With data being created much faster than it can be indexed or archived, big data is overwhelming many organizations, most especially news organizations. MarkLogic Corporation has announced that the Press Association (PA), the UK’s leading multimedia news agency and information provider, has selected MarkLogic as the central content store, metadata repository, and syndication engine for all of its unstructured information.

Market Watch brought this news to our attention in their article, “Press Association Selects MarkLogic to Manage Big Data, Unstructured Information.” This new relationship between the Press Association and MarkLogic will not only further develop their infrastructure, but increase the level of service to their customers. The response time improvement from this endeavor will make what was a complicated task much easier, from a technical standpoint.

Indexing can improve any document management system, but it is very important to choose a product that makes your content findable – easily and with thoroughness. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C- compliant taxonomies and associated rule bases for machine assisted indexing.
