MMW was privy to a sneak peek at a new report from Good Technology that highlights the rise of the enterprise app.
The Q4 2013 Mobility Index reveals what the company calls a “groundbreaking quarter” for enterprise app activations as businesses look to make employees more “collaborative, productive and engaged.”
Overall, the data reveals 54 percent growth in total enterprise application activations quarter over quarter, up from a 43 percent growth rate from Q2 to Q3 of last year.
Additionally, the findings show that businesses with a more established mobile approach are now focused on deploying the types of apps that can increase employee productivity and encourage collaboration, which are ultimately designed to impact business performance.
Custom enterprise app development continued to grow at an astounding 55 percent quarter over quarter, with the greatest amount of growth seen in the business intelligence, secure browser and social business app categories.
“Enterprise mobile app development is on the rise,” explains Maribel Lopez, founder of Lopez Research LLC. “Almost two-thirds of the companies surveyed in the Q4 2013 Lopez Research benchmark plan to mobile-enable at least 5 or more applications in 2014.”
