iOS Leads In Enterprise App Activations Over Android in Q2 2014
Apple’s iOS has the lead over Android in the enterprise market in terms of net activations, according to Good Technology’s Q2 2014 Mobility Index Report.
While Android’s 5% point increase from Q1 to Q2 brought 32% total device activations, iOS stayed above the ranking despite a 5% decrease and coming in with 67% total device activations this quarter. Windows Phone consistently generated only 1% of activations in five previous quarters. [See Figure 1]
As seen in Figure 2 below, iOS smartphone activations remained at 51% quarter-over-quarter, but still leaving Android smartphone activations behind regardless of their 30% showing this quarter. Net activations via iOS tablets only had a slight decrease, with 16% in the second quarter.
From this study, Good Technology not only revealed the prominence of such platforms and devices, but also revealed how enterprises integrate technological advancements into their workflow for better access to business. Christy Wyatt, Chairman and CEO of Good Technology, stated in their press release:
We continue to see companies deploying a breadth of devices and a diverse set of applications to drive higher value for their business, across all vertical markets. Most exciting to us is the rapidly-growing segment of customers creating and deploying their own secure enterprise apps, across platforms, to fuel their business needs.
Other findings highlighted in the report were:
- The number of enterprise app activations continued to increase with a 20% quarter-over-quarter raise. Android apps claimed 12% total activations taking a 4% share from iOS.
- Secure instant messaging led smartphone apps after significant growth this quarter.
- Custom app activations continued its streak of double digit growth quarter-over-quarter with a 25% increase in Q2.
- Business intelligence restores its position as the up and coming app after a drop last quarter, with 200% growth in total activations from Q1 to Q2.
- Customer relationship management (CRM) recorded an increase of 7 total activations quarter-over-quarter.
Additionally, Good Technology did not include RIM device activations due to the fact that they do not use other apps for corporate email access aside from the Blackberry Enterprise Server. The data was obtained from Good Technology’s 5,000 customers worldwide.
