iOS 7 isn't impressing the enterprise market, may give an opportunity to Windows Phone
Apple didn't just throw a coat of paint on iOS 7 and call it an update, it also added a number of features to the new system and many of them were aimed squarely at the enterprise market. Unfortunately, according to ABI Research, the new enterprise features are not really impressing anyone and while the disappointment may not cause Apple to lose users, it does leave the door open for others like Windows Phone.

Apple's new system includes additions for enterprise like per app VPN, better managed distribution, advanced VPP control, single sign-on options, and more. But, according to ABI Research senior analyst Jason McNicol:


So, while Apple is expected to hold its current 18% market penetration in enterprise, it isn't expected to grow. This leaves an opportunity for a company like Microsoft that has a solid reputation in the enterprise world. ABI believes that Microsoft could see Windows Phone grow its market share in enterprise to 6% in the next 5 years.
