Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

For many organizations, cross-platform mobile development is becoming a strong option especially as the end-to-end experience of building mobile cross-platform applications becomes more enjoyable and efficient. Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile (KMM) is an SDK provided by JetBrains that leverages the multiplatform capabilities in Kotlin and includes tools and features designed to streamline the developer experience. With KMM you write code once for business logic and the app core in Kotlin and then share it with both Android and iOS applications. You write platform-specific code only when necessary, for example, to take advantage of native UI elements; and the specific code is kept in different views for each platform. We're moving KMM to Trial as it is evolving rapidly and we're seeing a few organizations use this as their default.
