Three years in a row – Microsoft is a leader in the ODBMS Magic Quadrant

We’re happy to report that Gartner has positioned Microsoft in the Leaders Quadrant in the 2017 Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems again this year. This is the third year that Microsoft has been positioned farthest in completeness of vision and ability to execute in the operational database management systems market.

At Microsoft, we’re dedicated to helping both enterprises and individuals realize their full potential. Our industry position in Operational DBMS is due to the unequaled capabilities of SQL Server.

The release of SQL Server 2017 brings the power of SQL Server to Windows, Linux, and Docker containers for the first time ever. Developers are able to build intelligent applications using preferred languages and environments, while enjoying in-memory performance across workloads, mission-critical high availability, and in-database advanced analytics. You can develop once and deploy anywhere in a consistent experience across your datacenter and public cloud.

SQL Server proves itself, year over year, to be the least vulnerable DBMS in the industry. Built for security from the ground up, SQL Server offers customers a layered protection approach that incorporates encryption, authentication, and monitoring and auditing at the disk, database, and application levels. Innovative security technologies like Always Encrypted, for encryption
