Why MarkLogic?

With MarkLogic, Aetna was able to deliver an entire line of business in just nine months.

“We need real-time batch integration, real-time data search, data decoupling, re-use, agile, ACID compliant, and consistent data access,” said Director of Architecture Mike Fillion. “If we had tried to do that project on a relational database, it would have failed.”

Aetna can search data in real-time, develop it quickly for speed-to-market, and achieve good response times and agility with governance requirements for member and provider data. Aetna also semantically enriches provider data with conformance.

Reduced Costs

Data conformance can be much easier. With MarkLogic, source data costs and the amount of hardware, software, and caching is minimized. Accessing data from applications is easy and affordable to store.

Full Auditability

With MarkLogic, full data lineage and traceability back to raw data is very easy to accomplish.
