Data is the lifeblood of your business, which means that your database management solution is the single most important tech investment your organization will make. But enterprises of all sizes face a major challenge when deciding how to handle their assets and applications: not only is data growing at an exponential rate—so are the management options they have to decide between.

Luckily, Gartner took the time to comb through all of the different technologies that populate the data management landscape and explore what benefits they provide, and where they might fall short of your expectations. Including both market mainstays and up-and-coming innovations, Gartner’s “Hype Cycle for Data Management” report goes in-depth into each and every technology you may be considering.

When it comes to weighing the solutions you’ll be relying on for the most mission-critical elements of your stack, we believe the Hype Cycle model is one of the most effective. By charting a technology’s expectation over time, this approach helps businesses understand where various candidates fall in the database management market and where they’re likely to sit down the line. This provides a snapshot of what a given solution can do for your enterprise now, and whether it will continue to serve you as your company grows over time.

EDB—which was named in both the 2021 and 2022 Hype Cycle reports—has seen firsthand the impact a data management solution can have on an organization. It can be the lynchpin of your digital transformation or a long-term impediment to modernization. Dive in and discover what data management will look like for your enterprise.
