Most popular database management systems worldwide 2019 As of September 2019, the most popular database management system (DBMS) in the world was Oracle, with a ranking score of 1346.66; MySQL and Microsoft SQL server rounded out the top three.

Database Management Systems

As the name implies, DBMSs provide a platform through which developers can organize, update, and control large databases. Given the business world’s growing focus on big data and data analytics, knowledge of SQL programming languages has become an important asset for software developers around the world, and database management skills such as MongoDB and Elasticsearch are seen as highly desirable. In addition to providing developers with the tools needed to operate databases, DBMS are also integral to the way that consumers access information through applications, which further illustrates the importance of the software.
