld assign apps based on their primary utility.
We’re now tracking 555 apps which are the real movers and shakers in the Atlassian marketplace – why? In the chart below you can see that 15% of all apps make up 83% of all instances.
These 555 apps all have the distinction of having more than 500 instances.
Congratulations to the following vendors for their January results. You can also see how we’re categorizing them:
