Sales figures for analytic DBMS

One of my clients asked how many new customers I thought were buying analytic DBMS each quarter. I don’t generally track such things, but hey — a client asked, so I did the best I could. And since I did the work, now I’ll share it generally. To wit:

The client agreed with these figures.

Upon review, that figure of 10 could probably be made to look too low, just by expanding the list of vendors enough. E.g., how many copies of NeoView sell each quarter? How many commercial users are there of the open source MonetDB? Still, when assessing the “mainstream” market, it doesn’t feel misleading.

And by the way, different analytic DBMS vendors sometimes have the same new customers.
