MarkLogic is a unique platform that can provide impressive, infrastructural services for XML storage and processing. We deliberately don't classify MarkLogic as a content management system (it lacks core content management features such as versioning and workflow), or as an enterprise search tool. This paper analyzes why, despite MarkLogic having strong search capabilities of its own, we don't recommend it for enterprise search -- or even consider it an enterprise search system.
