SAN CARLOS, Calif. — June 2, 2010 — MarkLogic Corporation, a leading provider of information infrastructure software, today announced that the Warrior Gateway, a new portal that connects the military community with needed resources, relies on MarkLogic to help veterans find services to smoothly transition back to civilian life.
The Warrior Gateway serves as a trusted and reliable resource for the military community. The portal helps users quickly locate service organizations that satisfy their needs, identify academic programs they are interested in, and easily find employers seeking their valuable skills. Business Executives for National Security (BENS), a coalition of non-profit, public, and corporate partners is collaborating to build and expand the Warrior Gateway.
With the site, veterans no longer have to pore through piles of papers or long alphabetized databases. The Warrior Gateway Directory enables users to search, map and rate services, and understand the value proposition of each service. More recently, the Job Search aggregator was added to allow veterans and their families to search current job openings more effectively. Future capabilities include:
“With new service organizations and programs appearing daily, wading through the options can be overwhelming,” said Devin B. Holmes, executive director, the Warrior Gateway. “The Warrior Gateway brings this information together in a user friendly format, providing veterans and their families with one place to connect with the resources they seek.”
As the foundational technology for the Warrior Gateway, MarkLogic Server provides a platform to bring together information from a diverse range of resources and make it available through a single website. The Warrior Gateway was initially launched on March 15, 2010. Through partnerships with nationwide public, private, and non-profit organizations, the team plans to expand from its current listing of more than 17,000 service providers and programs in the coming months.
“We are pleased to provide the information infrastructure that enables the Warrior Gateway to connect America’s veterans with valuable services and resources,” said Tracy Eiler, vice president of marketing, MarkLogic Corporation. “The Warrior Gateway is an important project that matches our veterans, service men and women, and their loved ones with the help they need to make a smooth transition to civilian life.”
