Warrior Gateway Receives Prestigious Honor for Providing Digital Access to Returning Troops and Veterans
MarkLogic Corporation, the company powering mission-critical Big Data Applications around the world, today congratulates Warrior Gateway for being named a 2012 Computerworld Honors Laureate. IDG’s Computerworld Honors Program recognizes visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic, and educational change. Warrior Gateway is a non-profit organization whose mission is to connect individuals in the military, veterans, and their families with programs, resources, and other non-profit organizations.
“Warrior Gateway is extremely grateful to be chosen as a 2012 Computerworld Honors Laureate. This recognition only furthers our mission to help our veterans and their families,” said Devin B. Holmes, CEO, Warrior Gateway. “A big part of our nomination discussed how confusing it is for service members and veterans to find resources today. Too many non-profits are ‘competing to help’. That’s why Warrior Gateway built the G.I. Network, a national information exchange which will connect veterans and their families with more than 220,000 government and non-profit organizations. With a public launch scheduled for Spring 2012, the G.I. Network can be added onto any website for free by simply integrating the powerful search engine to allow users to find and connect to any resource in the G.I. Network.”
“Congratulations to Warrior Gateway for this tremendous honor,” said Randall Jackson, vice president, MarkLogic Public Sector. “The Warrior Gateway team works tirelessly, and the G.I. Network is their most powerful idea yet. Our customers often talk about the importance of a first-to-information advantage, and nowhere is that more critical than in helping troops, veterans, and their families get the resources they need and deserve. MarkLogic is proud to work with Warrior Gateway as the operational database and search technology powering this critical resource.”
