What We Build

MarkLogic Data Hub For Simplified Data Integration

MarkLogic provides a unified enterprise-grade semantic data platform that delivers a faster, trusted way to unlock value from complex data. Our visionary customers use our platform to achieve data agility, eliminating data silos with deeply integrated data coupled with everything known about it. ​

The MarkLogic platform removes friction from any aspect of working with any information at any scale for any purpose. Organizations use our platform to enable informed search, contextual applications, grounded data for analytics, facts-based intelligence, and agile governance and infosec. ​

The MarkLogic Story

MarkLogic corporation was founded in 2001 with the vision to create a database that was searchable so that organizations could integrate, store, manage, and search their own data regardless of format, schema or type.​

MarkLogic quickly gained prominence as large enterprises faced the challenges of integrating large volumes and varieties of data. But, those large enterprises also needed enterprise features. For that reason, MarkLogic’s early product releases were designed with features such as ACID transactions and granular security.

In 2013, MarkLogic added graph database capabilities to MarkLogic Server, and formed a cooperative partnership with Smartlogic. Smartlogic had launched Semaphore, the world’s first semantic metadata management platform, in 2006. Following many years of successful partnership, MarkLogic acquired Smartlogic in 2021 to create the first semantic data platform, with strong security, integration, and scale.​

As the company has grown, one thing never changed—the vision is still to enable organizations to get more value from their data faster. By executing on this vision, the company has established itself as the best platform for solving complex data challenges.


The foundational addition of Semaphore with MarkLogic creates another first – the semantic data platform.​

Embedded Machine learning takes center stage with MarkLogic 10, putting it at the core of the database to make key functions smarter and more automatic.


Data Hub Service launches as MarkLogic’s first cloud service, giving customers a fully managed MarkLogic Data Hub with on-demand capacity and auto-scaling.

MarkLogic 9 debuts with advanced security features, further establishing MarkLogic as the most secure NoSQL database in the market. MarkLogic University users consume over 14,000 On-Demand video tutorials, and attend almost 7,000 training days. Soon, we’ll rival SNL for content binging!


The first release of MarkLogic Data Hub goes live, a software interface that runs on top of MarkLogic Server and includes a set of tools and libraries to ingest data from multiple sources, harmonize that data, master it, and then search and analyze it.

In January, which ends the previous fiscal year, we surpass $100 Million in revenue (please read aloud in your best Dr. Evil voice). Also, we release MarkLogic 8, adding support for JSON and JavaScript – making MarkLogic easier than ever to use.


The release of MarkLogic 7 adds semantic capabilities – i.e. the ability to store graph data as RDF Triples – helping define the meaning of relationships in the data (but sadly, not between you and your significant other).

MarkLogic opens its first Asia-Pacific office in Tokyo, and goes live with BBC Sport for the 2012 Summer Olympics. We give ourselves a Perfect 10.​


MarkLogic 4 reaches two significant milestones: becoming Common Criteria Certified (an international standard for computer security), and our first cloud customer goes live on AWS. Our head has always been in the clouds.

We establish our first European office in the heart of London and move our Headquarters to its current location in San Carlos, CA – along the 101 corridor through the heart of the Silicon Valley.


MarkLogic is granted the initial patents for essential components of our database. Way back when, we knew where the future of data was headed.

Cerisent officially becomes known as MarkLogic, releases Version 1 of the first NoSQL database, and wins its first customer, Elsevier. We were busy bees.

2001 – May 18

Christopher Lindblad founds company as Cerisent. Also on this date in 1969, another significant takeoff took place: NASA launched Apollo 10. Coincidence? We think not.
