Worldwide Nonrelational Database Management Systems Software Forecast, 2016–2020
This IDC study covers the nonrelational database management systems (NDBMSs) software market, providing a forecast to 2020, with five historical years. It also offers a commentary on the market and trends going forward as well as forecast assumptions in terms of market drivers and inhibitors. It supersedes the prior forecast published in Worldwide Nonrelational Database Management Systems Software Forecast, 2015–2019 (IDC #258162, August 2015)."This forecast reflects the rising success of those NDBMS products aimed at new application types including customer-intimate applications driving mobile apps, IoT data collection and classification, and general external data collection and curation," says Carl Olofson, research vice president for Database Management Software research at IDC. "The growth of these products now eclipses the flat growth of older navigational DBMSs, resulting in double-digit growth through the forecast period."
