“The pace of change continues,” Gartner said in its Magic Quadrant. “There is constant improvement in each of the [vendors’] products as each seeks to fill in the gaps versus its competitors.”

Gartner’s Magic Quadrant For Cloud DBMS

To make Gartner’s 2022 Cloud Database Management Systems Magic Quadrant, vendors need to fully supply provider-managed public or private cloud software systems that manage data on cloud storage.

Companies must help customers optimization strategies designed to support transactions and analytical processing for use cases such as data lake, data warehouse, streaming analytics, lightweight transactions and stream event processing,

Gartner’s Magic Quadrant ranks vendors on their ability to execute and completeness of vision and places them in four categories: Niche Players (low on vision and execution), Visionaries (good vision but low execution), Challengers (good execution but low vision) and Leaders (excelling in both vision and execution).

Here are the 20 world leading cloud database management system companies that made Gartner’s Magic Quadrant, along with their strengths and weaknesses.
