Gary Bloom, MarkLogic president and CEO, recently spoke about the services his firm provides for company’s looking to take advantage of unstructured data, according to a Silicon Angle article.
Maria Deutscher writes that MarkLogic was founded in 2001, has grown into the largest big data vendor based on revenue and currently holds a 13 percent market share.
Bloom told theCube at the Oracle OpenWorld 2013 conference that MarkLogic’s software is used by 350 organizations which include the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services, financial services providers and the Intelligence Community.
Bloom added that Marklogic founder Christopher Linblad was a search expert when he started the company and noticed that firms at the time were unable to search the loads of data they possessed.
Linblad set about building a search engine and realized that a new type of storage was needed for the business data search process.
According to the article, MarkLogic’s offering is schemeless, which means input doesn’t have to adhere to a specific structure in order to be processed.
