Back in the day, BlackBerry would be considering the darling of enterprise platforms when it came to mobile devices. Nowadays, not so much, although there are still plenty of companies out there who remain fiercely loyal to the Canadian company. That being said, a recent report from enterprise mobile services vendor, Good Technology, it looks like iOS is dominating the enterprise app sector.
According to their recent report for Q1 2014, it seems that iOS apps for the enterprise currently dominates 93% of the market, which we have to say is pretty impressive. They also mentioned about custom enterprise apps which grew by 77% quarter over quarter, which is a jump from the 55% growth that Good Technology reported back in Q4 2013.
They add, “Other app categories that saw notable growth of over 100 percent quarter over quarter include mobile printing, notes and mobile unified communications, highlighting the growing trend of organizations moving beyond tasks like document editing and management and supplementing their mobile app strategies with more advanced, sophisticated apps.”
Their report also found that based on their survey of 5,000 companies who used Good Technology’s services, Apple’s iPad tablet accounted for a whopping 92% of tablet activations. This helped to boost iOS’ share of all mobile devices to 72%. This is followed by Android at 27%, followed by Windows Phone who comprised of the remainder 1%.
Of course it should be noted that these results are based on devices activated on Good Technology and have used their services, so it might not necessarily paint a global scenario, but if anything it does hint at iOS’ dominance in the enterprise sector.
