        The Data Platforms Buyers Guide is designed to provide a holistic view of a software provider’s ability to serve a combination of both operational and analytic workloads with either a single data platform product or set of data platform products. Separately, we have also created the Operational Data Platforms Buyers Guide, which assesses software providers and products positioned as operational data platforms on their ability to serve the specific requirements of operational use cases, and the Analytic Data Platforms Buyers Guide, which excludes dedicated operational functionality and data platforms.
