"The embedded database management system (DBMS) market is in a state of rapid evolution, one that mirrors the evolution of the applications embedded DBMSs support," says Carl Olofson, research vice president for Database Management Software research at IDC. "The IT world is moving toward the 3rd Platform of mobile, public cloud, and big data technologies, and this platform requires, in some cases, evolution, and, in others, complete transformation of business applications to address the expectations implicit in the pay-as-you-go service model of software as a service (SaaS), the flexibility and variety implicit in the increasing use of different data sources such as machine-generated and other steaming data, and the immediacy and rapid revision rates of mobile applications."
