iPhone Enterprise Share: 72 Percent

Emil Protalinski, writing for VentureBeat:

Entering into 2015, Apple continues to rule the mobile enterprise space. iOS lost just 1 percentage point over the past quarter, dipping to 72 percent of global device activations in Q1 2015. Android device activations, meanwhile, gained the same amount to hit 26 percent of total activations last quarter.

The latest findings come from Good Technology’s Mobility Index Report, although because BlackBerry devices use BlackBerry Enterprise Server for corporate email access, Good Technology does not have insight into the Canadian company’s handset activations. Interestingly, the Windows desktop operating system appeared for the first time in the report this past quarter, registering 1 percent of activations.

Who would have predicted this sort of success for the iPhone in the corporate enterprise market back in 2007? Not me, that’s for sure.
