Carl Olofson, Research Vice President, Application Development and Deployment at IDC, has released the “Worldwide RDBMS 2007 Vendor Shares” report. And things are looking quite good for Oracle. Oracle is leading the RDBMS market (again) with 44.1% against a share of 43.7% last year. So the Oracle market share is growing, even more important it is growing more than that of the other vendors. Meaning that Oracle is not sharing the pie with other vendors in this market segment, Oracle has established a growth of 13% where all the other vendors have a 12.1% growth.
IBM is holding 13.3% of the market and Microsoft has gone from 18.4% to 18.3%. Quite interesting figures however I am not willing to pay enormous amount IDC is asking to download the report.
