Gartner: Microsoft a leader in BI and analytics platforms

Feb 4, 2016   |   Thomas Kohnstamm

Industry analysts are taking note of Microsoft’s progress in business intelligence (BI) and analytics platforms.

While Gartner has positioned Microsoft in its “Leaders Quadrant” for nine consecutive years, the 2016 report recognizes the company for its best ever placement for “Completeness of Vision.”

This acknowledgment is the result of new advances to Microsoft’s Power BI platform. Now anyone can develop rich and compelling stories based on data visualization. And they can easily publish those reports straight to the Web. As Power BI is continually upgraded by Microsoft’s community of engineers, partners and users, the tools get better every day.
