SAN CARLOS, Calif. and London — August 4, 2010 — MarkLogic Corporation, a leading provider of information infrastructure software, announced today that it has signed a value added reseller (VAR) agreement with Koios Group, a leading consultant in the defense and intelligence markets in the UK. This strategic partnership brings together two highly innovative companies that have deep experience working with defense and intelligence agencies in the UK and US.
Koios’ domain knowledge coupled with MarkLogic’s leading-edge technology for building and deploying powerful information applications will allow agencies to improve knowledge management, information sharing, and collaboration. This partnership provides a scalable infrastructure for joint customers to quickly develop new information applications to analyze vast amounts of content and support missions with real-time data delivery. The results for agencies will be lower costs, greater user involvement, and more successful defense and intelligence missions.
“Defense and intelligence agencies are finding it more difficult to sift through the growing volume of data spread across a variety of disparate sources to find the information they need,” said Mark Tice, executive vice president, worldwide sales, MarkLogic Corporation. “We’ve had considerable success in the US building applications for federal agencies that deliver actionable intelligence and relevant situational information. Koios is a recognized leader in information management and coherence consulting in the UK and we look forward to working with them to ensure customer success.”
“We’ve been very impressed with MarkLogic’s track record with US national security customers. MarkLogic Server is truly an industry game-changer and we think agencies in the UK can benefit immensely from this innovative technology,” said Alan Carroll, business development director, Koios Group. “To us, MarkLogic brings a genuinely new capability in the exploitation of information across the enterprise. Unique in its capabilities to store, manage, exchange, and deliver information, MarkLogic Server is the only solution capable of meeting the information analysis and interoperability requirements of government agencies.”
