Summary

With DBMS products becoming more automated and self-managing, one would think that the market for a comprehensive DBMS management solution would decline. But this has not been the case: The DBMS management tool market is steadily growing, although at a slower pace, especially as enterprises look for a centralized DBMS management solution to support distributed and heterogeneous environments. Furthermore, innovation in the areas of automated database tuning, backup and recovery, replication and migrations, and integration with application and infrastructure management will further help fuel the market over the next four years. Successful products in this market have to be easy-to-use, integrated across various database functions, and capable of supporting multiple DBMS products such as DB2, MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server, and Sybase across multiple operating system platforms, including Linux, mainframe, Unix, and Windows.
