Why Read This Report

Microsoft technologies span a wide range of products and services, including enterprise applications such as Dynamics AX and Dynamics CRM; desktop and collaboration applications such as Office, Exchange, and SharePoint; platform-as-a-service offering Azure; BI offerings such as SQL BI and mobile solutions; and technology services such as .NET, BizTalk, and Windows migrations. Microsoft solutions are the core platform for information workers and the foundation for the connected enterprise in organizations across all industry segments and geographies. This vast array of solutions makes navigating the complex and fragmented Microsoft ecosystem extremely challenging when looking for services providers to help with consulting, implementation, and support. This report provides an overview of the Microsoft services provider ecosystem and key elements of that marketplace. This report will also highlight a select group of large global providers and their capabilities in Microsoft services.
