Antenna Software, Inc., helping enterprises to build, manage and publish mobile apps and websites that transform business, today announced that it has been named an AlwaysOn Global 250 winner. The award honors organizations that demonstrate industry leadership, game-changing approaches and innovative technologies that can reinvigorate existing markets and established players in the Global Silicon Valley.
Antenna was evaluated by AlwaysOn editors and a global panel of industry experts over a three month selection process on five criteria, including innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz. As an AlwaysOn Global 250 winner, Antenna was selected from thousands of domestic and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists and industry insiders.
Antenna’s product innovation and growth strategy has also been recognized by other prestigious organizations in the past six months, as the Antenna Mobility Platform (AMP) was awarded the Best Mobile Enterprise Solution at Mobile World Congress and Antenna itself was named to the Red Herring Top 100 North America list of private companies earlier this year.
“As the global market for mobile software continues to accelerate at an exponential rate, our commitment to helping enterprise customers and partners embrace the mobile channel only gets stronger,” said Jim Hemmer, president and CEO of Antenna. “Being named as a winner of the AlwaysOn Global 250 validates all of the innovative mobile apps and websites that are powered by AMP -- Antenna’s industry-leading mobile platform. We are thrilled to be recognized for helping businesses deliver a great mobile experience to users without compromising on enterprise-grade control and security.”
Antenna and other AlwaysOn Global 250 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s ninth annual Innovation Summit on Thursday, July 28, 2011, at the Louis B. Mayer Theatre at Santa Clara University in Santa Clara, Calif. The two-day executive gathering will highlight significant economic, political and commercial influences on the industry, as well as the most promising entrepreneurial opportunities and investments in the global technology market.
“This year’s AlwaysOn Global 250 are companies driven by the biggest mega-trends, including the accelerating growth of mobile users, cloud computing, SaaS offerings, globalization and the socialization of commerce and basically everything online,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s winners clearly represent some of the highest-growth opportunities we’ve seen in the private company marketplace in the history of the Global Silicon Valley.”
