New Generation Data Warehouse

New Generation Data Warehouse Solutions

Process all data types with cloud-like scalability, reduce your time to value and your ongoing costs – without sacrificing data governance

For decades, enterprises have relied on an Enterprise Data Warehouse model as the foundation for cross-line-of-business decision support. These costly multi-year development initiatives have netted results that often fall well short of expectations. In today’s Big Data world, organizations need new approaches – to deliver results more quickly, across a wider set of data assets.

MarkLogic delivers heterogeneous data integration and management, securely, with consistency – and does it at scale – to support both operational and analytic applications on the same platform. As the only Enterprise NoSQL database platform, MarkLogic combines the agility of NoSQL platform flexibility with powerful built-in search and semantics – and trusted enterprise-grade reliability, data integrity, and security.

Operational Data Warehouse (ODW)

The ODW provides organizations with a single source of truth, scales to hundreds of nodes, and supports mixed workloads in a fully ACID-compliant implementation. Like other data warehouses, the ODW integrates data from operational systems for purposes of analytics. But, with a MarkLogic ODW, enterprises can:

  • Handle structured, unstructured, and semantic data in a single platform
  • Refresh the data store based on changing events – in real time
  • Support user-driven data enrichment, letting business analysts “talk back” to the data warehouse

Gartner gives MarkLogic the highest score for Operational Data Warehouse, reflecting 1 of the 4 use cases in its Critical Capabilities for Data Warehouse Database Management Systems* report.

Logical Data Warehouse (LDW)

A term first coined by Gartner years ago – and still evolving – the LDW is an umbrella architecture strategy designed to address the shortcomings of traditional Enterprise Data Warehouses. The LDW architecture includes:

  • A repository to support data consolidation
  • Virtualization capabilities to support federation of queries across data silos
  • Distributed batch processing, e.g. to include use of Hadoop

MarkLogic expands upon the vision of the LDW, providing all LDW capabilities in a single technology stack – handling a variety of data types at massive scale in mission-critical environments. With MarkLogic, enterprises get fewer moving parts and quicker time-to-value – delivering results in weeks instead of years.
