Nick Heudecker (Gartner):
The results were largely what I expected, except for the respondent profile.
Database administrators (DBAs) appear to be significantly underrepresented
in the NoSQL space, representing only 5.5% of respondents
Question here is why is this happening? Keeping in mind the survey’s audience is “NoSQL adopters”, I’m wondering what combination of the following explains the results:
- DBAs see no value in NoSQL
- DBAs see no job security
- DBAs see a drop in their revenue with NoSQL
- DBAs are misinformed
- DBAs are change resistant (putting them in the later phases of adoption)
I’d go with a combination of 5 (explained mostly by 3) and 4.
