Re: Looking for the resulting data.
There is an excel file; I'll see why it wasn't posted.  (It's usually a link from the report page).

Re: Looking for the resulting data.
Jemison, I was able to find that, but was looking for the results to the survey in a table format, which would list the DB,s included, along with the percentage. Thanks.

Looking for the resulting data.
Joe, is the resulting data from this survey be available in tabular format.   It is a great survey, and the full list of databases owned (excluding by who) and percentages would be of help for supporting an understand of where the market is as of this year,

Training issue
Isn't this as much as anything a training and skills issue -- the number of people with training and experience managing SQL databases as opposed to NoSQL ones?

Value is clear but NoSQL must wait
As relational database was born in the mid-1980s, there was huge interest in it, along with constant headlines. IBM purposefully undersold it at the start due to customer disbelief and IBM worries about upending existing mainframe data management. The production systems remained such things as Cullinet IDMS, IBM's IMS and various other heirarchical systems. Lots of education on relilability precedes broad market acceptance, even when the usefulness is perfectly clear.

Re: Great report, but the market is more dynamic today
At the very least, it does seem that NoSQL is putting some pressure put on the Big 3 database vendors to keep innovating and not raise prices quite as much. Competition is competition.

Re: Great report, but the market is more dynamic today
The issue is really a "scoreboard" one.  $30 billion RDBMS market; $0 billion NoSQL market.  I agree that the analytical database space has shown more progression, but I really see that as a result of how intractable and expensive the original, traditional EDWs were.  Analytical databases are still niche compared to RDBMSs, and much more reporting and analysis is done out of RDBMSs than analytical databases.

Hadoop use case
I'm hearing that some banks see Hadoop as a tool in meeting regulatory requirements. Banks are having to do stress testing often enough that they need the speed of Hadoop to meet the demand.
