For this Magic Quadrant, Gartner defines a data management solution for analytics as a “complete software system that supports and manages data in one or many file management systems (most commonly a database or multiple databases). These solutions include specific optimization strategies designed for supporting analytical processing including but not limited to relational processing, nonrelational processing (such as graph processing), and machine learning or programming languages such as python or R. Data is not necessarily stored in a relational structure and can use multiple models (relational, document, key-value, text, graph, geospatial and others).”
