Good Technology™, the leader in secure mobility solutions, today announced key findings from the Good™ Mobility Index Report for Q2 and Q3 2013. For the first time, the report includes data on the adoption of enterprise applications, in addition to device activations, leveraging insights from the company’s vast and diverse customer base using the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform.

The company reported that total device activations for the quarter rose nearly 60 per cent from the same time last year, indicating that the rise of mobility continues to grow at a staggering pace and enterprises are choosing Good to protect their data, not just devices. The company also announced 1000 custom applications - those developed internally by an enterprise to streamline business process - have been built and securely deployed by customers on Good Dynamics®.

This milestone closely aligns with Good’s most recent activation data, which reveals the most rapid growth in enterprise apps is being driven by the adoption of custom enterprise applications, at an astounding rate of 52 per cent quarter over quarter. In total, Good found that the number of mobile app activations rose 42 per cent quarter over quarter, pointing to the growth of enterprise apps developed by ISVs and enterprises alike.

From a device standpoint, iOS continues to lead in device activations, but saw a slight wobble in numbers, dropping 3 per cent quarter over quarter, to 72 per cent in Q3. Android™ saw an increase in activations, 30 per cent and 27 per cent of total activations respectively, in Q2 and Q3.

“As we continue to see tremendous adoption of secure enterprise mobility across our customer base, platform diversity remains a key theme,” said Christy Wyatt, CEO and President, Good Technology. “It’s promising to see our extensive base of Good customers embracing the transformative opportunity that comes with harnessing the power of mobile apps, not just mobile devices.”

The Mobility Index Report also indicated that iOS dominated as the platform for enterprise application development, with 98 per cent and 95 per cent of total app activations in Q2 and Q3 respectively. However, Android enterprise application development is experiencing more significant growth, as the number of Android app activations nearly tripled quarter over quarter.

Additional report findings include:
• Tablets are the most popular device for mobile app usage, with 81 per cent of applications activated in Q3 on this form factor.
• Document editing emerges as the largest single commercial application category, capturing 56 per cent of all activations.
• Android smartphones have seen the greatest increase in total activations at 27 per cent in Q3, up from 21 per cent in Q1 2013.
• The Manufacturing industry recorded tremendous growth quarter over quarter with 32 per cent increase in share of iPad activations.

An ongoing initiative to track activations across the breadth of mobile platforms and devices, the report leverages findings from the more than 5,000 Good customers worldwide to highlight global mobility trends and usage patterns. The full report is available to view in PDF.
