Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — Appcelerator®, the leading mobile cloud platform for rapidly developing native mobile, HTML5, desktop, web and tablet applications using web technologies, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnMobile Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnMobile 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Appcelerator was 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.
Appcelerator and the OnMobile Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s OnMobile event on June 15th, 2011, at The Fox Theatre in Redwood City, CA.
This two-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the top emerging mobile companies are creating new business opportunities in the hot, high-growth mobile market.
“The mobile market is booming, as evidenced by top researchers, who are predicting that more smartphones will be shipped in 2012 than PCs, and there will be more mobile Internet users than PC Internet users by 2014,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This explosive market is being driven by the companies that made this year’s OnMobile Top 100 list. We congratulate the OnMobile 100, a great list of companies that our editors believe represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace.”
The OnMobile 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 2011 list.
“It’s an exciting time for mobile, and we’re honored to be recognized by the AlwaysOn team for our leadership in the mobile platform space,” says Jeff Haynie, CEO of Appcelerator. “This award is really for our customers, who are showing what great things are possible with mobile. They are using their web development skills with our platform to create great new mobile experiences.”
