MarkLogic® 8 Evolves Database Technology to Solve Heterogeneous Data Integration Problems with the Power of Search, Semantics and Bitemporal Features All in One System

From the post:

MarkLogic Corporation, the leading Enterprise NoSQL database platform provider, today announced the availability of MarkLogic® Version 8 Early Access Edition. MarkLogic 8 brings together advanced search, semantics, bitemporal and native JavaScript support into one powerful, agile and trusted database platform. Companies can now:

  • Get better answers faster through integrated search and query of all of their data, metadata, and relationships, regardless of the data type or source;
  • Lower costs and increase agility by easily integrating heterogeneous data, including relational, unstructured, and richly structured data, across silos and at massive scale;
  • Rapidly build production-ready applications in weeks versus months or years to address the needs of the business or organization.

For enterprise customers who value agility but can’t compromise on resiliency, MarkLogic software is the only database platform that integrates Google-like search with rich query and semantics into an intelligent and extensible data layer that works equally well in a data center or in the cloud. Unlike other NoSQL solutions, MarkLogic provides ACID transactions, HA, DR, and other hardened features that enterprises require, along with the scalability and agility they need to accelerate their business.

“As more complex data, much of it semi-structured, becomes increasingly important to businesses’ daily operations, enterprises are realizing that they must look beyond relational databases to help them understand, integrate, and manage all of their data, deriving maximum value in a simple, yet sophisticated manner,” said Carl Olofson, research vice president at IDC. “MarkLogic has a history of bringing advanced data management technology to market and many of their customers and partners are accustomed to managing complex data in an agile manner. As a result, they have a more mature and creative view of how to manage and use data than do mainstream database users. MarkLogic 8 offers some very advanced tools and capabilities, which could expand the market’s definition of enterprise database technology.”

I’m not in the early release program but if you are, heads up!

By “semantics,” MarkLogic means RDF triples and the ability to query those triples with text, values, etc.

Since we can all see triples, text and values with different semantics, your semantic mileage with MarkLogic may vary greatly.
