AWS, Oracle, Microsoft, Google, IBM Lead Cloud DBMS Market
Here’s the new Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Database Management Systems, which ranks the top 20 global leaders in the market—from AWS, Microsoft and Oracle to Snowflake, SAP and Databricks.
Niche Player: Neo4j
Neo4j provides the AuraDB managed service available on AWS and GCP.
The San Mateo, Calif.-based company also offers the Neo4j graph database on-premises and for private clouds, and the AuraDS data science as-a-service library for integrated AI and ML. Neo4j’s support for Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability (ACID) transactions makes it suitable beyond the typical data science use cases associated with graph.
As a pioneering developer of Graph DBMS beginning with its open source version, Neo4j has a broad community of users and loyal customers.
Weakness: Numerous graph DBMS competitors have entered the market as the overall market competition has become fierce. Multimodel DBMSs often add graph database functionality as one of their first added engines.
Strength: Peer insights reviewers of the on-premises offering ranked Neo4j high for integration and deployment and service and support. Garter said 80 percent of reviewers would recommend Neo4j.
