According to Gartner, the operational database management system (DBMS) market is defined as systems that also support multiple structures and data types, such as XML, text, JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), audio, image and video content. They must include mechanisms to isolate workload resources and control various parameters of end-user access within managed instances of the data.*

Gartner defines a Leader as follows: “Leaders generally demonstrate the most support for a broad range of operational applications, based on support for a wide range of data types and multiple use cases. These vendors demonstrate consistent customer satisfaction and strong customer support. Many have competed in this market for many years, and have built a wide partner ecosystem for their products. Hence, Leaders generally represent the lowest risk for customers in the areas of performance, scalability, reliability and support. As the market’s demands change, so Leaders demonstrate strong vision in support not only of the market’s current needs, but also of emerging trends. Finally, the messaging, product R&D and delivery of Leaders are in line with today’s market and with new trends in both DBMS software and hardware technology.”
