NEWS: Microsoft a leader in Gartner Business Intelligence Magic Quadrant

imageMicrosoft was recognized by Gartner as a Leader in Business Intelligence based on “Ability to Execute” and “Completion of Vision”. 

Because of restrictions Gartner places on what people are permitted to say about their research, I won’t comment other than to say, just click on the link for the Magic Quadrant and see for yourself (at no charge for the research)where Microsoft is.

Taken from the Microsoft Data Platform blog:

We are pleased to see Microsoft acknowledged by Gartner as a Leader in the Business Intelligence Platforms Magic Quadrant. [1]

I am happy to see this type of affirmation in our approach and strength of our technologies from Gartner. The high level of satisfaction of our current Microsoft Business Intelligence customers highlighted is especially gratifying. We believe our placement in this report reflects, in part, the level of positive customer feedback Microsoft has received in the customer survey portion of the evaluations. Focus on familiar, intuitive user experiences delivered via high quality, industry-leading products that businesses already know and use today is key to making BI truly pervasive.

Microsoft Business Intelligence delivers on the vision of “Pervasive Insight” as witnessed by the higher than average deployment of BI solutions recorded by our customers. By providing end user BI capabilities through familiar Microsoft Office experiences such as SharePoint and Excel, we empower an entirely new segment of business users to build and consume rich BI solutions as part of their everyday work. Delivering the server-side capabilities to enable self-service BI via SharePoint Server and SQL Server gives IT a common, quality data foundation, feature-rich collaborative decision making environment, and empowers IT oversight and insight into what solutions are being built and who is using them.
