These awards were presented by MarkLogic’s CEO at a ceremony held today at the company’s fifth annual MarkLogic User Conference. The MarkLogic Innovation Awards recognize customers that have demonstrated unique leadership in their use of information access and delivery technologies to build cutting-edge solutions. The 2009 winning organizations include:
Berico Technologies – Berico started working with MarkLogic last year on an information fusion project for the U.S. Government. Berico has combined multiple sources of information into a single MarkLogic repository. This has allowed the company to streamline their customer’s technology infrastructure to quickly deploy new capabilities, which play a key role in helping satisfy the needs of their important mission.
Booz Allen Hamilton – Booz Allen has been working closely with MarkLogic for the last two years. After the release of MarkLogic Server 4.0 in 2008, Booz Allen quickly adopted the new alerting features to manage time-critical information. This capability provides users with fast access to information, allowing them to make quick decisions and take immediate action. MarkLogic recognizes Booz Allen for its technical vision in finding new and innovative ways of providing solutions to their U.S. Government customers.
Catalyst – Catalyst is using MarkLogic Server as the platform for its next generation release of Catalyst CR, one of the fastest and most scalable e-discovery solutions on the market.

JetBlue Airways – JetBlue has implemented a dynamic corporate publications system called BlueGuru, which powers the airline’s corporate safety and compliance initiatives. As part of JetBlue University, the company’s consolidated learning department, BlueGuru is a vital application. It repackages and delivers critical information to pilots, crews, and administrative personnel charged with maintaining operational compliance in the field.
