Gartner has recognized Microsoft as a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Data Management Solutions for Analytics (DMSA). Gartner defines the DMSA as a system for storing, accessing, processing and delivering data intended for one of the primary use cases that support analytics. These use cases include supporting ongoing traditional, operational, logical and context-independent data warehousing.
