Leading in the Gartner Content Services Platforms Magic Quadrant

Once again, Microsoft placed highest in Ability to Execute and is placed higher on both Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute than any other company in the Leaders’ quadrant.

The Gartner team has projected some emerging trends in the content services arena which are fueling innovation in SharePoint Portal across Microsoft 365.

“The inclusion of tightly integrated intelligent services starting to provide real differentiation between products in the market. This has surfaced in a number of ways; in classification (content intelligence), in productivity (productivity intelligence) and in content protection (security intelligence).”

Powering innovative experiences across Microsoft 365

Microsoft are investing more than ever to bring their customers innovative content collaboration and protection capabilities—increasingly powered by Microsoft AI.

  • SharePoint powers content collaboration across Microsoft 365. It underpins the document sharing scenarios in OneDrive with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and 320 other file types. It drives new Microsoft Lists experiences. It enables end-users to create beautiful pages and portals with video from Microsoft Stream and conversations from Yammer to engage employees as Arla Foods has done for their 20,000 employees. It powers Teams Meeting Recordings and soon, stream videos. Finally, SharePoint enables millions of developers to create solutions with their latest SharePoint Framework (“SPFx”) and Power Platform. All of this is available in both standalone SharePoint sites and hosted in Microsoft Teams. Customers like Gap Inc. use SharePoint and OneDrive to power a unified digital workplace with cloud-based file sharing.


  • SharePoint delivers unparalleled solutions for document management and content protection. User experience offers easy and powerful tools to manage file sharing, versions, templates, copy or move, automation, alerts, and labeling. With more than 100 global datacenters and Microsoft’s global network edge—along with compliance standards, including ISO 27001, FISMA, and EU Model Clauses, the newly announced ability to comply with SEC 17a4, and security tools like information governance for automated retention and Records Management, data loss protection (DLP), eDiscovery, and Microsoft Information Protection-based encryption—they offer customers trusted compliance and security. Microsoft is proud to be able to work with partners like VersaFile to help TransAlta consolidate legacy critical content platforms into Microsoft 365.
  • The latest investment is bringing content intelligence to customers with Microsoft Search, SharePoint Syntex and Project Cortex Topics. SharePoint is a core part of Microsoft Search, using Graph-based content connectors to index data in over 130 remote locations, such as file shares, SQL, or ServiceNow. Microsoft just released SharePoint Syntex, which uses advanced AI and machine teaching to amplify human expertise, automate content processing, and transform content into knowledge. They ’ve also modernized their taxonomy services (managed metadata) with synonyms, machine translation, import functionality, analytics, and five times our previous scale.

Project Cortex, also based on SharePoint, delivers knowledge and expertise in the apps you use every day to harness collective knowledge and to empower people and teams to learn, upskill, and innovate faster.

Growing faster than ever and investing for the future

Microsoft have had a bold vision for content collaboration from day one in SharePoint and brought that to many more customers and partners with the broad availability of Microsoft cloud services in 2011. The feedback and support over the last decade has enabled Microsoft to invest in the most flexible cloud content services platform—built on Microsoft Azure solutions and the Microsoft Graph—and deliver many new experiences. In the last year, as the world has pivoted to remote work, organizations of all sizes accelerated adoption of Microsoft 365 and all of their SharePoint powered experiences to skyrocket—SharePoint sites, Microsoft Teams, , Office, custom PowerApps and SPFx apps, and more.
