NoSQL is Catching On in the Enterprise

An Evans Data survey of 1,200 developers, 400 of which are enterprise developers, found that 56% of enterprise developers already use schemaless databases and 63% plan to use one in the next two years. Adoption is particularly strong in the APAC countries.

Among the general developer community, only 43% of respondents plan to use NoSQL in the next two years.

A few other findings from the survey, according to the announcement:

  • Although Mac OS is now more popular than Linux as a development desktop environment, Windows continues to dominate with over 80% using some version of Windows as their primary platform.
  • Almost 40% of North American developers are now working on apps for a wireless device.
  • Eighty percent of North American developers expect to be writing multi-threaded apps in the next two years.

More NoSQL tools and services targeting enterprises have been announced in the past few months, including EMC’s Hadoop appliance, Yahoo’s Hadoop-based spin-off and LexisNexis’ HPCC.

Disclosure: VMware, which is owned by EMC, is a ReadWriteWeb sponsor.
