ISO Standards & MarkLogic

Dominic Spitz's insight:

Standards are highly structured documents with many references between them and content too important to be locked inside a PDF. This presentation explains how the International Organization for Standardization has moved away from single format (PDF) to XML publishing in order to unlock its standards and create new products and services. It will give an overview of ISOs XML publishing system and demonstrate its new Online Browsing Platform which allows users to search and access standards and related content online. The technical architecture and MarkLogic's role in it will be explained as well as the new opportunities the solution offers to the business.

Dominic Spitz's curator insight, May 29, 2014 12:02 PM

LONDON, May 13, 2014 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- MarkLogic Corporation , the leading Enterprise NoSQL database platform company, today announced that Norway’s three standards agencies - Standards Norway, Norwegian Electrotechnical Committee and Standard Online - have jointly selected MarkLogic 7 to power their content management and publishing platform.

 

Using MarkLogic, the three standards agencies will develop a platform that will allow them to complete the transition to an agile, all-digital delivery model for standards. The goal is to reduce the lead time for publishing new standards from one month to approximately one day.

 

The new platform, which will go live later in 2014, will make it possible for the agencies to offer a broader range of products and services to clients, including customized services for individual clients. This was not previously possible because of the inherent complexity of handling vast tracts of data and the associated business rules. A variety of subscription-based business models will be incorporated to manage these new revenue streams.

With MarkLogic 7, they will be better able to manage the huge volumes of rapidly changing metadata, tables, equations, figures and graphics associated with the localization, adoption and publishing of about 2,900 new national, European and International standards annually in Norway. The result will be a more consistent and efficient standardization process.

 

The three Norwegian standards agencies chose MarkLogic 7 to:

 

Develop a publishing platform for the future that automates the production of PDFs and other formats (e.g., HTML, e-books);

 

Manage content from all editorial workflow systems using a

 

Web-based system featuring a single XML data repository;

 

Handle embedded versioning more efficiently;

 

Deliver fully integrated enterprise search and retrieval for both internal team members and end users;

 

Provide quick and agile application development, enabling rapid

changes to be made to complex big data sets;

 

Build additional revenue streams by offering a wider range of products and services to clients.

 

“We looked at a number of NoSQL vendors but chose MarkLogic because they have a strong heritage in providing database platforms for standards agencies across the world, including ISO ,” said Trine Tveter, Managing Director at Standards Norway. “The new platform will let us improve our productivity, significantly enhance the range of products and services we offer to clients, and monetize these assets more effectively using subscription-based payments. With the new solution we aim to reduce the lead time for publishing a new standard from one month to approximately one day.”

 

MarkLogic 7 is the only schema-agnostic Enterprise NoSQL database that integrates semantics, search and application services with the enterprise features customers require for production applications. Many of the world’s largest publishers are using MarkLogic to transform their businesses. With MarkLogic, organizations can accelerate time to market, optimize data assets and streamline operations, turning data into real revenue.

Dominic Spitz's insight:

MarkLogic’s customer base includes a large number of Not-For-Profit and membership-based organisations – Societies, Institutions and others. These companies are STM (Scientific, Technical & Medical) publishers but not commercial STM publishing organisations. They therefore share some similar challenges when it comes to information sharing and content publishing but they have a different set of priorities and goals.

Norwegian Triad opts for 'data centricity'

Norwegian Triad opts for 'data centricity' | How Royal Societies, Institutes and Standard Bodies leverage MarkLogic | Scoop.it

The central concept behind ‘data centricity’ is consolidating data into one centrally referenced resource, instead of having separate copies of data spread about various departments of an organization.

Dominic Spitz's insight:

Database vendor MarkLogic claims its new model of ‘data centric data centers’ can increase productivity by 30-fold and cut the storage burden in data centers by 90%.

 

The company made the argument as it announced that Standards Norway, Norwegian Electrotechnical Committee and Standard Online have jointly selected MarkLogic 7 to power their content management and publishing platform.

 

The central concept behind ‘data centricity’ is consolidating data into one centrally referenced resource, instead of having separate copies of data spread about various departments of an organization.

 

These ‘silos’ of data have historically served applications that run separate functions, such as marketing, accounts and subscriptions.

MarkLogic’s VP for EMEA Adrian Carr argued, however, that taking data out to applications is like the tail wagging the dog.

 

He said that the duplication of data involved has led to escalating costs and a loss of control. Data centric data centers will put the data at the center and make the applications come to them, Carr said.

 

“Each time you replicate data by moving it to the applications, you need more hardware,” Carr said.

 

According to the NoSQL database vendor, removing silos of data cuts hardware costs and makes applications, such as big data analysis queries, run in a fraction of the time.

 

As evidence, MarkLogic announced that it has been selected by three Norwegian standards agencies to power their new joint content management and publishing platform.

 

Using MarkLogic 7, the standards agencies have pledged to cut the lead time for publishing 2,900 new standards annually from one month to one day.

 

According to Standard Norway’s MD Trine Tveter, the speed of the new ‘data centric’ data center model will also enable the company to create business models.

 

“The new platform will let us improve our productivity and monetize these assets more effectively using subscription-based payments,” Tveter said.
