MarkLogic is keen on signing up scientific, technical and medical publishers as clients by aiming to tap into their mindsets and approaches to business.
The company also seeks to understand the processes, priorities and missions of those nonprofit enterprises, James Wonder, technical manager at MarkLogic, said in a company blog post published July 25.
“Once we have earned the right to be regarded as their trusted advisor then we can show how a number of the issues they are facing can actually be seen to be opportunities to better achieve their mission,“ Wonder said.
One issue Wonder identified is open access, where publishers provide PDF image versions for free and pursue opportunities for add-ons and supplemental content such as references, non-image version or annotations for a fee.
Wonder suggested MarkLogic's Enterprise NoSQL database, which is intended to function as a content repository with search features and an application server.
“They can choose which of these capabilities they want to charge for so it gives them control over their content and its usage,“ he added.
