Worldwide Relational Database Management Systems Software Market Shares, 2017: The Race to the Cloud
This IDC study presents the vendor shares by revenue for the relational database management systems (RDBMS) market in 2017, together with the historical years 2016 and 2015. It also shows the market revenue breakdown by geographic region and operating environment and provides a comparison of historical performance by current currency versus constant currency. It offers interpretations and commentary regarding these findings as well as advice for vendors."While most relational database users, and most relational data, are still firmly based in leased datacenter spaces or datacenters on the premises (collectively called "on-premises"), relational database management system vendors know that the future of this data is in the cloud and they are actively battling to hold on to their existing customers and attract new ones, each moving them to that vendor's cloud platform," says Carl Olofson, research vice president for Data Management Software research at IDC. "This story is by no means over; the majority of product user data will not have moved to the cloud for several years, so there is still time for others to establish a vital and viable position in the cloud RDBMS realm."
