SAN CARLOS, Calif. — February 10, 2011 — Social media, mobile devices, and real-time interaction are having a real impact on the publishing industry. Publishers are just now starting to learn how to leverage these trends to improve the bottom line. MarkLogic Corporation, the company revolutionizing the way organizations leverage unstructured information, today announced that Jason Monberg, vice president of product management, MarkLogic, will be speaking at the O’Reilly Tools of Change Conference in New York City. Monberg’s presentation, “The New Publishing: Anywhere, Anytime, Anyhow” will be held at 11:35 a.m. ET on Wednesday, February 16, 2011.

Monberg’s session will look at how developing consumption models are driving a new breed of solutions and information platforms in the publishing industry and how publishers are taking advantage of this fundamental shift throughout the lifecycle of their content. In addition, Monberg will discuss how publishers are implementing solutions to easily mash-up content from multiple sources to create next generation products.
“Mobile devices have transformed the way people interact with each other and with content,” said Monberg. “Consumer expectations about how, when, and where they can access content has changed, and publishers need to commit to making content available wherever consumers are. As publishers embrace this change, we’ll see greater accessibility, improved real-time interaction and ultimately, better relationships with customers.”
In addition, Norman Walsh, lead engineer, MarkLogic, will be speaking on a panel titled, “STANDARDS IN FLUX: What’s Happening and What’s on the Horizon in the Publishing Standards Landscape.” The panel will discuss the changing publishing standards landscape, with a focus on the issues of accessibility and metadata. The panel will be held at 9:00 a.m. ET on Monday, February 14, 2011.
