MarkLogic Corporation (formerly Cerisent), or MarkLogic is an American software business that develops and provides an enterprise NoSQL database, MarkLogic. MarkLogic is a document-oriented database platform that has a schema-agnostic data model for storing and managing XML, JSON, RDF, and Geospatial data. It uses a distributed, scale-out architecture, provides ACID transactions, and maintains government-certified security.
In May 2012, Gary Bloom joined MarkLogic as Chief Executive Officer. Prior to joining Veritas Software as CEO in 2000, Bloom held several senior positions at Oracle and was widely considered the successor to Larry Ellison.
For the 2012 London Olympics, the BBC used MarkLogic to power its Olympic Data Services, an application that had to be built in 12 months. "Given the timescales, this project would not have been achievable using a SQL database, which would have pushed the design towards more complete modeling of the data." BBC broke all traffic records during the 2-week games, 2.8 Petabytes on peak day, including more than 100m video requests.

US Affordable Care Act
The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare, responsible for implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) uses MarkLogic to power its database, including the Federal Data Services Hub and parts of Federally Facilitated Marketplace.
According to the New York Times, the main contractor for ACA originally objected to using MarkLogic. "CGI officials argued that it would slow work because it was too unfamiliar. Government officials disagreed, and its configuration remains a serious problem." The Times story did not say that MarkLogic's software is bad but stated, "CGI officials argued that it would slow work because it was too unfamiliar."
