"...since the company's serious entry into the market in 2000, Microsoft's BI market share has grown steadily to take the No. 3 spot in 2011. With the new functionality added and planned for Microsoft Excel, we expect Microsoft's market share growth to continue."

"OLAP continues to be a widely deployed capability of the Microsoft BI platform, with more than 90% of Microsoft customers reporting they use it. This is among the highest adoption compared with other vendors. This success can be attributed to the packaging of Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services functionality, its use as an optimization layer in most Microsoft BI deployments, and because of its optimizations with Microsoft front-end tools."
