OECD Begins Digital Transformation Program Using MarkLogic Database

According to a recent press release, “MarkLogic Corporation, a leading operational and transactional Enterprise NoSQL database provider, today announced that the OECD, a 35 member country non-government organization (NGO) dedicated to promoting policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world based in Paris, France, chose MarkLogic to implement its digital transformation by developing the first application of the OECD Digital Strategy: the new OECD Network Environment (O.N.E.). Built out of the need to improve the OECD’s information sharing capabilities by offering rapid knowledge access, collaborative authoring and advanced analytical functions, MarkLogic’s database platform created O.N.E., seamlessly integrating large amounts of information from multiple data silos.”

The release goes on, “O.N.E is a key part of the Secretary General’s Digital Strategy to activate ‘21 for 21’, a set of 21 actions for consolidation and further transformation of the OECD by 2021. As part of the program, O.N.E. was developed to replace OLIS, an application that provides secure internet access to the organization’s key stakeholders on the full range of OECD committee information. O.N.E was built for country delegations, policy experts and other delegates involved in committee work as well as coordinators in capital cities.”

It adds, “The OECD uses MarkLogic to integrate structured and unstructured data, of all types, from different silos into a single central data hub. The information is enhanced to allow smart searching, thanks to improved description (metadata) and classification of data. Combined with advanced semantic features, this enhancement of the integrated search engine helps to contextualize information for members and staff, and offers rapid access to knowledge, truly collaborative editing and advanced analytical features.”
