Report: Enterprise app activations growing rapidly

Report: Good Mobility Index Report for Q4 2013,  part of the Good Technology Mobility Index, an ongoing initiative to track and analyze the impact of mobile apps and platforms.

Key Points: The report found a 54 percent growth quarter over quarter in activations of enterprise applications, which are designed to take advantage of the mobile devices employees are already carrying. The rate is a jump from the 43 percent growth rate from second quarter to third quarter of 2013.

Custom app development continued to grow rapidly at 55 percent, an increase from 52 percent in last quarter’s report. Although document editing remains the dominant choice of enterprise applications, more advanced mobile applications are continuing to close the gap, including business intelligence, secure browser and social business.

The report also found that organizations are continuing to move away from BlackBerry and are further embracing the iOS platform. Fifty-four percent of all device activations last quarter came from iOS smartphones. Android activations saw a one percent decrease to 26 percent.

Financial services dominated all other industries in net activations, accounting for 39.3 percent. Business and professional services were second on the list at 19.6 percent, while the government and public sector accounted for 6.5 percent. 

Bottom Line: “With a 54 percent growth rate quarter over quarter, it’s becoming more and more apparent that organizations are leveraging mobile apps to make employees more collaborative, productive and engaged.”
