Data virtualization solves the problem of consolidating critical data scattered across silos, providing a comprehensive, actionable view of data assets. A data virtualization solution powered by MarkLogic is an active, searchable "data layer" or "data cloud" that presents a unified view of multi-structured data across organizational silos. It provides a set of services to aid in information management, provisioning of tools, and secure information sharing. Organizations deploy MarkLogic to greatly reduce implementation time and costs associated with new information products and services, to support secure information sharing across different user communities, and to �future proof� their technical infrastructure against changes to data sources.
MarkLogic combines best-of-breed technology across database management systems, application servers, and search engines. Some key benefits of MarkLogic in a data virtualization infrastructure include improved analytics and agility, higher performance and scalability, lower total cost of ownership (TCO), and faster time to value than systems based on traditional technologies such as relational databases. The MarkLogic platform is architected to efficiently handle the varied and complex types of information found in an enterprise environment. With MarkLogic, organizations get a comprehensive, actionable view of their mission-critical data in an agile and cost effective architecture, to make better decisions faster with lower TCO.
