There is Only One DBMS Market!

On 16-Jul-2019, Gartner published new research titled “There is Only One DBMS Market”, by Adam RonthalDonald Feinberg and Merv Adrian. This follows closely on last month’s declaration that “The Future of the DBMS Market Is Cloud” by the same authors. This is the second of two notes that aim to redefine how we cover this market. The first introduced the thesis that the cloud is now the default platform for managing data. In this note, we remove the artificial separation of the DBMS market into analytic and operational focused segments. There is only one DBMS market with six use cases, and while this applies to on-premises use as well as cloud, it will increasingly be realized in the cloud.
