Elite List Identifies Most Promising Innovation-Driven and Growth-Oriented Private Companies East of the Mississippi
BERWYN, PA--(Marketwire - May 5, 2009) - Boomi, the market and technology leader for on-demand integration, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the top 100 private companies in the Northeast region of the U.S. Private companies had to be nominated by their peers and demonstrate leadership in areas such as innovation, market potential, customer adoption, media buzz and investor value creation. AlwaysOn received hundreds of nominations from venture investors, investment bankers and other industry experts. Boomi was chosen for the success and rapid adoption of its revolutionary AtomSphere cloud integration platform.
Boomi and the AO East 100 Private Companies will be honored at a reception at AlwaysOn's Venture Summit East from May 20-22, 2009 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Boston. Attended by leading institutional investors, venture capitalists, investment bankers, research analysts and corporate buyers, Venture Summit East is a three-day gathering that highlights the significant economic, political, and technology trends impacting the global growth investor. The goal of Venture Summit East is to match growth-company buyers and sellers and identify the most promising innovation-driven, growth investment opportunities. Venture Summit East will also play host to CEO Showcases from qualified companies seeking later-stage capital or potential acquirers.
"Despite a floundering global economy, it is clear from this list of nominees that innovation and growth are alive and well in the East," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "Even the difficult economic times have not slowed the pace of innovation for these organizations. The AlwaysOn East 100 winners have demonstrated a tremendous ability to overcome some of the most challenging economic conditions in our nation's history to create new strategies and plans for growth and to serve as a beacon for private companies everywhere."
Since Boomi launched AtomSphere in late 2007, it has compiled an impressive list of awards and recognition including the AlwaysOn Global 250, the JMP Securities Hot 100 (honoring the 100 leading private companies in the software industry), the 2009 CODiE Awards as a finalist for Best On-Demand Platform, the Stevies International Business Award as a finalist, the b-Mighty Innovation Awards and an honorable mention in Gartner's Magic Quadrant of Integration Service Providers as "a vendor to watch closely." Boomi's business traction has also been impressive adding well over 100 new customers and 40 partners in the first year after launch and doubling its growth rate thus far in 2009.
"Boomi AtomSphere has revolutionized the integration industry," said Bob Moul, Boomi's president and CEO. "More and more businesses, software vendors, and system integrators are making the switch from conventional integration products and appliances to join the cloud revolution. It's a tremendous validation and we are honored to be included among the AlwaysOn East 100 companies."
