2017 EMEA Partner Excellence Award Winners

The Partner Excellence Award winners for 2017 were announced at our Partner Summit in London last month, and we want to congratulate them on their achievements and thank them for all their hard work.

We wouldn’t be where we are today without our partners around the world, and we love working with them to solve complex customer challenges.

Partner Excellence Awards were given in two categories: Services and Technology.


Partner Excellence in Services: Capgemini NL

Capgemini NL received the Partner Excellence Award in Services for demonstrating outstanding vision and drive to find new ways to solve the pressing needs of financial institutions. Strict regulations have banks scrambling to comply and the Capgemini team recognized that relational technologies and ETL were both going to bog down the process — and threaten the ability for banks to meet regulatory deadlines.

According to Capgemini VP Edwin Steenvoorden, “Financial Services institutions are under high pressure to act on internal trends such as cost savings, regulatory demands and FinTech as well as external trends such as customer empowerment, new entrants and service democratization. They then need to combine these with the usage of new types of data such as social unstructured, IoT, video, etc. This calls for a database platform where institutions can access their data fast and integrated.”

Last December, MarkLogic and Capgemini signed an official partnership for the Benelux region. Since then, many financial institutions in German, French and Australian territories have expressed interest in transforming their organizations.

Why MarkLogic Will Lead the Next-Generation of Database Technology – More than once, MarkLogic has been sarcastically described as the “adult” at the venture capital-fed NoSQL party, a presence akin to a chaperone at a high school dance. I couldn’t agree more, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Having an “adult” serving enterprise-class companies with enterprise-class database technology and services is an important advantage for MarkLogic as we enable many of the world’s largest companies and governments to solve their modern data challenges.

MarkLogic and Capgemini in the Netherlands Close Partnership – MarkLogic, the market leader in the area of NoSQL-databases for the enterprise has signed a partnership with Capgemini Netherlands B.V. part of the Capgemini Group, a global leader in consulting, technology and outsourcing services.
