This IDC Market Perspective discusses announcements made at the Microsoft Build 2019 conference. Microsoft Build 2019 was a showcase of a broad variety of technologies aimed at empowering modern application developers. Of particular interest was Microsoft's move to start tying its portfolio together into a more cohesive portfolio offering, where product integrations begin to tell a better-together story for Microsoft's larger portfolio.
"This approach is not only well suited to Microsoft's portfolio, it represents an approach that is of differentiating value for Microsoft versus other hyperscale cloud vendor providers that Microsoft competes with directly for full-stack cloud application deployments," said Al Gillen, GVP, Software Development and Open Source, IDC. "We believe this approach is not only empowering for clients but also creates true unique value to customers using a suite of Microsoft products."
