According to Gartner, in 2011, 91% of the database software market was controlled by five vendors, with Oracle leading the pack with a 43.1% share. i Organizations invested in Oracle because the company's technology stack made sound technical sense for their business. With the maturation of cloud computing, however, the landscape is changing.

In fact, Gartner forecasts that "by 2022, 75% of all databases will be deployed or migrated to a cloud platform, with only 5% ever considered for repatriation to on-premises." ii And, with two of the most important companies in enterprise IT—Microsoft and Amazon—offering compelling cloud database options, organizations have more choices than ever before. navisite.com | navisite.com/uk
