PivotLink Selected as an OnDemand Top 100 Winner by AlwaysOnRecognized Third Consecutive Year for Creating New Opportunities in On-Demand Software, Cloud Computing and SaaS (March 21, 2012)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/21/12 -- PivotLink, the leading provider of retail performance management solutions delivered via Software as a Service (SaaS), today announced that it has been 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. PivotLink was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts based on five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.
PivotLink and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnDemand event on April 4th, 2012, at Hewlett-Packard's Executive Briefing Center in Cupertino, CA. The executive event explores how the Internet is disrupting how companies create, store, distribute, analyze, and take advantage of their mission-critical data.
"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."
"We thank AlwaysOn for recognizing our unique approach to helping retailers transition to a customer-centric model by deriving actionable insights from product, customer, sales and social data," said Bruce Armstrong, CEO, PivotLink. "Winning again this year is testament to the significant value PivotLink customers are achieving using our market-leading business intelligence (BI) platform, analytic applications and Retail Big Data Library."
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.
