MarkLogic is a database with a search engine built-in to its core, providing a single platform to load data from silos and search and query across all of that data. MarkLogic uses an “Ask Anything” Universal Index that indexes data as soon as it is loaded so you can immediately begin asking questions of your data. There are also additional indexes that can be toggled on and off based on the user’s needs.
Built-in search is extremely useful for data integration. It enables you to immediately search and discover any new data loaded into MarkLogic, and also keep track of your data as you harmonize it.
Built-in search is also very useful for application development. You can leverage it when building both transactional and analytical applications that require powerful queries to be run efficiently, and when you want to build Google-like search features into an app.
