Oracle leads the pack in 2005 database sales

In this interesting article, written by  Martin LaMonica of CNET, we find that Oracle is leadign the way in relational database sales this year:

The foremost global market intelligence and advisory firm in IT and telecommunications industries, IDC, has released preliminary results from their annual survey of relational market shares. This is what they found:

Preliminary results from IDC's annual survey of relational-database market share indicate that spending went up 11.6 percent to $14.9 billion in 2004. Those numbers, however, were inflated by the low value of the U.S. dollar compared with other currencies.

In this article, IDC has released numbers that show that Oracle is leading the way among the three main database providers, which are Microsoft, IBM, and Oracle.
We see that:

According to IDC's preliminary numbers, Oracle pulled in 41.3 percent of relational-database spending, up slightly from the year before. IBM came in at 30.6 percent, down a fraction compared with 2003 IDC numbers. And Microsoft's share grew to 13.4 percent, which represents a growth rate of almost 11 percent.
