Microsoft Dominant Among Top 20 Cloud Services in Q1 2017

Microsoft services account for nearly half of the most used cloud services, according to a new report by Netskope. 

As the battle for enterprise cloud intensifies, Microsoft seems to be in good standing according to a new report by Netskope, which tracks cloud service adoption trends each quarter.

Among the top 20 cloud services/applications, Microsoft accounted for eight on the list, while Slack grew in popularity, climbing to 12 on the list from 15 in the last quarter.

The report looks at cloud service adoption and usage trends based on data from the Netskope Active Platform which tracks usage across millions of users globally.

Netskope closed a $100 million funding round last week, which the company said could be its last on the way to an IPO.  

Here are the top 20 most-used cloud services in this quarter, compared to their ranking in the last report which was released in April 2017.
