Microsoft BI ranks highest in ability to execute by Gartner

Microsoft once again is ranked the highest in its ability to execute by Gartner in its magic quadrant for Business Intelligence.  The report is pretty long and boring, but if I were distill it down to a few salient points, I would choose the following:

  1. Companies see a dramatic improvement in BI capabilities going from SQL Server 2008 R2 to SQL Server 2012
  2. Microsoft got a node for some of the upcoming stuff including Explorer, GeoFlow and PolyBase
  3. Gartner mentioned “shortening product update cycles” for Microsoft SQL, Office and Sharepoint
  4. “it is widely deployed in large enterprises as a standard with among the highest data volumes and user counts”
  5. Microsoft is dinged on basically two fronts, mobility and CPM.
