NoSQL LinkedIn Skills Index – rebooted

I decided to reboot our analysis of NoSQL skills, according to LinkedIn search results.

There are two main reasons for doing so: the first iteration did not take in enough of the various NoSQL projects; and I have – with help – worked my way around the eccentricities of LinkedIn search to produce a more accurate result for Apache Cassandra.

The analysis therefore now incorporates a wider spectrum of NoSQL projects, the top ten most popular of which are displayed below. The chart illustrates the number of LinkedIn member profiles mentioning each of the NoSQL projects:


The main change from the previous results is the promotion of Apache Cassandra, thanks to our better search string, while MarkLogic is the first of our new additions to make the top ten.

What hasn’t changed is the dominance of MongoDB, which is way-ahead of all the others. While I am not breaking out growth percentages versus previous counts due to the reboot, it is fair to say that MongoDB is outpacing many of its rivals. Neo4j and DynamoDB are also growing particularly well.

In fact, as can be seen from the chart below, MongoDB accounts for 43% of all mentions of NoSQL technologies in LinkedIn profiles, according to our sample.
