Digital Transformation: Transform Insights Rates Microsoft Leading Hyperscaler

Transforma Insights published the report ‘Hyperscaler Digital Transformation Peer Benchmarking 2021’. It analyses the relative strengths of three ‘Hyperscalers’ in delivering Digital Transformation capabilities for enterprises: Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google, and Microsoft.

The report concludes that Microsoft currently is the leading Hyperscaler. AWS is just behind overall, but with some specific key strengths. Google trails some distance behind those two in third place.
With the help of a universal rating system for vendors in Digital Transformation, Transforma Insights has analyzed the hyperscalers ability to address enterprise requirements for functional capabilities like hardware, software and systems integration. This was done across eleven technology families – among them Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things.
Commenting on the findings, author Matt Hatton said:

AWS and Microsoft particularly perform well in ‘software products’, reflecting their heavy software focus and ability to deliver the off-the-shelf products covered in the category. They also rate high for integrated solutions (i.e. full products aimed at addressing specific client requirements), application development and specialist services. Where these three companies tend to fall down is on limited capabilities in delivering hardware, although they are market leaders in particular areas such as Human Machine Interface, and anything related to field services, systems integration or consultancy. This reflects their general unwillingness to venture to far into less scalable aspects of delivering Digital Transformation.

The report states that all three companies score very well in Artificial Intelligence and Edge Computing. AWS and Microsoft also score strongly in IoT. Transforma plans to release further reports looking at the capabilities of other vendors against the same universal rating system within the next quarters. The next focus will be on major technology vendors, consultancies and systems integrators including Accenture, Atos, CGI, Cognizant, Deloitte, EY, Fujitsu, HCL, IBM, Infosys, KPMG, Oracle, SAP, TCS, Tech Mahindra, and Wipro.
