Gartner identifies Microsoft as a BI and analytics platform leader

Gartner has identified Microsoft as a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics platforms for the ninth consecutive year.

For the first time, Microsoft has been placed furthest in vision within the Leaders quadrant.

A statement from Microsoft’s Power BI team read: “The establishment of an updated modern BI and analytics platform definition for this year’s Magic Quadrant has significantly transformed the Leaders quadrant relative to its composition in previous years. In a market that is rapidly evolving with new innovation being introduced constantly, leaders in the BI market must demonstrate that they are focused not only on current execution but have a robust roadmap that will solidify its position as a future market leader, protecting the investment of today’s buyers.”

More than 90,000 organisations globally are now using Power BI, enabling users to create and share insights in real time.

Power BI is also continually being updated and enhanced by Microsoft’s community of engineers, partners and users, ensuring that the best product is available.
