TigerLogic Corporation was an American internet and software development company that designed, developed, sold and supported software infrastructure products. This software was categorized into the following product lines: Yolink search enhancement technology, XML Data Management Server (XDMS), Multidimensional Data Management System (MDMS) and Rapid Application Development (RAD) software tools. [2] TigerLogic was dissolved in 2016, with its MultiValue database products sold to Rocket Software, and its Omnis products sold to UK-based OLS Holdings Ltd.



The company was originally formed as Blyth Holdings, Inc. and incorporated in the State of Delaware in August 1987, but the name was changed to Omnis Technology Corporation in September 1997. Effective December 1, 2000, the company completed the acquisition of PickAx, Inc., a Delaware corporation. Concurrent with the acquisition, the company changed the name from Pick Systems to Raining Data Corporation. On April 17, 2008, the company changed the name to TigerLogic Corporation [2] and relocated its headquarters to Portland, Oregon, in June 2015. [3]

The principal asset of PickAX was PICK Systems acquired from the estate of Richard Pick, the founder of Pick Systems. PICK Systems was incorporated in California in November 1982. [4]

Products and services

Many of the company's products are based on the Pick Universal Data Model (“Pick UDM”). The Pick UDM is a core component across the XDMS and MDMS product lines. [2]

Beginning in 2001, the company began an extensive effort to leverage the time-proven Pick UDM and core intellectual property to create the TigerLogic technology product line, which includes:

In April 2008, the company publicly released an Internet browser-based search application for beta testing.

In early 2009, the company re-designed and renamed the application to "Yolink".

In November 2010, the company announced Yolink for Safari.

TigerLogic Postano (formerly PostPost)

PostPost was launched in December 2010 and enabled users to quickly skim relevant passages of text shared by their Facebook friends and sort shared content by type. [23]

In June 2011, TigerLogic announced the release of Postano, an evolution of their former product PostPost. The Postano platform allows brands to consolidate all of their best social media and news activity from across the Web and incorporate posts seamlessly on their websites. [17]

In November 2013, TigerLogic announced the release of Postano 2.0, a significant update to the social curation, fan engagement, and visualization platform. [24] With Postano 2.0, brands can curate and publish the best content into social hubs, event displays, in-store displays, command centers, and within mobile apps.

In April 2016, TigerLogic sold Postano to Sprinklr. [25]

TigerLogic XML Data Management Server (XDMS)

TigerLogic XDMS was an enterprise native XML database management server with both data- and document-centric capabilities. The TigerLogic XDMS difference comes from its core technology: a data model that is optimal for managing and storing any kind of XML or non-XML data and its extensible XQuery Engine.

Rapid Application Development (RAD) tools

The company's RAD products support the full life cycle of software application development and are designed for rapid prototyping, development, and deployment of GUI client/server and Web applications.

The company's TigerLogic Dashboard product was a development tool to produce graphical reports of real-time business intelligence via dashboard widgets. The TigerLogic Dashboard enables developers of the D3 multidimensional database management system to select and present critical business data, that's distributed throughout the database environment, to be presented in intuitive and Web-based graphical interfaces.

Multidimensional Databases (MDMS)

The MDMS product line consists principally of the D3 database management system (“D3”), which runs on many operating systems, such as IBM AIX, Linux and Microsoft Windows. Latest release includes bundled support for both .NET and Java development environments; and support for integration with the TigerLogic XDMS product.

In addition to standard development libraries TigerLogic has just released a MVS toolkit to enable the development of web services on their D3 and Mentor (MVbase) Products. This tool kit is free to customers with a support contract.

On November 18, 2013, Rocket Software announced its acquisition of the MDMS and D3 products from TigerLogic. [26]


On February 14, 2002, the company restated financial statements downward by about $2 million to reflect accounting misapplications regarding acquisitions in 2000. [27]
