Synergy Research: Microsoft outranks Salesforce as the leading Software as a Service provider

Dennis Bednarz

Microsoft is progressing in its cloud business and has reached a new milestone in their cloud enterprise. Microsoft has taken the lead as the leading Software as a Service (SaaS) provider.

Other rivals in this subject include Salesforce, SAP, Oracle, Adobe, ADP, IBM, Workday, Intuit and Cisco, and Microsoft now successfully took the lead from Salesforce after tieing with them in Q1 at 14 percent, as reported by eWeek.

Microsoft’s push at their Azure division has definitely made great progress in the cloud service market. Microsoft caught up to other leaders and even the giant Salesforce and finally surpassed them, but could lose in the future to Oracle that is the fastest growing SaaS provider with Microsoft following shortly after.
