Microsoft was judged the best company to partner with for applications, outscoring a long list of competitors ranging from such giants as Oracle and SAP to more specialized application vendors like Adobe and Autodesk.
Microsoft, of course, is well known for its Office desktop productivity applications (see slide No. 2). But the company also competes against vendors such as SAP and Salesforce.com in the enterprise ERP and CRM application markets.
