Publish 50% Faster with MarkLogic – Powered RSuite CMS


I’m Lisa Bos, and I am a Co-Founder of RSI
Content Solutions. We’re the makers of RSuite CMS, a content management system built on
top of MarkLogic, and I run our product team. Publishers need to deliver more than they
ever have in the past. They need to do it faster, they need to reuse content in ways
that simply have not been historically possible. One of RSuite’s greatest strengths is enabling
the discovery and reuse of content, not only at a document level, but at a very deep, granular
level. That’s something that MarkLogic’s native XML support helps to enable. What RSuite
is almost always being asked to do for our new customers is to help them move more quickly. So it was MarkLogic that first inspired RSI
to create a content management system, because we had been a systems integrator and consultant
providing advice to publishers about what CMS they might use, and we were frustrated.
We weren’t happy with any of the solutions out there. When we built RSuite on top of
MarkLogic, it was because we knew that there was a hole in the marketplace for a solution
that was built on top of native XML. And now as time goes by, not only XML of course, but
also a triplestore and all of the other kinds of content services that MarkLogic can add. And as a partner, every now and then we step
back and say, well, maybe we should support some other databases. Sometimes we have customers
or prospects who are curious about other databases, but it’s never even gotten off the ground
past the 5-minute discussion stage because there’s really no other alternative that
provides the same level of enterprise confidence, scalability, as well as the rapidly growing,
really great feature set that MarkLogic provides, and really the vision that MarkLogic provides
in terms of the combined ways of modeling content that our customers need. The publishing market has of course just continued
to move and be as unpredictable as possible, I think. It’s almost like it’s trying
hard to be unpredictable over the last 10 or 15 years. MarkLogic and RSuite of course
have continued to evolve alongside of that, as has our partnership. There have been themes
throughout that time of ongoing openness. They’ve always been terrific about bringing
us leads and vice versa, about sharing their insights of both the publishing market and
other markets as they’ve moved beyond, and as we’ve started to have some customers
in other markets as well. Because MarkLogic is always ahead of the curve, we’ve been
able to stay ahead of the curve as well. As soon as MarkLogic has a new feature that is
important to our customers, it becomes available to them. As the foundation of RSuite, MarkLogic’s
there for them, too.
