OEM and Reseller Agreement Signed as MarkLogic Expands into Asia Pacific
As issues with managing the volume, velocity, variety, and complexity of Big Data have increased globally, NTT DATA knew it needed to start building solutions that can leverage this new data paradigm. That’s why the company entered into a strategic partnership in January 2012 with MarkLogic Corporation, the company powering mission-critical Big Data Applications around the world. NTT DATA is one of the top system integrators in Japan and will leverage MarkLogic’s expertise in managing and analyzing unstructured data for Big Data Applications. The partnership also signifies MarkLogic’s first major initiative in the Asia-Pacific market as the company continues to expand globally.
“We first discovered MarkLogic during a thorough market analysis of non-relational technology companies,” said Shinichiro Miyake, Executive Manager Financial Sector, NTT DATA. “After an extensive evaluation, we came to the conclusion that MarkLogic is the best company in this market to partner with. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with MarkLogic in this area.”
The partnership is a result of a search for new innovations for managing and analyzing unstructured data. Through the partnership, MarkLogic and NTT DATA will work together to build joint services and solutions for the Japanese market. The products and services will be designed to help Japanese companies overcome the challenges with unstructured data and will enable those companies to start building Big Data Applications on all of their data.
“Our partners are experts in their respective regions and verticals, and NTT DATA is a world class partner that can accelerate our entry into Asia Pacific,” said David Ponzini, vice president, MarkLogic APAC. “Through this partnership, NTT DATA will become Asia Pacific’s first technology provider to leverage MarkLogic to offer real-time Big Data Applications to its customers. We’re looking forward to growing with NTT DATA and to explore new growth opportunities in the Asia Pacific market.”
