This IDC Market Perspective discusses Microsoft's second Ignite conference in six months, which was held March 2-4, 2021. As would be expected, Microsoft used the event to introduce a wide variety of new technologies as well as technology previews for forthcoming products.
"Microsoft's business has experienced little or no negative impact from the difficult economic conditions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, and in response to those favorable market conditions, the company continues to invest heavily in bringing new technologies and products to market during the pandemic," said Al Gillen, GVP, Software Development and Open Source, IDC. "The company's recent Ignite 2021 event continued that trend, with a robust set of products and services announced or released."
