NTT DATA, a global IT-services provider headquartered in Tokyo, has made a strategic capital investment in enterprise NoSQL database provider, MarkLogic Corp. The companies say they will also be expanding their existing strategic business alliance to develop new go-to-market strategies with emphasis on joint customer development in Europe, North America, South America and Japan.
The terms of the strategic investment in MarkLogic, which closed on May 31, 2017, were not disclosed.
Since becoming partners in 2012, NTT DATA and MarkLogic say they have worked together to target companies in Japan dealing with large-scale data integration challenges due to the rise of big data and disparate data systems within their organizations, and they are now experiencing growing market opportunity abroad for their joint solutions in key vertical segments including financial services, healthcare, government/public sector, and manufacturing.
According to MarkLogic, its database platform solves a critical challenge for organizations by helping them break down data silos that can emerge within their organizations. By using a non-relational, NoSQL database technology like MarkLogic, organizations can gain a 360-degree view of their data by reducing data silos through the use of a more agile and flexible database that is designed for change, scale, heterogeneous data, and for running mission-critical applications.
As a provider of IT services and solutions, NTT DATA helps organizations maximize their investments and ROI from MarkLogic’s NoSQL databases. The companies say the joint go-to-market strategy is designed to help customers better understand the generational shift taking place across the database industry, and how it can be used as a competitive advantage.
