As previously mentioned, one of my most popular pieces of research while at 451 has been the database landscape graphic we produced for our NoSQL, NewSQL and Beyond report.
I recently published an updated version but noted that there were a group of database vendors that had emerged in 2012 that didn’t easily fit into the segments we’d created.
In order to address that I went back to the drawing board and, taking inspiration from London Underground and The Real Story Group, set about mapping the connections between the various players in the database space.
The result is as follows. (Please note: the following graphic has been superseded by the February 2013 version.)
I’ll be honest – I’m not convinced that this is as practically useful as the original, although I believe it is more accurate and it was an
exhausting interesting exercise to put it together.
If anyone spots any glaring omissions or errors please
keep them to yourself let us know. Additionally, the image is also available on posters, mugs, t-shirts and mouse pads, for a small fee
Of course, if you’re looking for some perspective on what this all means, I can recommend one of our highly competitive subscription packages…
