Apple Dominates Android In The Enterprise In Q1 2012

The latest poll results form Good Technology have confirmed that Apple is dominating the enterprise marketplace with their iOS devices, and more particularly with its iPad. The findings have the new iPad already owning 12.1 percent of the market, with the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 both over the 15 percent mark, and the iPhone 4S well over 35 percent.

From Network World:

[quote]iOS devices accounted for around 80% of new activations on corporate networks in the first quarter of 2012, while Android-based devices accounted for just 20%. No other mobile platform, such as Windows Mobile, registered enough activations on the quarter to crack Good’s study, which tracked mobile device activations across thousands of companies that registered at least five activated mobile devices.[/quote]

Of the Top 10 devices in Q1 2012, Apple dominates six spots. The list, arranged by highest percentage point, is as follows:

  1. iPhone 4S
  2. iPad 2
  3. iPhone 4
  4. iPad 3
  5. iPad
  6. iPhone 3GS
  7. Motorola Droid
  8. Samsung Galaxy S II
  9. Google Nexus
  10. Sprint EVO 4G

If you’re wondering who Good Technology is and what makes them capable of commenting on device adoption in the enterprise, the company focuses on giving enterprise and governement the tools they need to protect their mobile employees and users’ sensitive data, as well as collaborate wirelessly in a safe environment. Many large corporations, including Union Bank, Patagnoia, and Active Interest use the company to mange their mobile workforce’s security.
