Microsoft enters 2017 with 45 offerings in Magic Quadrants

24 Jan 17

In Q1 2017, as always, we reset this chart – no bold or italic for new entries. As of January 20, no new MQs had yet been published in 2017 featuring Microsoft, so the picture below lays out a new picture for the year ahead.

An addition or two late last year raise the total to 45 included products.

It’s been my privilege to watch Microsoft as Gartner’s Vendor Lead for 3 years, and I end the assignment with the new year. This will be my last post in this series; I hope you have found it as useful as I found it instructive to create.

Microsoft’s steady progress continues unabated into new categories and towards continuing improvement in its offerings.
