Worldwide Nonrelational Database Management Systems Software Market Shares, 2016: Addressing New Workloads
This IDC study reports revenue for the nonrelational database management systems market for 2014–2016, broken down by vendor, region, and operating environment shares. It compares market performance in as-reported currency with that measured by constant currency. It provides an analysis of this market for 2016, and a view forward, with actionable advice for technology suppliers. It also offers a breakdown of market revenue, split between that applied to deployments in datacenters on the premises of the user, or in a leased datacenter resource, or in on a hosting service (collectively called "on-premise/other") versus deployment in the public cloud. "This market contains vendors that are motivated by a variety of strategic goals; some involve exceling and growing their products, while others focus on 'milking' their products for as much revenue as they can generate before they become unsaleable," said Carl Olofson, research vice president for Data Management Software research at IDC. "Overall, this market is slowly evolving, and change tends to be evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Still the vendors and products are very stable and provide reliable utility for many users."
