Shaken and Stirred

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From SQL Server Magazine]

SQL Server might not be the top database in terms of new license revenue, but neither is Oracle. According to Gartner Dataquest, a shake-up in the database market has yielded a new database champ: IBM. IBM's acquisition of Informix boosted Big Blue into the No. 1 spot for 2001 with a 34.6 percent share of the worldwide database management system (DBMS) market. This represents a 4.3 percent growth in IBM's share from 2000.

Oracle, besieged with bug reports on its not-so-unbreakable Oracle 9i, drops to the No. 2 position with a 32 percent market share, a decrease of 4.9 percent. SQL Server remains in third position with a market share of 16.3 percent. And Sybase follows at a distant 2.6 percent.
