This IDC Market Perspective summarizes IDC's key observations from the Microsoft Ignite event held the week of November 4, 2019, in Orlando.
"Microsoft is clearly picking up speed in converting its technology investments into consumable solutions that empower its customers to make a digital transformation," said Al Gillen, Group VP, Software Development and Open Source, IDC. "Competitors have always needed to be wary of a motivated Microsoft, and what we are seeing today is a Microsoft that has not only found its footing in the competitive cloud market but is starting to substantially raise the bar for its most direct competitors. This is not just about having not just on the cloud itself, but the large suite of solutions that are made possible by its cloud, leveraging every tool in Microsoft's large toolbox."
