This report is the latest in a series of positive validation for Microsoft’s as an enterprise leader in Business Intelligence and for the success our customers are experiencing.
This validates Microsoft’s strong approach and strategy and further establishes Microsoft’s leadership position in the BI space. Microsoft is really distinguishing itself from the BI ‘mega-vendor pack’ and the progress with Gartner and the evolution over the last several years is significant and tangible.
Microsoft Business Intelligence delivers on the vision of “Pervasive Insight” as witnessed by the higher than average deployment of BI solutions recorded by customers.
By providing end user BI capabilities through familiar Microsoft Office experiences such as SharePoint and Excel, Microsoft solutions 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.
According the report "Gartner's view is that the market for BI platforms will remain one of the fastest growing software markets despite sluggish economic growth in most regions. Organisations continue to turn to BI as a vital tool for smarter, more agile and efficient business."
"Better insight and oversight can be the difference maker between surviving and thriving", Microsoft stated. "We keep listening to our customers and working hard to help them put better business intelligence in the hands of more decision makers at all levels of their organization.
It’s this focus on users and making BI accessible to everyone that we believe differentiates Microsoft BI. Enabling everyone to make faster, more relevant decisions is our mission. We appreciate the continued recognition of the impact of our software in these reports. Above all, we value our customer’s voice in helping shape and validate this approach".
