NoSQL LinkedIn Skills Index – December 2012

Time again to take a look at our NoSQL LinkedIn Skills Index, based on the number of LinkedIn member profiles mentioning each of the NoSQL projects. This is the first update since we rebooted the analysis in September to account for more products and refine our search terms.


On the face of it not a lot has changed in the last quarter, although there are a few interesting statistics to pick out. For instance, Neo4j is now practically tied for sixth place with MarkLogic and can be expected to overtake it in Q1 2013. Outside the top ten shown above, Apache Accumulo has gained two places – overtaking Aerospike and Hypertable.

In fact, Apache Accumulo showed the fastest rate of growth in mentions between September and December, just ahead of DynamoDB and OrientDB, followed by Couchbase and MongoDB.

MongoDB’s growth means that it has cemented its place as the most popular NoSQL database, according to LinkedIn profile mentions. As the chart below illustrates, it now accounts for 45% of all mentions of NoSQL technologies in LinkedIn profiles, according to our sample, compared with 43% in September.
