Technology For Android Takes Center Stage As The Internet’s Most Used Operating System

Technology / Research from web analytics company Statcounter found Android technology now accounts for a larger share of internet usage than Windows for the first time. During March 2017, Android users represented 37.93% of activity on Statcounter’s network versus 37.91% for the Microsoft operating system. It’s a small gap for sure, and it refers to usage not necessary users, but it marks a notable tipping point that has been inevitable for the past couple of years.

Statcounter, which bases its findings on 2.5 million websites that it claims generate over 15 billion monthly page views, tracked the gradual converge of usage for the two operating systems over time. The chart highlights Microsoft’s failure to challenge with its ill-fated Windows Phone platform. For Apple, the switch happened some time ago. During March 2017, Apple’s mobile users (iOS) were close to three times more active on the internet than users of its desktop machines (OSX).

The wider Android-Windows trend has been evident for some time. Windows dominated, and continues to dominate, the desktop landscape, but worldwide PC sales have declined for the past five years to reach the same levels as 2008. In contrast, sales of smartphones continue to grow, and Android is the operating system for the lion’s share of internet users worldwide. Growth is highest in emerging markets like India. There, Apple has increased its sales but remains a niche player with Android accounting for upwards of 90% of smartphones.

While the balance between iOS and Android is more level in Western markets like the U.S., the influx of new internet users from regions like Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America has tipped the scales in favor of Android. Indeed, a Statcounter report issued last week showed that mobile accounts for the vast majority of internet usage in countries like India (79%), Indonesia (72%) and China (57%) while desktop remains king in markets such as the U.S. (37 percent), UK (35 percent) and Germany (30%).

Those numbers have seen some shift in global revenue for developers, with China overtaking the U.S. as the most lucrative market for iOS apps worldwide, but Android continues to lag despite a larger base of users. A recent App Annie report found that iOS accounted for just over 25 billion of the 90 billion app downloads made in 2016, with Android taking the remainder. Yet iOS apps pulled in the majority of the $35 billion paid out to publishers across the iOS and Android app stores. That might change soon, though. Thanks again to its vast dominance in the emerging world, App Annie is predicting that 2017 could be the year that Android app earnings overtake iOS for the first time. That would be another important milestone.

There’s no secret that mobile technology is here to stay and in many cases it is completely changing the landscape of the average workplace.  There truly is “an app for that”.  Enterprise mobility is a word used for the increasing trend of businesses having more employees working out of the office while using mobile devices to perform work-related tasks.

Mobile technology especially when discussing the overall tech sector, has become a key strategy and business grower to both reduce costs and improve efficiency to enhance the general customer experience.  This also has a big hand in boosting competitiveness.

Colin Hamill of BT Business Northern Ireland says that mobile tech brings an unrivaled sense of opportunity but a complete acceptance of it doesn’t come without challenges.

“Many organizations may be missing out on the amazing potential mobility has to offer. Making the change to a more agile and mobile workforce can be challenging…However, organizations can adopt a mobility first strategy to reduce the cost of delivering services, improve the customer experience and to enable faster and better decision making within their business….”Many organizations simply don’t have the infrastructure, resources and skills required to manage the diverse range of mobile devices, operating systems and applications needed to make Enterprise Mobility a reality. Companies can also struggle with cost, governance and security.

“Mobile technology is being rolled out for a number of different roles including managers,response maintenance staff and grant staff.”

-Sean Nolan Head of IT Services, Northern Ireland Housing Executive

The growth of the adoption of enterprise mobility within the business world has created opportunities for not only increasing productivity but also developing new innovative ways of delivering services.  This has been something that the public realm has taken notice of. Over the coming weeks you will see many tech stocks  and companies utilizing the mobile landscape to turn profit.
