iOS 7 isn't impressing the enterprise market, may give an opportunity to Windows Phone
posted by Michael H. / Nov 25, 2013, 9:42 PM
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.

People don’t need to be a hater to like another product, I have an iphone 4s and a Note 3 there are many things the note does much better than my iPhone. Microsoft exchange on the iPhone is not great. Is Microsoft exchange better a windows phone, I bet it is.

Microsoft, WP is about to become the new BB for business users. And I seriously mean that in a good way.

I'm waiting for windows to just mature a bit. There is definite potential.

As long as they dedicate a lot of time and resources on WP, there is potential, yes. I think Microsoft should shift a lot of their focus from Windows 8 to Windows Phone. After all, there's hardly any competition against Windows 8, while there's a lot of competition against WP.

Oh c'mon dude. Best get over ignorance. iOS' worldwide market share of 14% is really close to WP's 4%. Lumia sales have skyrocketed, are are already up 200% while WP's market share is up 156% from last year. Comparatively speaking, iOS's market share has been stagnant and hasn't made any significant increase. It's literally flat. Analysts predict an even higher upward trend for 2014. That certainly translates to WP gaining market share at the expense of iOS.

Windows Phone is probably the perfect balance between work, and play, especially as more popular apps like Innote, Papyrus, Vine, and Instagram become available.. I glad I stuck with WP from the beginning, and I haven't been let down yet by it.. That says a lot.

Lol that's not surprising at all. iOS 7 was for the teenage crowd. I really want to see WP8 grow.

It will grow, but hopefully in the right direction. MS has a way to messing over that which is good for no absolute reason whatsoever. Hopefully Ballmer leaving changes their "axe meet (own) foot" ways.

This could just be speculation from an analyst cuz in reality this latest upgrade was just as focused on enterprise as it was on the consumers. It offers deeper integration with iOS services, Apple's iBeacon support (shopkick Macy's initiative), scanning to acquire Passbook passes. We can be negative all we want and buy our way into a 'happy ending' it's not happening

I liked the article until it said 6% in five years. Growth in the consumer market is by getting one person at a time or on occasion one family at a time to buy a phone. A slow process. Corporations buy thousands or hundreds of thousands at a time. It seems to me if the windows phone gains traction in business then marketshare should jump faster. I do believe the windows phone has what it takes to move into business successfully. They have already moved into a few fortune 500 companies.
