SAN CARLOS, Calif. — July 27, 2011 — The information explosion is impacting organizations of all shapes and sizes regardless of business type or industry.

In the webinar, Donald Feinberg, vice president and distinguished analyst, Gartner Research, explains how extreme information is more than just a storage problem and why it’s about getting to the right information for instantaneous results. Bill Veiga, vice president of solutions marketing, MarkLogic, then discusses how MarkLogic can solve unstructured information problems by allowing your company to take control of Big Data and put it to use in ways you may have never imagined.
“If you took a snapshot of the information that was being processed 30 years ago and a snapshot of the information that needs to be processed today, you’d have two very different pictures,” said Joe Dalton, CMO, MarkLogic. “Today’s information is in a variety of formats, it’s more complex, and it’s coming from a multitude of sources inside and outside of the enterprise. MarkLogic’s fundamental design decisions were based on managing Big Data and doing it at internet scale. MarkLogic was Big Data before anyone knew that the problem they had was a Big Data problem.”
