MarkLogic is a software company that was founded in 2001. It was acquired by the private equity firm Vector Capital in late 2020, and as of early 2023 Progress Software has announced “definitive” plans to acquire the company. In 2021 it acquired the semantic metadata management company SmartLogic and its flagship product Semaphore. MarkLogic is an international enterprise with more than 2,500 customers around the world. It has offices across the U.S., Europe, and the Asia-Pacific, and is headquartered in San Carlos, California.
Throughout its life, MarkLogic has developed and marketed the multi-model database of the same name, although it differentiates between MarkLogic Server (currently in version 11), the aforementioned database, and the MarkLogic Data Platform, a holistic data management platform built on top of said database. It also continues to develop and sell Semaphore (currently in version 5.6). Semaphore, like MarkLogic Server, is available as either a standalone product or as part of the company’s data platform.
