San Carlos, Calif. — May 8, 2013 — MarkLogic Corporation, the provider of the enterprise NoSQL (not only SQL) database platform, is pleased to be recognized as a 2013 Laureate by IDG’s Computerworld Honors Program. The annual award program honors visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic, and educational change. IQ Solutions, Inc., on behalf of Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), built a new XML content repository on MarkLogic that enabled the organization to better deliver information about behavioral health issues and approaches to prevention and treatment.
“Technology continues to play a pivotal role in transforming how business and society functions. For the past 25 years The Computerworld Honors Program has had the privilege of celebrating innovative IT achievements,” said John Amato, vice president and publisher, Computerworld. “Computerworld is honored to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of the 2013 class of Laureates and to share their work. These projects demonstrate how IT can advance organizations’ ability to compete, innovate, communicate and prosper.”
“SAMHSA’s mission to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America’s communities is an important effort. MarkLogic is proud to have assisted IQ Solutions in delivering an approach that expanded the organization’s ability to disseminate its valuable content,” said Kevin Shelly, vice president sales, Public Sector, MarkLogic. “MarkLogic’s ability to store, index, and search XML documents made it possible for IQ Solutions to successfully develop a structure for SAMHSA that could deliver any content to any platform.”
MarkLogic delivers a powerful and trusted enterprise-grade NoSQL database that enables organizations to turn all data into valuable and actionable information. A changing health information market and government mandates required SAMHSA to use shared platforms and focus on digital formats creating a need for a new, unique, and flexible content solution. IQ Solutions embraced a “create once, publish everywhere” philosophy for the SAMHSA solution, and leveraged MarkLogic’s technology to build a new XML content repository so that all of the organization’s content could be easily stored, searched, and shared.
“This award recognizes companies with leading edge technologies that are providing value to companies across industries and I was proud to nominate MarkLogic,” said Merritt Lutz, Senior Advisor, Morgan Stanley, and member of the Computerworld Honors Foundation Chairmen’s Committee.
The Computerworld Honors Program awards will be presented at the Gala Evening and Awards Ceremony on June 3, 2013 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
