SAN CARLOS, CA--(Marketwire - June 22, 2010) -  MarkLogic® Corporation, a leading provider of information infrastructure software, will host a webcast featuring independent research firm Forrester Research, Inc. to investigate an information challenge that enterprises are facing today -- the growing mass of semi-structured and unstructured information. The traditional RDBMS can't keep up with this information tsunami and some of the world's largest organizations are now looking for alternatives. The webcast, titled "RDBMS Alternatives: NoSQL, XML, and Other Game Changers" will be presented by Jason Hunter, principal technologist, MarkLogic, and Ken Chestnut, vice president of product marketing, MarkLogic, and will feature Noel Yuhanna, principal analyst, Forrester Research on Tuesday, June 29 at 11 a.m. (PT)/2 p.m. (ET).
