What is a proof of Concept?

A Proof of Concept is a piece of software which is built very quickly, solely with the intention of trying to get as much done and achieved in a very short time frame to prove that an idea will fly.

The customer ends up with a living, breathing application that can be used to convince the business to progress the idea further to a fully-fledged system or application.

Proven Track Record

Our Consultants have worked on many proof of concepts for clients. We can give references of very happy clients who were very impressed on how much we managed to build in very short time frames.

Why use MarkLogic?

MarkLogic is the perfect platform to build a Proof of Concept, very quickly. It is full of enterprise features that simply work; with the right experts who know MarkLogic inside out, you can get a working prototype in an incredibly short time frame.

What isn't a proof of Concept?

Proof of Concepts are built very quickly and with great haste. Because of this, the best possible coding practices undoubtedly will not have been followed.

Proof of Concepts are designed to be thrown away. By all means use them to reference how certain problems were solved when building a production system. But "extending" a hastily put together Proof of Concept in a sequence of iterations to finally arrive at a production system is asking for trouble further down the line.

If this is the approach you wish to take in building your MarkLogic application we can help you and we can certainly build high quality solutions in a very short time frame. Please see our "Expert Programming Services" for more information.

Licence Not Needed

You don't need to buy a MarkLogic licence to build a Proof of Concept. MarkLogic is totally free for 6 months, even if you need a cluster to cope with the amount of data you think you may need.


Stakeholders notified daily about the tasks completed today and tomorrow's objectives.


We can host the solution and check the code into a source repository you have access to.


You see the Application being built in real-time, giving opportunity for instance feedback.


Finally deliver, present and demo the Proof of Concept to Stake Holders.
