TECH BUYER Jun 2019 - IDC Perspective - Doc # US45179219

Choosing the Right Database Technology in the Age of Digital Transformation

By: Carl W. OlofsonResearch Vice President, Data Management Software


This IDC Perspective considers the dizzying range of options facing most users looking to build or implement new data applications addressing new workloads, modernize their existing workloads, or introduce new data-driven capabilities into the enterprise. It examines the data landscape, showing where the various types of workloads and technologies fit, and provides a list of example vendors and products that address those various needs.

"The data management landscape can be very confusing. So many vendors, with very different technologies, tend to make competing claims in a wide variety of use cases," says Carl Olofson, research vice president for Data Management Software research at IDC. "While a wide range of technologies can be used to do a variety of jobs at a simple level, specialized technologies are usually best when dealing with tasks that require specific functionality operating with a high degree of precision on large volumes of data and that feature scalability, data structure flexibility, integrity, or some combination of these."
