SAN CARLOS, Calif. — June 29, 2010 — MarkLogic Corporation, a leading provider of information infrastructure software, today announced that it has been named to Red Herring’s North America 100 list, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures in North America.
“We are pleased to be named to the Red Herring 100 as we know the competition to be on the list is fierce and that only the best of the best make it,” said Tracy Eiler, senior vice president of marketing, MarkLogic Corporation. “MarkLogic is a next-generation database and will continue to grow because of the explosion of unstructured data in our world today. The phones are ringing at MarkLogic as an increasing number of customers quickly realize that they need to manage information more effectively and not be locked in to only modeling data relationally.

The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of thousands from across North America.

Red Herring’s annual lists of top private companies are an important part of the company’s tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs. Past winners such as Google, eBay, and Skype were spotted in their early days by Red Herring editors and touted as leaders that would change the way we live and work.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO, Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe MarkLogic embodies the vision, drive, and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. MarkLogic should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
