iPad in the Enterprise: Good Technology Sees iPad Activations Shoot Up in Last Quarter

Share This:



Enterprise mobile services vendor Good Technology reported a 64 percent increase in the iPad’s share of all device activations over the past quarter among its more than 2,000 companies deploying mobile devices. .

Good provides push messaging, device management and security products for corporate mobile users, serving as an alternative to RIM’s BlackBerry Enterprise Server. As such, Good supports mobile platforms outside of RIM’s own, including Microsoft’s Windows Mobile, Symbian, and adding relatively new support for iPhone and Android in December of 2009.

After a full year of supporting its Good for Enterprise solution on both the iOS and Android platforms, Good now reports that iOS devices represent more than 65 percent of all new device activations in the winter quarter of 2010, up from 56 percent last quarter. iPad itself has grown from 14 to 22 percent of all device activations over the same period.

That’s from a report this week at Apple Insider (text highlights are mine) that gives more evidence of how much momentum the iPad seems to have in the enterprise space. Good Technology are a major player in this area, so there numbers should be quite a good indicator.

And that 22% (of all device activations) is a pretty striking number for a device that hasn’t yet been available for even a year.
