How it Works » Platform

Tamarack Software's platform establishes and maintains the relationship between a product and its resources. Resources, described by RDF and organized ontologically via OWL, are placed in a graph database. A graph database applies graph theory to the storage of information about relationships between entries. Using a graph to model the relationships between your product, sub-components, and resources is a natural fit. It also avoids scale and performance problems such as recursive joins, which can plague the use of relational databases in similar situations. Graphs also make it easy to merge data from different domains.

Our platform is built on standards and technology that are reliable and scalable to support information growth in the future. Everything we develop, and every tool we use, is designed to operate at the scale of the World Wide Web.

Portions of ourplatform were built using the outstanding tools and products from Franz Inc.
