SAN CARLOS, Calif. — November 22, 2010 — MarkLogic Corporation, the company revolutionizing the way organizations leverage unstructured information, today announced it has been named for a sixth year in a row to the EContent 100 list of companies that matter most in the digital content industry. The EContent 100 recognizes companies and products that demonstrate continued leadership in the content industry – and whose innovation foreshadows all that digital content has to offer.
“The need to leverage tools to effectively maximize the value of digital content has never been greater,” said Michelle Manafy, editor-in-chief, EContent. “Through our annual 100 list, we aim to honor companies and products that demonstrate continued leadership in the industry; this year, our judging team was tougher than ever before. Few incumbents were kept on through mindshare and momentum alone, and every company was held up to scrutiny in terms of innovation and meeting customer needs. We recognized MarkLogic for its hard work, customer focus, and continued responsiveness to the changing digital content landscape.”
This year, the nominated entries were reviewed by ten EC100 judges that included fellow Information Today, Inc. editors, EContent magazine contributing editors, and other experts in the digital content industry. The media industry is experiencing a dynamic digital transformation and MarkLogic technology is at the forefront of helping these organizations on the journey. MarkLogic enables publishers to create innovative new tools and products to streamline workflows, aggregate content, syndicate and deliver content, as well as power mobile and digital products.
“We couldn’t be more pleased that EContent is recognizing us for a sixth consecutive year – but so many organizations are just now waking up to the fact that they need a plan to manage the growing amount of unstructured information that is out there today,” said Tracy Eiler, senior vice president of marketing, MarkLogic. “Estimates put the amount of unstructured information companies are now dealing with at 70 percent, but at MarkLogic, we believe it is even higher than that. And you need a specialized database to reap the immense value this type of information provides to your business. MarkLogic is unsurpassed in providing customers the platform to build revolutionary applications that are expanding the ways in which organizations share and deliver information.”
