EnterpriseDB Recognized in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems

Date -2016-10-11 Location - BEDFORD, Mass. This is EDB’s fourth consecutive year being recognized in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for the Company’s ability to execute and for completeness of vision.

“EDB considers Gartner’s recognition as continued validation of the role EDB Postgres plays in empowering organizations to deliver new applications quickly on a wide range of cloud and on-premises infrastructure choices to meet today’s digital business requirements,” said Ed Boyajian, President and CEO of EnterpriseDB. “Today’s data platforms must integrate legacy systems and siloed NoSQL deployments with digital initiatives for new applications, cloud, analytics, the Internet of Things, and mobile. EDB Postgres has become a new standard to simplify the complexity of building and operating this 21st century data infrastructure.”

According to Gartner: “This Magic Quadrant deals with the key DBMS capabilities for operational processing. It should therefore interest anyone involved in defining, purchasing, building or managing an operational data processing environment — notably, CIOs, CTOs, data and analytics leaders, infrastructure managers, database and application architects, database administrators and IT purchasing managers.”

Gartner writes: “Changes in customer expectations and use cases, coupled with the corresponding changes from vendors, have resulted in a market with a largely non-differentiated vision and a shift toward execution excellence. Vendors are now firmly focused on delivering enterprise-class, hybrid OPDBMS capabilities, which is largely the domain of established incumbent vendors looking to expand their share of wallet with existing customers.”[1]

Speed to market is imperative and requires solutions with greater flexibility and increased effectiveness.
