MarkLogic in Defense & Intelligence – Use Case #1: Real-time Search and Data Enrichment

Our customers tell us, “I have to go through a huge dump of electronic documents. I need to find relationships, and identify topics, meetings, people, and places.”

Here’s how MarkLogic can help. MarkLogic combines an Enterprise NoSQL database with an advanced search engine within a single package. This allows data to be loaded into the system as-is, where it is fully indexed and ready for searching – with no advance data modelling or schema design required. As data flows in to the database, entities can be identified and information enriched – either automatically or via user-controlled editing. A place name, for example, could be enriched with coordinate information. This makes the information more easily searchable, accessible, and valuable for analysis. Data can be filtered interactively, in real time, including by drawing an area on a map to limit the results by location. Once entities are found, they can be used to explore the data and find links between different documents. A wide range of binary documents can be handled by MarkLogic out of the box.
