The database market has changed dramatically, and more enterprises are considering and using newer technologies alongside traditional relational databases. In its new Magic Quadrant report, Gartner says:
"The operational DBMS market (formerly OLTP) is evolving dramatically, with new, innovative entrants and incumbents supporting the growing use of unstructured data and NoSQL DBMS engines. Information management leaders must understand the market implications affecting DBMS technology decisions."
