The search functionality of this tool is one of the best features! Locating the data you need is so fast when you can enter a keyword and find the right thing within seconds.

My expectations for this database were low, but I was pleasantly surprised when I started using it. This is a great enterprise solution!

MarkLogic is a powerful database that can be used for many different purposes. Our only problem with the software is that we cannot get multiple users to access it at the same time.

Pritam D.


This is a very scaleable database with great tutorials that will help you to learn how all of the tools work.

Excellent search capabilities and security. However, the licensing cost is very expensive and this can be a difficult platform for beginners to use.

MarkLogic is a very robust system with a strong documentation network. A solid solution for web-content management.

The ability to create role-based access to documents is a major plus with this software. This licensing cost is high, but I would recommend this product for storing metadata.
