Microsoft leading the Magic Quadrant for Social Software in the Workplace through SharePoint

Microsoft moved forward considerably on the 2010 Social Software for the Workplace Magic Quadrant.  Microsoft maintained its #1 position on the Ability to Execute axis and moved forward rather substantially on the Completeness of Vision axis, overtaking IBM 3and several other competitors there and coming very close to Jive.

Also it’s worth mentioning that there are two competitors who are NOT present in the 2010 Social Software for the Workplace MQ: Google and Cisco.
