Couchbase Named a Big Data NoSQL Leader by Independent Research Firm

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--()--Couchbase today announced it was named a leader by an independent research firm in “The Forrester Wave™: Big Data NoSQL, Q3 2016.” We believe Couchbase’s standing in the report reflects its significant momentum in enabling leading organizations in verticals such as e-commerce, online video-streaming, healthcare, financial services, and gaming to succeed in today’s Digital Economy.

“NoSQL is not an option — it has become a necessity to support next-generation applications…29 percent of technology decision-makers in our 2016 survey tell us they have either already implemented or are implementing NoSQL technology; 12 percent are expanding or upgrading their implementations,” said the Forrester report.

The report examined 26 criteria to evaluate big data NoSQL solution providers. Couchbase was recognized in the report for providing “ease of use for document-oriented databases… Customers (such as AT&T, eBay, LinkedIn, McGraw Hill Education, Orbitz, and Tesco)… use the product to support various mission-critical workloads, including operational, analytical, and mixed workloads.”
