Microsoft Dynamics CRM relies on the capabilities of the Microsoft Application Platform—Windows Server, IIS, SQL and .NET. Given this, I wanted to draw your attention to recent research from Gartner Research (www.gartner.com). The report – released September 24, 2009 – delivers valuable information regarding the current landscape of the Enterprise Application Server market, as defined by Gartner. The report is under the title of: “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application Servers”
We believe Gartner’s findings are further proof that Microsoft is delivering on its commitment of enabling customers to build, deploy, scale and support applications within today’s quickly‐changing market place. Over the coming years, you can expect Microsoft to extend these capabilities and further deliver on its promise to meet the growing needs of your business.
I hope you find this information helpful. The Gartner report is available upon request from Microsoft. You can find Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application Servers at: http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/itanalyst/default.mspx.
