Yesterday, I came across a Gartner report that released their Magic Quadrant for Identity Management as a Service (IDaaS) here. I wasn’t shocked to see after under a year in Market, Microsoft’s Azure AD Premium was right in the top right of the “Visionary” quadrant, surpassing many of its long-time vested competitors.


Identity truly is the foundation for enabling Enterprise Mobility and hybrid identity management that really builds a fantastic story with the entire Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS). If you’d like to hear more about Gartner’s thoughts on Identity and Access Management or a deep dive on Microsoft’s EMS platform, you can register for the respective webinars below:
