One might think the pace of growth is inversely proportional to the size of the company. Well, in most cases, yes. But when it comes to the world’s largest public company, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), market cap is just a number. The case to present is Microsoft’s enterprise SAAS business.

The company has a huge Intelligent Cloud business that generated revenues of $9.7 billion in the latest reported quarter. Interestingly, this segment, comprising server products and enterprise services, showed the highest growth among its three units of 22%.

A recent report reinstates Microsoft’s dominating presence in this market. According to Synergy Research Group, the Satya Nadella-led firm has the highest market share of 17% in the enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) market. Microsoft is followed by Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), Adobe (NASDAQ: ADBE), SAP (NYSE: SAP) and Oracle (NYSE: ORCL).  

These five companies together held more than half of the enterprise SaaS market share, according to the report.

Chief Analyst at Synergy Research Group John Dinsdale said, “There will be consolidation, with the impending Salesforce acquisition of Tableau Software being a prime example, but there will remain many opportunities for new market entrants to make an impact.”
