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].

The principal asset of PickAX is PICK Systems acquired from the estate of Richard Pick, the founder of Pick Systems. PICK Systems was incorporated in California in November 1982[3]

Products and services

Many of the company’s products are based on the Pick Universal Data Model (“Pick UDM”), which the company created, and are capable of handling data from many sources. 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:

  • An Internet browser-based search application called "yolink" designed to enhance the search experience and productivity of any Web user. Previously called Chunkit!
  • An enterprise class XML Database Management Server for the emerging XML market to address the growing need for managing and querying native XML data and the ability to handle structured and unstructured data[2].

TigerLogic Yolink

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

In early 2009, the company re-designed and renamed the application to "yolink" (http://www.yolink.com)

TigerLogic says: "The perfect search add-on. Transform your favorite search engine into an information powerhouse. Yolink searches within the pages of your engine's results to find your search terms in context. Go beyond the links. Search Web pages and discover information conventional search tools may have never revealed. In addition to mining content on a webpage, yolink will mine all of the links on that page for information relevant to your search. Yolink highlights information in the context of its original Web page and on the right side of your browser. Eliminating the need to bounce between multiple windows. Share your findings effortlessly by clicking on the save and share link. An email message containing your valuable information and the original Web page address is instantly created and ready to send, or save in folders for future use. Go beyond conventional search and find commands. Yolink allows you to search lengthy reference manuals, PDFs, legal documents, contracts, and news sites quickly and effortlessly. Yolink is especially helpful with a multi-word search, because it can extract all of the relevant content surrounding any of your search terms and display it all at once." -Download.cnet.com
