Microstrategy is big time! Everything has gone mobile. It is not communication, apps, etc etc. Business software products or programs by different brands are not left behind either (unless Microsoft BI tools).

vSphere is indeed the best in the market as a result of its web interface and compatibility with different OS (among other excellent features). Web based programs and applications are the in thing in the modern market of this kind.
