SAN CARLOS, Calif. — October 28, 2013 — MarkLogic Corporation today announced that the company is positioned the furthest in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems* as a Niche Player. MarkLogic has been positioned for its ability to execute and is the only Enterprise NoSQL database vendor featured in the report that integrates search and application services. According to Gartner, “the operational DBMS market (formerly OLTP) is evolving dramatically, with new, innovative entrants and incumbents supporting the growing use of unstructured data and NoSQL DBMS engines.”
“Enterprise customers have discovered that the relational databases they have relied on for years are not flexible nor agile enough to manage complex and varied data formats that are required for today’s mission-critical applications. They also recognize that they cannot lower their standards for enterprise capabilities like transactional consistency, security, recovery, high availability and alerting,” said Gary Bloom, president and CEO of MarkLogic. “I am pleased that MarkLogic is included in this year’s Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems – and that our ability to execute is recognized. The same held true when we were recognized in the 2013 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Search**. We are the only company to have the same product featured on both reports, which we believe validates our innovative approach of providing an integrated search and database platform and the value we bring to customers who are looking to build today’s information applications.”
MarkLogic® is the only schema-agnostic Enterprise NoSQL database that integrates semantics, search and application services with the enterprise features customers require for production applications. This combination helps enterprises make better-informed decisions and create robust, scalable applications to drive revenue, streamline operations, manage risk and make the world safer. MarkLogic features ACID transactions, horizontal scaling, real-time indexing, high availability, disaster recovery, and government-grade security.
