San Francisco, CA May 14, 2014 – Splice Machine, provider of the only Hadoop RDBMS, 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. Splice Machine 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.
Splice Machine and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s OnDemand event on June 4th, 2014, at Draper University in San Mateo, CA.
This exclusive event treats attendees to a high-level debate and discourse on top trends and opportunities in the SaaS, cloud, on-demand, and mobile enterprise sectors.
“This year, the top cloud infrastructure, SaaS, and on-demand software players are making serious inroads into the enterprise and business community. Cloud storage wars and excellent software offerings are making the cloud an even more attractive place to do business. Both business and consumer users are migrating to the cloud in droves, bringing us into a new digital age filled with opportunity,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s OnDemand 100 winners list is jam packed with companies that are using the cloud to create and host imaginative, versatile apps. Mobile, business, consumer—the on-demand universe is propelling the entire Global Silicon Valley into an interdependent, connected, and mobile future.”
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 2014 list.
