Federal CTO Chris Biow to Discuss How Optimizing Unstructured Information is Mission Critical for Government Agencies Today

SAN CARLOS, Calif. — March 2, 2011 —The data explosion is having a major impact on government agencies, making the need to select and implement the right technology to handle mission-critical, semi and unstructured information imperative. MarkLogic Corporation, the company revolutionizing the way organizations leverage unstructured information, today announced that MarkLogic Federal CTO Chris Biow will speak on a panel at the GITEC Summit in Orlando, Florida. Biow will be joined by Daniel Whorton, chief technology officer, SGT and Andrew Schain, solutions architect, NASA for a presentation on “Effectively Exploiting Semi and Unstructured Data: A Panel Discussion with Providers and Practitioners.” The panel will be moderated by Mark Walther, senior analyst, NASA Headquarters, and will be held at 10:45 a.m. on Tuesday, March 8, 2011.

Government agencies rely on MarkLogic to deliver mission success, bring projects in on-time and under budget, and gain high performance and scalability with the applications they build. During the panel session, Biow will examine the approaches government agencies are relying on today to solve challenges related to the effective exploitation of semi and unstructured data. The panel will also explore how the experience and perspective of a leading industry provider of current technologies and future trends are compared and contrasted with government employees trying to solve some of the challenges associated with exploiting semi and unstructured data.

“The massive volume of mission-critical government information that exists today in the form of unstructured data has serious implications on everything from national security to budgetary concerns,” said Biow. “Government agencies must be prepared to face this issue head on and realize the challenge in properly managing and accessing this critical information effectively can only be solved with implementing the right database technology.”
