A POC revealed a 4:1 improvement across the board with MarkLogic over relational systems. Erie can load data much faster in MarkLogic than in relational databases, and improve notification and alert times. But the most notable improvement is the model change response time.
MarkLogic delivered a high-speed, open, and extensible delivery platform with cross-line integration and data mastering capabilities, as well as data governance and security. The new infrastructure utilizes agile processes and reduces application delivery times. Additionally, Erie required improved flexibility and scalability over traditional relational systems, security, support for transactions, ACID compliance, and the ability to fit new tools into the organization’s existing operational model.
