IPad is standard
Interesting analysis. As a matter of fact, iPad is the standard in enterprises. As a management consultant, I almost never saw an enterprise providing their employees other devices than iPad. I do use an ipad with my collaborators as well; the thing is that the fact that iPad interface isn't as customizable as android's one ease the collaborative and collective use of ipads as work tools. Then, some of the best business apps are exclusive to iPad, such as Beesy, Goodreader or Office. Adding to this the fact that ipad remains more powerful than its competitor and that Apple updated its mobile device management tools for enterprise, I think iPad is in very good position into the enterprise market.

Re: What about education?
Susan, that's a marvelous question. Yes, education is a huge market for Apple, and for iPads in particular. Here's my guess: The education segment's no-show in the chart probably says more about Good's clientele than about the number of iPads used in schools. Good offers an enterprise-focused set of tools. That doesn't make them inappropriate for schools, but I imagine there are other MDM options out there that might be better suited to a school's needs.

Re: Surprised
Apple was first to market, and part of the iPad's early enterprise momentum is because of its cachet.

Surprised
Really surprised that iPads have caught on so much in the business sector, considering Apple's penchant for releasing products the are regularly overpriced for the hardware on offer and tend to be more style focused than anything.

What?! Re: Office would be useful on the iPad.
Chas, 

"Office would be useful on the iPad."

What a disturbing idea! Why would someone would like their iPad to start crashing on a daily basis?! The iPad doesn't need Office.

What about education?
Michael, 

iPads have consistently been adopted by education for years. The schools in Europe that have adpted tablets for all their students, teachers, and administration have chosen iPads.

Yet, I don't see education included in the chart. Would it be part of the "other" 7.6%?

Re: What does marketshare really mean?
Yes. That's true. I mentioned usage as a reason why I don't believe the marketshare numbers we see.

Re: What does marketshare really mean?
Internet usage stats may be useful here:

"Out of all tablet internet usage in the US, Apple generates 80.3% followed by Amazon with the Kindle (7.4%) and Samsung (4.2%)."

Regardless of how many tablets are being sold, people are using iPads more than any other tablet.
