As of July 13, Microsoft is featured in 41 current Gartner Magic Quadrants. 16 have been updated this year; they are shown in bold in the figure. One has been added: Disaster Recovery as a Service enters in the Leaders quadrant. Two improved their positions: Mobile Application Development Platforms moved from Challenger to Leader, and Identity and Access Management as a Service from Visionary to Leader.
In quarterly updates throughout the year, this series of posts will track changed positions, updated MQs and new MQs as they appear. Gartner clients can read about these offerings in depth in the reports and in the associated Critical Capabilities documents. The breadth of offerings represented here continues to make the case that Microsoft’s software portfolio is broad, rich, and often leading in its space.
