If Apple have to chose between the consumer and the professional, it repeatedly chose the consumer. Recently this had been made clear with the new Final Cut Pro X, a video editing and production app. Apple have added ease-of-use features and taken away tools professionals need.
“Doesn’t Apple care about the high-end professional market?”
In a word, no. Not really. Not enough to focus on it as a primary business.
So why are I as ERP app developer so interested in this. Well, this consumer attitude, “for the rest of us”, is clearly something that have driven my work in financials and ERP. And I’ve to take many decisions daily about features, and this good to hold up as a daily and golden rule: “care about the consumer, not the professional!”
