MarkLogic has been named a 2013 Computerworld Honors laureate for its role in a content repository project for a health group.
Merritt Lutz, senior advisor at Morgan Stanley, nominated MarkLogic for the award, which the McLean, Va.-based software company said it received at a June 3 ceremony in Washington, D.C.
The International Data Corp.’s yearly award program recognizes forward-looking information technology applications that encourage constructive change.
It cited MarkLogic’s collaboration with IQ Solutions to set up the XML-based database for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, a branch of the Department of Health and Human Services.
“These projects (of the 2013 class of Laureates) demonstrate how IT can advance organizations’ ability to compete, innovate, communicate and prosper,” said John Amato, Computerworld vice president and publisher.
Kevin Shelly, MarkLogic public sector vice president, has said the company’s software harnesses data and turns them into “real, usable information” that is geared toward improving outcomes for healthcare and other sectors.
For the project, Shelly said MarkLogic sought to give IQ Solutions the tools to develop the structure SAMHSA needs to deliver its content to more recipients.
