Report: Android gaining on iOS in enterprise

The latest Mobility Index Report from Good Technology reveals trends in how businesses are adopting and deploying mobile devices and apps.

Most businesses have embraced mobile technologies, but many are still on the low end of the mobile maturity curve. Good Technology has published its second-quarter Mobility Index Report, and it reveals some interesting trends regarding the mobile platforms and apps businesses are deploying.

Good Technology aggregated data from customers around the world and monitored app and device activations to determine overall trends, as well as which platforms and apps are most popular among Good customers.

According to the report, iOS accounted for 88 percent of app activations. As impressive as that is, it represents a 4 per cent drop from the previous quarter. That drop in iOS apps was swallowed up by Android, which claimed 12 per cent of the enterprise app activations this quarter.

Similarly, iOS device activations make up a healthy 67 per cent of the total, but that's a five percent drop from the previous quarter. It shouldn't come as a surprise that Android increased by five percent, taking 32 per cent of the mobile device activations for the quarter.

The report also looked at what types of mobile apps are popular in businesses and found the most widely-used category is document editing--apps like Office Mobile for iPhone or Word for iPad. Secure instant messaging, which enables users to communicate effectively with each other in real-time from their mobile devices, came in second.

CRM (Customer Relationship Management) app activations jumped by a factor of seven over the previous quarter, driven by the launch of Good for Salesforce at the tail-end of Q2. Good Technology suggests that CRM could be one of the leading app types in future reports.

The Mobility Index Report is a little myopic because the data is gleaned solely from Good Technology customers. However, it is fair to assume they are representative of businesses at large and the report provides a reasonable view of overall trends in mobile apps and devices for businesses.
