DATABASE MARKET SHOWS STRONG GROWTH, SAYS DATAQUEST.

Oracle Corp had a 46.1% share of the worldwide Windows NT market in 1998, against Microsoft's 29.7%, the gap between the two companies widening for a third consecutive year, according to new statistics released by Dataquest. On Unix platforms, Dataquest's figures reveal that Oracle had 60.9% of the market last year, followed by Informix with a 13.2% share and by IBM and Sybase with a 7.3% and 7.1% share respectively. The overall market for new database (DBMS) licenses grew 15% in 1998, reaching US$7.1bn, the growth due largely to increased demand for Internet applications, electronic commerce and data warehousing, while Dataquest predicts that the overall DBMS market will grow to US$10bn by 2003.
