Worldwide Relational Database Management Systems Forecast, 2018–2022
This IDC study contains a five-year forecast for the relational database management systems (RDBMS) market from 2018 to 2022, broken out by geographic region, operating environment, and on-premise deployment versus public cloud service (PCS) deployment. It also contains a discussion of factors likely to drive and inhibit revenue growth in this market over the forecast period."While NoSQL technologies have taken on many of the more tactical workloads of data management, and data lakes provide low-cost space of holding and analyzing data, the remaining distinguishing contribution that RDBMSs make is in the area of managing, or directing the management, of data based on how it is defined and related," says Carl Olofson, research vice president for Data Management Software research at IDC. "As enterprises increasingly evaluate their data, seeking to make it more available to a broader audience while keeping controls in place, users will look at enterprise RDBMS as a key base platform for doing so."
