MarkLogic Transforms the Database Market with MarkLogic 9 (MESA)

At the 12th annual MarkLogic World user conference in Chicago, IL, MarkLogic launched MarkLogic 9, the latest release of the world’s best database for integrating data from silos. With new data integration, security and manageability capabilities, MarkLogic 9 enables organizations to more rapidly, easily and affordably achieve a unified, actionable 360-degree view of their data – whether in the cloud or on-premise – to build next-generation applications, drive business outcomes, mitigate risk and reduce operating costs.

The MarkLogic database platform is the next-generation alternative to the decades-old relational databases that rely on cumbersome, time-consuming ETL (extract, transform and load) tools to integrate data from silos.

“I couldn’t be more excited about MarkLogic 9. Our global customers have the most demanding applications in the world and they have played an integral role in helping us shape what is a major step forward in the way next-generation databases are used and the value they bring,” said Joe Pasqua, Executive Vice President, Products, MarkLogic. “To stay competitive in a world where data is exploding and requirements change daily, enterprises need to able to leverage their data assets quickly, efficiently, securely and in real-time. MarkLogic 9’s new cutting-edge capabilities will make their jobs easier and their results better.”

The MarkLogic 9 database provides the agility, flexibility and scalability of NoSQL, combined with enterprise-hardened features like certified security and high availability. Building on a base of advanced features such as bitemporal, semantics and cloud support, MarkLogic 9 adds new enterprise-grade features to make data integration faster and easier, data security stronger and more granular, and database management more efficient.

Key among these new capabilities are:

  • Faster, Easier Data Integration. MarkLogic 9 introduces capabilities that are unique in the database market that further facilitate and ease the integration of data from silos.
  • Entity Services allows organizations to manage messy, ever-changing data sources by allowing them to define and evolve a model and vocabulary that harmonizes real-world entities, such as customers and products, and the relationships between them.
  • Optic is a revolutionary new API that lets developers view their data as documents, graphs or rows, providing unparalleled flexibility and efficiency.
  • Industry-Leading Data Security. The new security and privacy features in MarkLogic 9 provide an unprecedented ability to leverage and share data securely and privately.
  • Advanced encryption protects data from hackers and insider threats using standards-based cryptography, advanced key management and granular separation of duties.
  • Element-Level Security goes beyond the existing document-level security to allow specific elements of a document to be hidden from particular users. The increased granularity means greater data protection.
  • Redaction eliminates the exposure of sensitive information, such as Social Security numbers, by removing specific information or replacing it with other values in order to prevent leakage of sensitive data. Most importantly, it gives enterprises the assurances they need to share data safely.
