SAN CARLOS, Calif. — September 1, 2011 — Big Data is seeping into every enterprise, stretching an organization’s ability to effectively manage, govern and store information. MarkLogic Corporation, the company revolutionizing the way organizations leverage Big Data, will host a webcast examining the nature and scope of the unstructured data challenge. The webcast, “Big Data 2.0: The Post-Relational Reality Sets In,” will feature Tom Wilson, president, Unisphere Research, and Edd Patterson, vice president of technical solutions, MarkLogic. It will take place on Thursday, September 8 at 11:00 a.m. (PT) / 2:00 p.m. (ET).
“Our research shows that most IT managers are facing significant challenges with unstructured information and Big Data,” said Wilson. “The competitive and operational advantages these vast and rapidly growing data stores represent are not yet widely understood or enabled. Companies must learn how to use their unstructured data for better decision making and competitive advantage.”
The one-hour webcast will examine the unstructured data predicament and how organizations can identify and begin exploring this emerging information asset. Unstructured data exists in the form of business documents, social and web content, as well as information generated by smart phones and email systems. Webcast attendees will learn about the key challenges organizations face as unstructured information becomes more broadly recognized as a competitive and decision-making tool. Participants also will learn how to identify and begin leveraging Big Data within their organizations.
“Unstructured data is a major driving factor in the Big Data movement,” said Ken Bado, president and CEO, MarkLogic Corporation. “This trend is changing the way organizations approach the management of data. It’s also resulting in a new set of technologies, such as MarkLogic, and business processes that address the challenges and opportunities unstructured information presents.”
The webcast, “Big Data 2.0: The Post-Relational Reality Sets In” will be held on Thursday, September 8 at 11:00 a.m. (PT) / 2:00 p.m. (ET).
