SAN CARLOS, Calif. – April 2, 2009 – MarkLogic Corporation, a leading provider of infrastructure software for information applications, today announced that Norman Walsh, principal technologist, will present a session entitled “Targeting Data to the Place it Makes Sense Now Leveraging Geospatial Capabilities” at the Buying & Selling eContent 2009 conference, to be held April 5-7, 2009 at the Marriott’s Camelback Inn & Resort in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Consumers are becoming untethered to their home/work PCs and are able to access the internet with powerful mobile devices like the 3G iPhone. This session will explore the ways in which the physical location of where people consume content represents limitless possibilities for today’s publishers to diversify their product offerings. By adding digital content assets with geospatial information, publishers now have the ability to dynamically deliver focused content and highly-targeted advertising to consumers in geographic context. Walsh will explain how using rapid query and analytics capabilities makes it possible for publishers to better exploit geospatially tagged content in order to uncover new sources of revenue.
The Buying & Selling eContent 2009 Conference is a dynamic and informative three day conference which will cover various aspects of content strategies. This conference provides the opportunity to explore many topics while networking with other business leaders within the industry. More than 40 executives will be presenting their knowledge of diverse topics including dynamic publishing, social collaboration solutions, geospatial capabilities, content licensing, and the future of copyright.
