MarkLogic has received the U.S. Government’s stamp of approval. MarkLogic Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) Integration Backbone (DIB) Metadata Catalog v2 is conformant with the DIB 2.0 service specifications. Successful completion of conformance testing means that MarkLogic is a suitable alternative to the current relational database management system (RDBMS) DCGS implementation.

Sys-Con Media brought this news to our attention in their article, “MarkLogic Passes U.S. Government DCGS Conformance Test.” That is a mouthful but what it means is that a whole bunch of new opportunities just opened up for them.

Conformance testing is the process of assessing the compliance of a product to a defined set of specifications or standards. The successful completion of conformance testing significantly enhances interoperability and information sharing possibilities across the DCGS and DI2E communities.
