SANTA CRUZ, CA. June 28, 2011 - NoSQL is being rapidly accepted by corporate enterprise developers in North America with 56% reporting at least some use of the schemaless database and 63% citing plans to use in the next two years according to Evans Data’s recently released North American Development Survey. NoSQL is considerably stronger in the enterprise segment than within the general developer population where 43% expect to use NoSQL.
The survey of over 400 developers conducted in May, 2011 is part of Evans Data’s Global Development Survey series. This showed use of NoSQL is rising in EMEA, where 39% of developers report plans to use, and APAC where more than a quarter of the general developer population report using NoSQL today and 68% have future plans.
"The advent of Big Data is driving adoption of NoSQL, and this is especially true in the corporate enterprise" said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data Corp. "While it may have got its start on the web with innovations like Big Table and MapReduce, it’s the enterprise that can most benefit from NoSQL and developers realize this across all geographical regions."
Other highlights from this comprehensive survey of North American developers include:
---Although Mac OS is now more popular than Linux as a development desktop environment, Windows continues to dominate with over 80% using some version of Windows as their primary platform.
---Almost 40% of North American developers are now working on apps for a wireless device.
---Eighty percent of North American developers expect to be writing multi-threaded apps in the next two years.
