Use of In-Memory Databases Up 40% Since Fall 2012 New Evans Data Survey Shows

Santa Cruz, CA, May 16, 2013 --( The number of developers using in-memory databases has increased 40% worldwide from 18% to 26% during the last six months, according to Evans Data’s new Global Development Survey, an in-depth technology adoption survey of over 1300 developers worldwide. An additional 39% globally say they plan to incorporate in-memory databases into their development work within the next 12 months.

Developers in North America and the Asia Pacific region show the strongest upturn in adoption. While a slightly higher percentage of developers in North America, 29%, now incorporate in-memory databases, almost half of those in the APAC region expect to be using one in the future. The EMEA region is the slowest to adopt the technology.

“In all regions we see a strong correlation between planned or current use of in-memory databases and the perceived importance of Big Data in the organization so that is obviously a strong driver,” said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data Corp. “But the other thing that’s interesting is the equally strong correlation between in-memory database use and use or plans for development in the Cloud.”

The survey, which covers multiple technology adoption trends and events also exhibits a strong correlation with the need for analyzing events in real-time before storing data in a repository and in-memory database use across the regions.

The Global Development Survey series is conducted twice a year worldwide in seven languages and is sold bundled or by region. Conducted last month, it will ship to subscribers May 17. Topics included in this comprehensive technology survey include: Demographics, Platform Use and Migration, Big Data and Database, Programming Models, Security, Mobile Development HTML5 Adoption, High Performance Computing, Cloud Development, Development Tools and Purchasing, Architecture and Technology Adoption and Language Use.
