MarkLogic Server gives customers the ability to build extraordinary content applications,” said Tracy Eiler, vice president of marketing, MarkLogic. “In the ‘Best Corporate Blog’ category, it is great to see our CEO Dave Kellogg’s blog be recognized. His natural intellectual curiosity and provocative point of view, we believe, generates healthy debate in the industry.”
