Good Technology Mobility Index Report Highlights Enterprise Mobility Shift from Devices to Applications

Significant growth in Q2 across secure instant messaging, customer relationship management and business intelligence apps signals organizations mobilizing business processes and investing in more mature mobile strategies

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In its eighth quarterly report, Good Technology™, the leader in secure mobility, today announced key findings from the company's Q2 2014 Good™ Mobility Index Report. This quarter, in addition to continued double digit growth in the number of customer-built applications, there was significant growth in the number of activations in secure instant messaging (IM), customer relationship management (CRM) and business intelligence (BI) apps.

A recent Forrester report notes, "In the very near future, technology management professionals must provide access to a host of corporate applications such as CRM, BPM, and HR. This is already evident, as we see more spending shift to software for mobile applications and middleware as well as the necessary management solutions to provision and manage mobile applications. At the end of the day, we may talk about mobile devices, but in reality it's all about the apps."[1]

The data reported in this quarter's Mobility Index Report shows that organizations across Good's diverse customer base are adapting a 'going mobile' approach and leveraging the power of secure enterprise apps to mobilize business processes that have typically lived on the desktop. By deploying secure app-to-app workflows built on the Good Dynamics® Secure Mobility Platform, organizations use Good's connected container technology to help protect their sensitive corporate data within the apps they've chosen, and traveling between them.

"It's more apparent than ever that cross platform enterprise mobility is disrupting legacy desktop and mobile environments," said Christy Wyatt, Chairman and CEO of Good Technology. "We continue to see companies deploying a breadth of devices and a diverse set of applications to drive higher value for their business, across all vertical markets. Most exciting to us is the rapidly-growing segment of customers creating and deploying their own secure enterprise apps, across platforms, to fuel their business needs."

The Good Mobility Index Report was the first of its kind and has been established as the benchmark for transparency in understanding the operating system (OS) and application landscape across the enterprise. The OS breakdown of enterprise app activations shifted this quarter, with Android apps claiming 12 percent of total activations and taking four percentage points of share from iOS. In addition, from a device perspective, Android device activations grew this past quarter, increasing five percentage points to claim 32 percent of total activations.

Additional report findings include:

  • The total number of enterprise app activations continued to see significant double digit growth, increasing 20 percent quarter over quarter.
  • The gap seen in previous quarters in the number of tablet app activations versus smartphone activations significantly closed in Q2, coming in at 58 percent and 42 percent respectively.
  • Government and public sector recorded an increase of five percentage points in total iPad activations.

The quarterly Good Mobility Index Report provides data that identifies the adoption of enterprise applications and device activations from the previous calendar quarter, leveraging insights from the company's vast and diverse customer base using the Good Dynamics® Secure Mobility Platform. The report is an ongoing initiative to track activations across the breadth of mobile platforms and devices and leverages findings from the more than 5,000 Good customers worldwide to highlight global mobility trends and usage patterns.
