Gartner’s Magic Quadrant analysis series has long been regarded as a decision-makers’ touchstone for determining the quality of both strategy and delivery for market players. Across organisations, Business Intelligence (BI) is must tool for uncovering crucial insights amidst unstructured data and to provide agility in processes. Thanks to the regular development and customer-centric approach to ship cycles for Power BI, Microsoft has added hundreds of new features since it was made available in 2015. Microsoft has also announced that their second annual Microsoft Data Insights Summit will be held this year in Seattle during the month of June.
The company’s placement in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant can be accredited to its innovation and “significant growth in both the vision axis and execution axis since the 2016 report.” Microsoft, encouraged by the progress made as a community, notes that Power BI is now available to more people than ever before.
