Mark Logic Government Summit 2009

Welcome
Welcome and thank you for joining us at the Mark Logic Government Summit! Transformation. Transparency. Technology driving information advantage. That is the theme of today’s conference. The presenters and attendees represent a diverse and inspiring set of government organizations. We look forward to a day of lively and educational content. We firmly believe that now is the time for information applications. Organizations have spent years mastering their data – but what about their information? The government is taking a leadership role in storing, searching, analyzing, and delivering information – no matter the format. Today is about learning how government organizations are innovating in ways never before thought possible. We have designed today’s content to be both useful and inspirational and are very pleased to have these amazing keynote speakers, who are as diverse as they are inspiring: • Martin Gross, Deputy Program Executive Officer, Global Information Grid Enterprise Services, Defense Information Systems Agency • Dr. G. Clark Smith, Executive for Programs and Technology, Office of the Program Manager, Information Sharing Environment • Mike Daconta, CTO, Accelerated Information Management, LLC This afternoon you may choose between application and technology presentations. The Applications Track features Mark Logic customers describing the information applications they have built and deployed within the government. The Technology Track offers a chance to hear how MarkLogic Server makes these innovative applications possible. We also invite you to visit the demo stations where you can talk with our engineers and see examples of government applications running on MarkLogic Server. There is ample time for networking throughout the day and we hope to catch up with you more at the closing reception. Thank you for your support and participation.

Mark Logic Government Summit 2009

general sessions: ballroom
9:35am – 10:05am Creating Sustainable Information-Sharing and Collaboration Environments – A DoD Perspective Martin Gross, Deputy Program Executive Officer, Global Information Grid Enterprise Services, Defense Information Systems Agency
Few organizations have a greater mandate than the Department of Defense to enable effective information sharing to meet mission requirements with reliable performance, security, and resiliency. Learn how DISA is managing its portfolio of programs and projects that combine to deliver net-centric enterprise information sharing services around the globe every day. Understand the challenges – from headquarters to the field – to ensuring the right information is available to decision makers when it is most critical. And take away a greater understanding of the technical, program, and acquisition considerations that are required to create and sustain effective collaboration environments.

11:00am – 11:45am Outcome-Based Information Management Mike Daconta, CTO, Accelerated Information Management, LLC
Many government organizations understand the importance of information management, but do not understand where to start their efforts and how those efforts will pay off in the long run. A few organizations even begin doing data management “stuff ” before they understand the critical factors necessary for success. Learn how to avoid the mistakes of early information management adopters by crafting an outcome-based information management program instead of an “activity-based” program. By examining real use cases from the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense and other agencies, you will learn how to craft information management outcomes; how to measure those outcomes; how to work backwards from outcomes to activities to resources in order to effectively plan your roadmap; and finally, how to focus and accelerate your information management processes for greater efficiency and efficacy in achieving business outcomes.

10:05am – 10:45am Enabling Essential Information-Sharing Dr. G. Clark Smith, Executive for Programs and Technology, Office of the Program Manager, Information Sharing Environment
There are countless opportunities (and obstacles) to designing and implementing effective information sharing solutions that involve multiple agency enterprise architectures, technology preferences, processes, cultures, not to mention the management of classified and unclassified information. Learn how the Federal Government is cooperating to streamline cross-boundary information exchange, including what has been readily accomplished, and the continuing hurdles to overcome. Learn how to begin, evaluate practical options for collaboration, develop standards for mutli-agency participation, and when to navigate away from or around resistant organizational cultures and traditional information stovepipes. Expand your knowledge about how to use mission focus and common operating rules to achieve meaningful decision-support programs.

11:45am – 12:15pm Enabling Global Information Discovery Using the NCES Enterprise Catalog Dave Lemen, Search Solutions Architect, CSC
The Net-Centric Enterprise Services (NCES) Enterprise Catalog plays an important role in making DoD information visible on the Global Information Grid. The catalog supports precision search against full-text, as well as geospatial, temporal, subject, and bibliographic metadata, and demonstrates the benefit of adopting the DoD Discovery Metadata Standard (DDMS). The deployment of a new catalog architecture based on the MarkLogic Server this year offers a case study that will be useful to program managers, information managers, and search tool developers who want to maximize the discoverability of their resources.

1:15pm – 1:55pm Building a Robust, High-Performance Ingest and Storage Framework for Rapidly Evolving Battlefield Exploitation Data Guy Filippelli, CEO, Berico
This session will explain how and why Berico is using MarkLogic to power a next-generation system to ingest, analyze, present, and alert on the rapidly-evolving nature of exploitation data in current conflict zones. The presentation will begin with the major forces that are shaping current and future military intelligence requirements and capabilities, discuss the potential for MarkLogic to reinforce key large-system government initiatives, and highlight key lessons learned on the agile road to delivering capability to the warfighter.

3:00pm – 3:40pm E-Space: A Real World Case Study of a MarkLogic Implementation Patrick J. Wall, Senior Associate, Booz Allen Hamilton
MarkLogic Server was brought in to this key DoD program to enhance existing technologies and provide additional agility in managing large volumes of XML data. In this session, we will discuss our use of MarkLogic Server and taking advantage of evolving platform features to deliver additional value for clients.

3:45pm – 4:25pm Moving from Paper to Awareness: How to Discover What You Didn’t Know About Your Historic Paper Documents John Holshey, Program Manager, ENSCO
Many organizations’ history is preserved in libraries of paper and microfiche documents. Many of these organizations are unable to mine these collections for critical information they need for today’s problems and don’t understand the relationships within the content of these historic documents. This presentation will describe a MarkLogic-based solution to maximize the value of old, hard-copy document collections utilizing deep content analysis. It will also summarize steps required and the lessons learned in transitioning paper and microfiche documents into rich, searchable content, and visualizing the results.

2:00pm – 2:40pm A Scalable XML Approach to Records Archive Metadata Betty Harvey, President, ECC, Inc.
This presentation will provide an understanding of how the MarkLogic Server will be used to store metadata related to assets ingested into the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) Electronic Records Archives (ERA) project.
