At the 11th annual MarkLogic World user conference, MarkLogic Corporation, the leading operational and transactional Enterprise NoSQL database provider, revealed a preview of MarkLogic 9, the latest release of the world’s best database for integrating data from silos. New data integration, security and manageability capabilities will help organizations more easily and affordably achieve a unified, actionable 360-view of their data—which can serve as a platform for building next-generation applications that power better business decisions, reduce time to value and mitigate risk.
Many organizations and governments are struggling to leverage all of their data. Typically, their data is locked in disconnected silos, and in order to access the information these organizations are spending excessive time and money on ETL (extract, transform and load) tools in order to shoehorn data into relational databases. The problem with this approach is that customers, partners and employees demand accurate, up-to-date information in real-time, and cannot wait months or years for laborious integration projects to be completed.
The MarkLogic database is the new generation alternative to the decades-old relational database that relies on ETL tools to integrate data from silos. The MarkLogic database provides the flexibility, scalability and agility of NoSQL with enterprise-hardened features like government-grade security and high availability. Building upon these core values and features such as bitemporal, geospatial, tiered storage and cloud support, MarkLogic 9 will include new data integration technologies, enhanced security and improved manageability to further reduce the complexity and cost of data integration, access and management, while improving the integrity of an organization’s data.
New features in MarkLogic 9 revealed today include, but are not limited to:
Data Integration. MarkLogic 9 features make it easier and faster for organizations to manage the varied, often messy and costly effect of continuously changing data that exists across the enterprise.
Security. MarkLogic 9 continues to build upon industry-leading security, with new features that address how data is protected and exported, and how privacy is preserved.
Manageability. MarkLogic 9 improves the customer experience by delivering easier and proactive administration that increases staff productivity and agility.
“I couldn’t be more excited about MarkLogic 9. Our global customers have the most demanding applications in the world and they’ve helped us shape what will be a major step forward in the way databases are used and the value they provide,” said Joe Pasqua, executive vice president, Products, MarkLogic Corporation. “Customers need to leverage their data assets and they have to do it quickly, efficiently, and adaptably because they need results today and know the questions they need to ask of their data will change tomorrow. MarkLogic 9 has fantastic new capabilities and features that will make their jobs easier and their results better.”
Data experts from organizations such as Aetna, BBC, KPMG, NBCUniversal and hundreds of others are leveraging the MarkLogic database to integrate data from silos without implementing costly and time-consuming ETL tools. Enterprises and organizations can then operationalize their data to create new revenue and market opportunities, improve time to production and manage risk.
