NoSQL LinkedIn Skills Index – June 2015

MongoDB has maintained its feat from last quarter of being responsible for more than 50% of all mentions of NoSQL database in LinkedIn member profiles.

As with Q1 there were once again three changes of position in the rankings in Q2. DynamoDB overtook Riak to claim eighth place, having also gained a place (on MarkLogic) in the previous quarter.

Further down the list ArangoDB also gained a place for the second successive quarter – this time on AllegroGraph, while Titan gained a place on Voldemort. As noted in the previous blog post, FoundationDB has been removed from the analysis following its acquisition.

The fastest growth in the quarter was recorded by RethinkDB, with mentions up 46.1%, followed by multi-model players OrientDB (33%) and ArangoDB (32.7%), as well as Aerospike (26%). Inside the top ten, DynamoDB had the fastest growth (17.0%).

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.

NoSQL LinkedIn Skills Index – December 2013

There’s an early end to the quarter for our NoSQL LinkedIn Skills Index, based on the number of LinkedIn member profiles mentioning each of the NoSQL projects, just as there was in 2012.

We predicted in Q3 that Couchbase would overtake MarkLogic this quarter, which came to pass, but were somewhat surprised to see Couchbase also leapfrog Riak to claim 7th place. It’s almost too close to call between the three, though we wouldn’t be surprised to see those places change hands in the coming quarters.

There were no other changes of position outside the top ten, although Titan is bearing down on Hypertable having recorded the fastest growth in Q4 (49.5%) and can be expected to gain a place in Q1 2014. The second fastest climber, in terms of mentions, was FoundationDB, followed by ArangoDB, RethinkDB and Apache Cassandra (the latter being particularly notable since it was the only one of the five fastest growers to also be one of the top ten most mentioned in LinkedIn member profiles).

That growth was of course not enough to close the gap on MongoDB as the most mentioned NoSQL database in LinkedIn member profiles, although for the first time MongoDB’s proportion of the overall total actually declined – from 49% in Q3 to 48%, upsetting our prediction that MongoDB would pass the 50% threshold in Q4.

Q42013

It will be interesting to see whether MongoDB’s dominance declines again in Q1, although either way it retains a monumental lead over all the other NoSQL databases in terms of mentions in LinkedIn profiles.

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.

NoSQL LinkedIn Skills Index – September 2013

With our rebooted NoSQL LinkedIn Skills Index, based on the number of LinkedIn member profiles mentioning each of the NoSQL projects, now into its second year, I thought it was a good time to add some newer projects to the list; specifically: ArangoDB, FoundationDB, RethinkDB, and Titan.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone to find that those four new additions failed to make a dent in the top ten list of the NoSQL databases most often cited in LinkedIn profiles. However, there is still some interesting activity this quarter, with Riak leapfrogging MarkLogic (as predicted).

Outside the top ten, Apache Accumulo overtook Voldemort, and saw the second fastest growth in mentions in Q3, behind only DynamoDB and ahead of Neo4j, MongoDB, and Cassandra.

That growth saw MongoDB extend its lead as the most popular NoSQL database, according to LinkedIn profile mentions. As the chart below illustrates, it now accounts for 49% of all mentions of NoSQL technologies in LinkedIn profiles, according to our sample, compared with 47% in June.

Incidentally, adding the four new NoSQL databases to the analysis did not have a significant impact on MongoDB’s share. Without them it still registered 49%. Expect MongoDB to pass the 50% threshold in Q4, however, as well as Couchbase to overtake MarkLogic.

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.
