The 2015 list of Austin-area software development firms from the Austin Business Journal features all kinds of software companies from those offering large consumer-based products, such as Microsoft, to boutique, custom developers. For a second year in a row, Mutual Mobile has been named the leading custom software development firm in Austin.
All firms offer some customization and support after the sale. The biggest difference between the types of developers is who owns the intellectual property. For the ABJ list, firms were grouped according based on development of their own proprietary products, retention of intellectual property rights, and contracts with each client individually to develop a custom product in which the software then becomes the client’s IP.
