MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/19/12 -- Adaptive Planning, the worldwide leader in cloud-based corporate performance management (CPM) solutions for companies and nonprofits of all sizes, today announced that it was chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Adaptive Planning was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
"Digital information has expanded exponentially during the past year. As the emergence of robust, innovative apps needed to manage this information continues, a complex world of interconnected business intelligence and ideas is being created at a new macro level," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "This year's OnDemand 100 winners are continuing to use disruptive technology and ideas to merge valuable legacy data and systems with new, vital streams of information. The results are being deployed in the cloud by any number of SaaS products and services, changing the way all business coexist. The OnDemand 100 continues to represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace."
The OnDemand 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2012 list.
Adaptive Planning fundamentally changes the world of financial planning and reporting, and has become the de facto solution for cloud-based CPM, with more customers and more partners than all other cloud CPM providers combined. Adaptive Planning's software as a service (SaaS) delivery model presents significant advantages over traditional on-premise corporate performance management software, including 75 percent lower total cost of ownership, greater ease of use, and deployments that take just weeks instead of months.
"We are delighted to be recognized as an OnDemand Top 100 Winner, as it validates the enthusiastic feedback we've received from customers and exceptional momentum we're experiencing in the marketplace," said Greg Schneider, Vice President of Marketing for Adaptive Planning. "We are pleased to see AlwaysOn highlighting innovation and leadership in cloud technology, since we are experiencing the on-demand phenomenon firmly taking hold among companies and nonprofits of all sizes."
