The following is from the event write-up

With mission critical big data, every second and bit of data counts. Distilling value from new and expanding data sources is a priority for government agencies. Everything from video, geospatial information, web, text, social media, healthcare provider profiles, credentials, patient claims and images to complex sensor data, biometrics and ISR must be captured and analyzed in real-time to most effectively fulfill each agency’s mission. Organizations can now leverage information in real-time, achieve mission success, and reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) of information applications with MarkLogic’s Enterprise NoSQL platform.

Earlier this year the White House launched the “Big Data Research and Development Initiative” to find new and innovative ways to manage Big Data. Join MarkLogic on November 14 at the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC and hear from your peers about some these Big Data challenges and how to solve them. This one-day event features prominent government and industry experts, real world case studies, and interactive discussions on how to make Big Data work for you and your organization – turning undiscovered, valuable information into actionable intelligence and real-time insight.

Attend our Government Summit to gain insight and transform your Big Data challenges

  • Facilitate information sharing across government enterprises and to the public with real-time data capture and analytics
  • Hear how your peers are implementing innovative Big Data Solutions
  • Learn how MarkLogic complements and enhances your investment in Hadoop
