Top 10 most popular databases in 2020

By Adrián Savarese

A database is a place where the application stores and organizes all the data, while a database management system (DBMS) is software for conveniently managing this database.

The way that the app manages data plays a crucial role in delivering a positive user experience. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how well the app’s interface is designed and how clean the code is unless the application is capable of quickly retrieving, processing, and delivering information. Moreover, all of this data should be protected so that intruders can’t get their hands on it.

There are more than 300 database management systems on the market. Choosing between so many tools is truly overwhelming. This year, the Stack Overflow Developer Survey surveyed about 65,000 developers, where they voted on their daily-used programming languages, go-to tools, libraries and more.
