MarkLogic 5 is Big Data for the Enterprise

From the announcement:

SAN CARLOS, Calif. — November 1, 2011 — MarkLogic® Corporation, the company empowering organizations to make high stakes decisions on Big Data in real time, today announced MarkLogic 5, the latest version of its award-winning product designed for Big Data applications across the enterprise. MarkLogic 5 defines Big Data by empowering organizations to build Big Data applications that make information actionable. With MarkLogic 5, organizations get smarter answers faster by analyzing structured, unstructured, and semi-structured data in the same application. This allows a complete view of the health of the enterprise. Key features include the MarkLogic Connector for Hadoop, which marries large-scale batch processing with the real time Big Data applications MarkLogic has been delivering for a decade. MarkLogic 5 is a visionary step forward for organizations who want to manage complex Big Data on an operational database with confidence at scale. MarkLogic 5 is available today.

“Most of the hype around Big Data has focused only on the big or on the analytics,” said Ken Bado, president and CEO, MarkLogic. “For nearly a decade, MarkLogic has been helping its customers build cost effective Big Data applications that create competitive advantage. That means going beyond big and analytics to make information actionable so organizations can create real value for their business. With MarkLogic, multi-billion dollar companies like JP Morgan Chase and LexisNexis have redefined their business models, while organizations like the U.S. Army and the FAA have the real time, mission-critical information they need to get the job done. These aren’t science projects – they’re real organizations using Big Data applications right now.”

“We believe that MarkLogic 5 is well positioned to help solve many of the Big Data challenges that are emerging in the healthcare industry today,” said Jeff Cunningham, CTO at Informatics Corporation of America. “By incorporating MarkLogic 5 into our CareAlign™ Health Information Exchange platform, we have the ability to securely aggregate, manage, share, and analyze large amounts of patient information derived from a wide variety of sources and formats. These capabilities will help doctors, hospitals, and healthcare systems across the country solve many of the care coordination and population health management challenges that exist in healthcare today.”

There is a lot of noise concerning this release and it will take some time to obtain a favorable signal/noise ratio.

You can help contribute to the signal side of that equation:

Available with MarkLogic 5, the new Express license is free for developers looking to check out MarkLogic. It is limited to use on one computer with at most 2 CPUs and can hold up to 40GB of content. It includes options that make sense on a single computer (geospatial, alerting, conversion) and does not include options intended for clusters or enterprise usage (e.g., replication).
