Azure Cosmos DB: The Rise of Data NoSQL Platforms

Microsoft Azure Cosmos DB has been named a leader among NoSQL providers in the Forrester Wave™: Big Data NoSQL, Q1 2019.

Forrester defines big data NoSQL as: A nonrelational database management system that provides storage, processing, and accessing of any type of data and which supports a horizontal, scale-out architecture based on a schemaless and flexible data model

NoSQL is more than a decade old. It has gone from supporting simple schemaless apps to becoming a mission-critical data platform for large Fortune 1000 companies. It has already disrupted the database market, which was dominated for decades by relational database vendors. Today, half of global data and analytics technology decision makers either have implemented or are implementing NoSQL platforms, taking advantage of the benefits of a flexible database that serves a broad range of use cases.

While many organizations are complementing their relational databases with NoSQL, some have started to replace them to support improved performance, scale, and lower their database costs.
