AWS, Microsoft, Google Top Cloud AI Developer Market: Gartner
CRN breaks down the strengths and weaknesses from the 13 vendors that made Gartner’s new 2022 Magic Quadrant for Cloud AI Developer Services.
The world’s largest software company won the gold medal for vision on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant and ranks No. 2 for execution.
Microsoft’s Azure AI platform has a comprehensive offering for language, vision and autoML use cases. Its services can be consumed by professional developers via APIs and SDKs, and by citizen developers via Microsoft Power Platform.
The Redmond, Wash.-based company leads the industry in terms of enterprise-quality properties, such as integration, scalability, performance, security, privacy, transparency, explainability and responsible use of AI.
Strength: Microsoft differentiates its AI developer services by making it easy for both professional programmers and citizen developers to use ML, language and vision services in their applications. Microsoft’s internal use of cloud AI developer services across its product lines provides a distinct advantage, enabling it to improve quality and time to market faster than its competitors.
Weakness: Microsoft offers its full portfolio of services in the Americas, but does not offer all these services elsewhere. Gartner said potential customers should determine whether Microsoft supports these services in their region.
