re: Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Vs. Oracle: Customers Voting
I've revised this article to remove "double-digit annual" from the description of Microsoft's BI market share gains. Indeed, Microsoft has seen double-digit gains in BI marketshare over the last five years, but it has not seen such gains every year. In 2009, for instance, Microsoft had a 8.1% market share gain, the largest of any vendor that year, according to IDC figures. But in the very latest data available, Gartner numbers for 2011 published just last week (April 2) show Microsoft BI market share was flat from 2010 to 2011 at 8.7%. Thus, Microsoft held steady as the fifth-largest BI vendor (in terms of revenue) after SAP, Oracle, SAS, and IBM, respectively. -- Doug Henschen

The Business of Going Digital
Digital business isn't about changing code; it's about changing what legacy sales, distribution, customer service, and product groups do in the new digital age. It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
