I have some exciting news from Gartner about our EMS suite:
“Gartner recognized Microsoft as a Visionary in the 2015 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Management Suites, based on its ability to execute and completeness of vision. This Magic Quadrant rates vendors on their ability to help organizations integrate mobile devices into their security frameworks and systems and information technology life cycles. According to Gartner, Visionaries have unique capabilities in certain aspects of EMM. They meet the requirements of customers that place a high priority in certain critical EMM areas.
Microsoft is currently the only vendor to be featured in all three Gartner’s Magic Quadrants for Enterprise Mobility Management Suites, Identity and Access Management as a Service and Client Management Tools. We believe this validates Microsoft’s strategy to provide a combined suite that enables companies to manage computers, devices and applications with identity at the center”**
