It turns out that SharePoint is very sociable, at least according to Gartner. They recently published their Magic Quadrant on social software and SharePoint is up there as market leader in this space. Microsoft is ranked #1 on Ability to Execute and overtook several competitors (including IBM) to become #2 on Completeness of Vision. Don’t worry, we are working hard to grab the top spot on this scale as well.
According to this report, Microsoft is the overall visual leader for social software.
Another interesting titbit from the report is the disappearance of Google. Gartner no longer consider Google to be a player in this space due to the demise of Wave and Gartner’s lack of confidence in Google’s commitment to the enterprise space. That’s certainly something to think about.
