EnterpriseDB Positioned in the Challenger Quadrant in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems

Bedford, MA - October 28, 2013 - EnterpriseDB (EDB), the leading worldwide provider of enterprise-class Postgres products and Oracle database compatibility solutions, today announced it has been positioned in the Challenger Quadrant in the Gartner report, Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems.* Timing of the designation follows significant advances in EnterpriseDB's Postgres Plus Advanced Server, which combined with Oracle compatibility have been proven to support both mission critical and non-mission critical applications.

Positioned in the Challenger Quadrant, EnterpriseDB is apart from the companies positioned as Niche Players, many of which have emerged in recent years to leverage new capabilities developed under the NoSQL umbrella. EnterpriseDB sees the positioning as notable because the only companies named as Leaders - Oracle, Microsoft, IBM and SAP - were the same four that have long dominated the industry, and EnterpriseDB is the only relational database emerging to close the gap.

EnterpriseDB is the largest Postgres software and services provider with enterprise-class software, professional services, support and training to ensure success with Postgres. More than 2,000 enterprises, government agencies and other organisations worldwide use EnterpriseDB products and services to successfully deploy Postgres, reduce their reliance on costly traditional databases and slash database costs by more than 80 percent. EnterpriseDB has confirmed that in all, 21 customers were surveyed by Gartner in their research for the report.

"We believe the Gartner designation affirms our leadership and ability to execute in the marketplace. We are seeing a rapid increase in the number of Fortune 1000 companies adopting Postgres to support their businesses because of our technology innovation and strength of our offerings," said Ed Boyajian, CEO and president of EnterpriseDB. "This market snapshot puts the leaders on notice that open source technology is closing in and we're poised to transform the relational market."

"This Magic Quadrant deals with the key capabilities of information management for transaction processing. It should therefore interest anyone involved in defining, purchasing, building or managing a transaction processing environment; notably, CIOs, CTOs, infrastructure management, database and application architects, database administrators and IT purchasing managers," stated the report.
