Leading SaaS Integration Company Identified as One of the Most Promising Technology Innovators in the World
BERWYN, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/16/09 -- Boomi, the market and technology leader for on-demand integration, today announced that it has been selected to the 2009 AlwaysOn Global 250 List. The AlwaysOn Global 250 Award is given to private, emerging technology companies creating new business opportunities in high-growth markets.
AlwaysOn surveyed hundreds of venture investors, investment bankers and technology insiders, who nominated more than 800 companies to determine the AlwaysOn Global 250 winners. Boomi was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team based on its number of company and market milestones, including the success and rapid adoption of its revolutionary AtomSphere : cloud integration platform.
Boomi AtomSphere is a complete on-demand integration service that enables companies to link any combination of SaaS and on-premises applications together without the burden of installing and maintaining integration software or appliances. With its 'connect once - integrate everywhere'™ architecture, AtomSphere has become the solution of choice among major SaaS vendors and other service providers.
"This is significant validation of the vision we had in 2005 to build and deliver the industry's first true SaaS integration platform," said Bob Moul, CEO of Boomi. "Being named as one of the top 250 private companies in the world by AlwaysOn is certainly an honor and supports our belief that more and more industry influencers understand the significant role integration plays in advancing the cloud revolution."
Boomi and the other AlwaysOn Global 250 winners will be recognized at the AlwaysOn & STVP Summit at Stanford, taking place at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA, on July 28-30. This two-and-a-half day executive conference, co-presented by the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, will highlight the significant economic, political and commercial trends affecting the global technology industries.
"It's no secret that technology and innovation are vital to bringing our country out of economic recession," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "The companies on this year's list have not only created innovative technologies that solve real business problems, but have stimulated economic growth through the generation of new jobs. I congratulate every winner selected for this year's award and wish them all tremendous success in the future."
The AlwaysOn Global 250 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 2009 list.
