Is Microsoft Being Left Behind by Enterprise?

A recent report from Good Technology showed that in the first quarter of the year, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) iOS devices grabbed 75% of enterprise activations relative to only 25% for Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL  )  Android. While this is good news for Apple, the real story may be the complete lack of a presence by Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) . Mr. Softy has historically dominated the enterprise space, but the shift to mobile has not been kind.

In the video below, Fool.com contributor Doug Ehrman discusses the data from this report and what it could mean for Microsoft over the longer term if the company is not able to establish itself in mobile soon.

However, with the release of its own tablet, along with the widely anticipated Windows 8 operating system, the company is looking to make a splash in this booming market. In a new premium report on Microsoft, a Motley Fool analyst explains that while the opportunity is huge, so are the challenges.
