Forrester put out its Enterprise Data Management Q2 2009 report a few days ago, you can buy it from Forrester but it also seems to now be available for free from Microsoft here. I don’t actively seek out these reports as they usually just re-enforce common knowledge (this one was no exception), however as it turned up I managed to find some time on the weekend for a quick read through.
Few surprises in this report, but some key mentions are:
- DBMS market expected to grow 8% annually
- IBM, Microsoft & Oracle own 88% of the DBMS market (by revenue)
- Current market estimated at $27 billion, $32 billion by 2013
