Press Release Klopotek to Develop Next Generation Publishing Applications with MarkLogic Enterprise NoSQL Database
Klopotek, the leading provider of software solutions for the publishing industry, and MarkLogic Corporation today announced that they are collaborating to develop future Klopotek publishing industry applications using MarkLogic® software. The first application, slated for general availability in Q1 2015, is a web-based Rights, Licenses and Permissions Manager. Klopotek will demonstrate a prototype of this application at Frankfurt Book Fair, 8th - 12th October 2014, Hall 4 stand E9.
Klopotek has traditionally built applications using a relational database but is now developing upcoming applications using MarkLogic' s Enterprise NoSQL database platform. The key factors influencing Klopotek' s decision were MarkLogic' s ability to support multiple, complex data types including contracts, asset metadata and rights and usage data. Other important attributes are MarkLogic' s ACID compliance - ensuring the integrity of data - and support for semantics to better model relationships between assets, products and suppliers.
Klopotek customer De Gruyter already uses MarkLogic software. Dr. Sven Fund, CEO of De Gruyter and author of the article Integrated Publishing, commented, " As publishers and information providers look to leverage their customer data and product information to drive innovation, we and many other influential organizations in the publishing industry, value a database system that can integrate, manage and search the many diverse sets of data that drive our business. It seems to me that Klopotek realizes that traditional technologies cannot support today' s heterogeneous data that companies require to make them competitive and it has therefore taken this step."
