Oracle Database Achieves Highest Scores in all Use Cases in 2019 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Operational Database Management Systems Report

William Hardie
Vice President

In the 2019 Gartner report, 'Critical Capabilities for Operational Database Management Systems', Oracle Database again achieved the highest scores in all four Use Cases. The operational DBMS Use Cases analyzed by Gartner are; Traditional Transactions, Distributed Variable Data, Event Processing/Data in Motion and Augmented Transactions. Click any Use Case image (below) to read the full report.

Gartner says, "Our analysis synthesizes product information provided by vendors and information gathered from interactions with Gartner clients over the past 12 months. Relevant responses from our survey of the vendor's reference customers, conducted during June of 2019, are also included."

We believe Oracle's rankings are due, in part, to its strong rating for high-speed transaction processing, HA/DR and security. Indeed, Oracle’s ratings for all but two of the critical capabilities were 4.0 or above, meeting and exceeding requirements, and HA/DR was rated at 5.0, highest of all vendors.
