The Apple identity management and app store systems feel like they were built for a different era. Because they were.
Comparing those experiences to Google, which is not a new company either, is eye-opening.
I operate in both ecosystems. I don’t know what Google is doing different or doing better in Identity and Access Management (IAM) compared to Apple in Fred Wilson’s estimation, but to me they both have their advantages and areas of improvement.
If we talk about App Store ecosystems, I’m not sure how Google’s Play Store competes with Apple’s. Maybe Mr. Wilson can provide some reference.
