imageSharePoint powers content collaboration, intranets, and employee engagement across Microsoft 365—including Office, Microsoft Teams, OneDrive, and more—and is deeply integrated with the security and compliance of Microsoft 365, the world’s productivity cloud. Over 400,000 organizations now have SharePoint in Microsoft 365. With over 100 million monthly commercial active users, customers are turning to SharePoint for their mission critical content and processes, from financial contracts and global infrastructure projects, to building plans and employee benefits.

Today, we’re honored that for the third year in a row Gartner has recognized Microsoft as a Leader in the Content Services Platforms Magic Quadrant for 2019. Once again, Microsoft placed highest in Ability to Execute.

Gartner defines these essential characteristics for modern content services platforms:

  • Cloud scale—The ability to scale to meet the demands of the workforce. Provision of seamless connectivity to a broad ecosystem of suppliers, partners, and customers while delivering continuous innovation is essential.
  • Protection—The provision of deeply embedded, flexible, and intelligent information governance, security, and privacy controls. This is essential to operate in a world of ever-increasing threats and regulatory demands.
  • Fast time to value—The ability to deliver business value quickly, through the provision of prebuilt applications and citizen-developer-based tools, for example.
  • User-centricity—A consumerized user experience with embedded mobility and consistency across devices. A focus on the overall user experience is of paramount importance for driving adoption and realizing the expected benefits of this technology.
  • Intelligence—Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, including machine learning and deep neural networks, have enabled innovations for classification, productivity, and automation scenarios. Such capabilities should be embedded in all key areas of the platform—from security to collaboration—to align with the evolving expectations of the market.
