Couchbase Wins Database Trends and Applications Readers’ Choice Award for Best In-Memory Solution

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — August 29, 2018 — Couchbase, Inc., creator of the world’s first Engagement Database, announced today that it has been selected as the winner of the Database Trends and Applications (DBTA) Readers’ Choice award in the Best In-Memory Solution category. Couchbase was also selected as a finalist in the Best NoSQL Database and Best Database (Overall) categories.
“Couchbase is honored to be recognized by DBTA readers in this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards,” said Peter Finter, CMO at Couchbase. “We are truly grateful to our community of customers, developers and partners at the massively interactive enterprises that we support, as well as our employees and the editorial team at DBTA.”
A recent Couchbase survey found that 88 percent of organizations have had a digital project fail, suffer a reduction in scope, or experience significant delays, because today’s data requirements — from rapidly changing schemas to performance at scale — cannot be supported by legacy databases. That is why leading interactive enterprises bolster their competitive advantage by using a next gen database to enable agile application development and create exceptional digital experiences. The Couchbase Data Platform is a distributed, multicloud and mobile NoSQL document database, based on a memory-first, async everywhere architecture. Today, Couchbase powers customer and employee engagement for the world’s most innovative companies, including the top 3 global distribution systems, 6 of the top 10 U.S. ecommerce companies, 3 of the top 10 international airlines, and eight of the top 25 Forbes Global 2000 companies.
“Today, more than ever, businesses are looking for ways to manage and leverage their information resources to create new opportunities and deliver a real competitive advantage,” said Tom Hogan, Group Publisher of Database Trends and Applications magazine. “There is an expanding array of solutions for storing, protecting, integrating, enhancing, and analyzing data. The DBTA Readers’ Choice Awards play a key role in spreading information about products that are providing a unique value to customers.”
DBTA created the Readers’ Choice Awards to help add perspective and acknowledge the products and services that have been deemed by our readers to provide unique value. Vendors are nominated in 28 different categories, and winners are chosen through reader voting.
