If big data is a big party, Hadoop would be at the center and be surrounded by Hive, Giraph, YARN, NoSQL, and the other exotic technologies that generate so much excitement.
MarkLogic continues to enhance it's approach to NoSQL further confirming it's the adult at the party. MarkLogic 7 includes enhancements to enterprise search as well as Tiered Storage and integration with Hadoop.
MarkLogic Semantics, also part of MarkLogic 7, provides organizations with the ability to enhance the content experience for users by including an even richer experience that includes semantic facts, documents and values in the same search experience. By doing this, organizations can surface semantic facts stored in MarkLogic when users are searching for a topic or person of interest. For example, if a user searches all unstructured data on a topic, facts about authors, publication dates, related articles and other facts about the topic would be part of the search results.
This could be applied in many ways. Intelligence analysts may be interested in facts about people of interest. Fraud and AML analysts could be interested in facts about customers with unusual transaction behavior. Life Sciences companies may want to include documents, facts about the drug manufacturing process and values about pharma products as part of the search results.
Today, traditional search applications are being replaced by smarter, content rich semantic search. This addition to MarkLogic continues to confirm that all of this can be done within a single, unified architecture saving organizations development time, money and resources while delivering enterprise grade technology used in the most mission critical applications today.
