Really MarkLogic

December 4, 2008

MarkLogic occupies an interesting market space. The company’s approach to information management appeals to publishers and other organizations wanting to convert wild content ponies into work horses. A reader alerted me to “RSuite Content Management System Based on XML Database”. You can read the full text of the story on IT.Enquirer here. Really Strategies, founded by former Reed Elsevier executives, implements “an enterprise scale publishing system” using MarkLogic’s technology. The article revealed that uses the RSuite system to move content to Apple iTunes. For me the most significant comment in the article was:

Metadata in the system can be universal layered or contextual layered, which means you can either create metadata used across all content snippets, or only metadata that’s relevant for the current publication. Searching happens on a level where XML as well as PDF content is being run through, and queries—or rather their results—can be copied into new or existing articles as a sort of live “Smart content” snippets.

If you are not familiar with MarkLogic’s system, you can get more information here. What I noted when reading this article is that unlike traditional original equipment manufacture arrangements in search and content processing, Really Strategies is quite up front about its building upon MarkLogic’s technology. I like knowing what’s under the hood of enterprise software systems.
