First it was BlackBerry. Now it appears that Android will be the next victim of Apple’s surge in the enterprise community.
According to a new report from Good Technology, a provider of secure and managed enterprise mobility tools, Q1 findings show that Apple’s iPhone 4S is a huge hit with businesses of all sizes.
Apple’s newest-generation iPhone claimed the number one device spot overall, with 37 percent of all activations for the first quarter. Good Technology says that amounts to four times that of any other device.
The iPad 2 claimed the second spot overall, with 17.7 percent of activations for the quarter.
With less than one month on the market, the new iPad, released in March 2012, took the fourth spot with 4.3 percent of all activations for the quarter, and an impressive 12.1 percent of activations in March alone.
As the leader in enabling BYOD, Good Technology is seeing rapid growth in both the quantity and size of its customers’ deployments. The number of Good customers deploying iOS and/or Android devices grew by more than 50 percent over the past 12 months, while the average Good customer deployment size more than doubled over the same period.
“BYOD smartphones and tablets combined with proactive, company-owned iPad deployments are driving rapid growth both the size and number of new deployments amongst our customers,” said John Herrema, Good Technology’s SVP of Corporate Strategy. “This includes significant growth in the number of Good users who have both a smartphone and a tablet, with the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 as the most frequently occurring combination.”
