NoSQL LinkedIn Skills Index – March 2015

It finally happened: 11 quarters in to our NoSQL LinkedIn Skills Index, which tracks mentions of NoSQL database in LinkedIn member profiles, MongoDB finally hits the 50% mark, representing half of all mentions of NoSQL databases in Q1.

That wasn’t the only change in the rankings in Q1 as there were no fewer than three changes of position in the rankings. In the top 10 DynamoDB overtook MarkLogic to claim ninth place, while lower down OrientDB overtook Aerospike in 12th place, while ArangoDB overtook Sparksee to enter the top 20.

In fact, ArangoDB recorded the highest rate of growth in the quarter, with LinkedIn mentions up 77.4%. We would expect it to overtake FoundationDB in Q2 even if the latter hadn’t just been taken out of the market by Apple. As such we’ll remove it from the rankings next quarter anyway.

It was a good quarter for other multi-model databases as well as ArangoDB as OrientDB climbed a place thanks to 42.5% growth. Aerospike lost that place to OrientDB despite recording the third fastest growth rate, with 29.6%. Other fast climbers were FoundationDB, Titan (despite Aurelius being acquired by DataStax – incidentally Titan will remain in the rankings since it remains available) and RethinkDB.

Inside the top ten, DynamoDB had the fastest growth (20.2%) and stands a chance of gaining another place next quarter by overtaking Riak.

Of course, we would also note that this is not meant to be a comprehensive analysis, but rather a snapshot of one particular data source.
