Microsoft in MQs – June is Bustin’ Out

by Merv Adrian  |  June 18, 2015  |  2 Comments

Following December 2014’s Microsoft’s Product Positions – Positive Progress, and March’s Microsoft in MQs – March On,  this post updates my quarterly map of the several dozen Gartner Magic Quadrants that feature Microsoft offerings. As Microsoft nears the end of its fiscal year (and undergoes management shifts I’ll discuss in a future post) their MQ progress continues through Q2.

Note that the reports shown in bold have been refreshed in the past 9 months; the ones in italics are appearing for the first time in this version of the chart. There are several of the latter; we added Multichannel Campaign Management as Niche, IT Project and Portfolio Management as Challenger, E-Discovery, Identity & Access Management as a Service, Enterprise Mobility Management Suites and Unified Communications for Midsize Enterprises North America as Visionary. CRM Customer Engagement Center was promoted to Leader.

Progress continues to be visible, and I’ll continue to track it in Satya Nadella’s second year.

As always, I welcome your comments.
