North America is one of the major markets for DBMS (Database Management System). It also has a well-established market of service providers and the DBMS adoption rate is also high here. APAC and LATAM are emerging markets for DBMS with a shift in focus on Cloud DBMS. The increase in unstructured data from e-commerce and social media has given way to new types of database such as NoSQL and IMDBS (In-Memory Database Management System). An increase in data is driving enterprises to upgrade their on-premise DBMS solution to SaaS (SaaS Software as a Service) owing to the high cost saving opportunities in SaaS-based solution.

The buyer power is medium in DBMS market. There is a shift in buyer power (moving from medium to high), as the key players are attempting to capture data management market share from their competitors. One good example is Microsoft announcing free licensing offer for customers who will migrate from oracle to SQL Server.

Threat for substitution is low in the database management system market.

The competition between the top four players Oracle, Microsoft, SAP and IBM is high. These players have started offering database solutions over cloud to provide cost saving opportunities to customers.

The global database management is consolidated with the top 4 players catering to 85 percent of the market. 

Choosing an appropriate pricing model should be based on the assessment (fit gap analysis) of buyer environment. License cost is based on the server where the database is installed and the number of users accessing the database.

The report includes a descriptive regional market overview discussing the estimated market size, growth rate, maturity of service providers and maturity of buyers in North America, Europe, LATAM, APAC, and MEA.
