Survey Results – Primary Database in Use on LewisC’s An Expert’s Guide To Oracle Technology

I’m starting to gather the data from my survey. When I get all the data gathered, I will post it as a downloadable file. Until then, I will post some summary data. This data shows the current PRIMARY database in use at the respondents companies. I find the data suspect and you’ll see why. This data has not been cleaned and duplicate IP addresses have not been removed. This is totally raw data and should remain suspect until after cleansing. Still, it is interesting.

I have serious doubts that Firebird is primary database at 25.71% of the respondents. I think I may find some duplicate IP Addresses with that answer. I’m not really surprised at the remainder of the answers though.

I also posted a summary of countries who answered and a few questions on open source software usage.
