At the start of this project, we called that middle box (the MarkLogic piece) the Conversion Hub because we’re Oracle-based and we wanted to create a place where people could look at the data before it get ported back over to Oracle. In that process we got confidence with MarkLogic and said, ‘You know what? We’re grooming this data so let’s stand it up here and let’s write our application around that’ and that became the sales to finance hub with MarkLogic.”
Sony is using MarkLogic at the heart of a globally integrated workflow to simplify and speed the complex process of managing TV program distribution and sales. MarkLogic acts as an Operational Data Hub (ODH) to manage intricate contractual arrangements. The ODH solution also makes it easy for Sony’s finance team to access and transact with data to drive Sony’s licensing revenue.
