Three years in a Row – Microsoft is a Leader in the ODBMS Magic Quadrant





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.

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 data center 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 at rest and in motion, help transform global operations for the better.

Perhaps most noteworthy for organizations living in the real world of cost-benefit analyses, SQL Server 2017 remains one of the most cost-competitive DBMS offerings in the enterprise space. In fact, you can get all the robust business capabilities in SQL Server 2017 built-in to a single product SKU, without expensive add-ons — for one great low total cost of ownership.
