IDC MarketScape vendor analysis model is designed to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of ICT suppliers in a given market. The research methodology utilizes a rigorous scoring methodology based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria that results in a single graphical illustration of each vendors position within a given market. The Capabilities score measures vendor product, go-to-market and business execution in the short-term. The Strategy score measures alignment of vendor strategies with customer requirements in a 3-5-year timeframe. Vendor market share is represented by the size of the circles. Vendor year-over-year growth rate relative to the given market is indicated by a plus, neutral or minus next to the vendor name.

We have been hard at work to help customers enable a modern workplace with Microsoft 365 for their employees as well as provide strong data protection capabilities to keep company data protected. This report validates our vision to build an integrated platform in the cloud with a unified admin experience for identity and access management, enterprise mobility management, data protection, and security.
