Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Database Management Systems names Google a Leader

#databases

We’re announcing today that Google has been named a Leader in the first-ever Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Database Management Systems (DBMS), 2020. We believe this recognition is due to Google Cloud's data analytics and databases vision and strategy, and is echoed by the growth in customers across all industries and geographies selecting Google Cloud as their data platform of choice. 

Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Database Management Systems names Google a Leader

Gartner has positioned Google as a Magic Quadrant Leader among the furthest three positioned vendors on the completeness-of-vision axis. We are delivering on our multi-cloud and hybrid promise, showcasing adoption across a diverse customer base in every region and industry, setting the new standard for flexible pricing with strong financial governance capabilities, and partnering across a diverse ecosystem. We’re making our vision a reality and are proud of the work we’re doing as the first hyperscale provider to offer a multi-cloud data warehouse with BigQuery Omni. In addition, we offer the industry's most flexible pricing with Committed Use Discounts across Cloud SQL engines; instant insights for your entire business with Data QnA; and even better reliability and development experience with Cloud Spanner, just to name a few.

In today’s world, it’s clear that you have to consider a comprehensive end-to-end ecosystem of data analytics and database services to get full value from your data. So it doesn’t make sense to evaluate analytic and operational use cases in isolation. Per our understanding, as the operational and analytic markets for database management systems (DBMSs) have converged, Gartner has converged its evaluations into a single DBMS Magic Quadrant, with vendors and products that provide support for both classes of use cases. Having been a Leader in both of the previous Magic Quadrants, we’re very supportive of this move, since it aligns to the way our enterprise customers buy, deploy, and consume our services. 

Moving the focus to customer innovation, not infrastructure

Enterprises like Procter & GambleVodafone, and Sharechat have trusted Google Cloud to help them build and scale their products faster while improving digital customer experiences using our fully managed data platform.  

“We’re always looking to ensure a great consumer experience across all our categories, from healthcare to beauty products and much more,” says Vittorio Cretella, CIO, Procter & Gamble. “As a leader in analytics and AI, Google Cloud is a strategic partner helping us offer our consumers superior products and services that provide value in a secure and transparent way.”

We are honored to be a Leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Database Management Systems (DBMS), and look forward to continuing to innovate and partner with you on your digital transformation journey.
