Two weeks ago, in early February 2008, Gartner published another Magic Quadrant report for Business Intelligence Platforms. It is worth a mention that in this report Microsoft has been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant.
Microsoft has the highest score for ability to execute of all the competitors in the BI platform market (a year ago SAP had the highest score for ability to execute).
The main reason of this raiting is bounded with that Microsoft continuously expands BI functionality in its SQL Server 2005 (and in next edition – MS SQL Server 2008). And another reason is its major CPM-led innovation of 2007, MS Office PerfomancePoint Server 2007.
