We are pleased to report that Gartner Group, a leading technology research firm, has given Microsoft Corp. and its enterprise resource planning (ERP) product line even higher marks than before.
According to Gartner: “Magic Quadrant focuses on ERP systems that support a single-instance strategy for multi-entity midmarket and upper-midmarket companies.” In fact, Gartner says it is the company that coined the ERP acronym more than 30 years ago.
Gartner’s defines ERP as “a technology strategy that automates and links administrative and operational business capabilities (such as finance, HR, purchasing, manufacturing and distribution) with appropriate levels of integration that balance the benefits of vendor-delivered integration against business flexibility and agility.”
The Magic Quadrant is based on the ability of organizations “to support the combined administrative and operational needs of product-centric companies.”Product-centric companies can vary from less than 10 employees up to hundreds of thousands of employees.
Gartner puts Microsoft Dynamics in the “Visionaries” category, which gets us very excited as a Microsoft Gold partner.
