BEDFORD, Mass. – September 13, 2016 – EnterpriseDB® (EDB™), the leading enterprise Postgres database company, today announced it has been named a Strong Performer by Forrester Research in its report, The Forrester Wave™: Document Stores, Q3 2016.

According to the report: “Today, hundreds of organizations leverage EnterpriseDB to deliver modern document-driven business applications, including transactional, operational, analytical, and mixed-mode workloads. EnterpriseDB software is available on-premises, in the public cloud on AWS and Google Marketplace, in private clouds on OpenStack, in appliances through ShadowSoft and Avnet, and as a dedicated DBaaS with PPCD on AWS. Firms like EnterpriseDB’s ability to support relational and JSON in the same database to handle various use cases.”

Report author Noel Yuhanna of Forrester Research writes, “Enterprises have an increasing number of choices in leveraging either a dedicated document store technology or existing relational databases with extended document capabilities with JSON format.”

One of only 10 solution providers featured in The Forrester Wave™: Document Stores report, EnterpriseDB was among vendors with the second-highest scores for road map and ability to execute criteria. The report states, “EnterpriseDB’s platform supports a variety of use cases and workloads that can leverage relational and JSON together.”

Marc Linster, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Products and Services at EnterpriseDB, said, “EDB is honored to be recognized by Forrester among the NoSQL document store solution providers. We believe the recognition in this report validates the EDB Postgres Platform as a multi-model database management system that combines the best of both relational and schema-less capabilities.”
