NuoDB Sponsors IDG Research Study on Enterprise Concerns

Cambridge, MA — December 18, 2013 — NuoDB, Inc., the NewSQL leader in distributed database technology, announced the results of a survey of top IT executives conducted by IDG Research Services, the world leader in technology and media research. NuoDB commissioned the survey to gain insight into the evolving database management system (DBMS) market. IT executives were polled to understand their top DBMS concerns and evaluation criteria.

Geo-Distribution is a significant future concern

Overwhelmingly, IT executives said their greatest need, both now and increasingly in the future, is the ability to deploy applications globally while maintaining the same level of performance and resilience they achieve locally.

The survey addresses a range of topics affecting today’s IT organizations, and the results equip IT executives with valuable peer insights. The complete results of the survey can be found here.
