Hubspan Wins Top 100 OnDemand Private Company Award by AlwaysOn

Prestigious Award Recognizes Companies Creating New Opportunities and Disrupting the Market With Pioneering Cloud Computing and SaaS Solutions

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - April 6, 2010) - Hubspan, the leading provider of cloud-based business integration solutions, today announced it was chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the 2010 OnDemand Top 100 Private Companies. To win this award, companies must demonstrate how they are creating new opportunities and disrupting the market with pioneering cloud computing and software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions. According to AlwaysOn, inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies industry leadership and game-changing approaches and technologies.

Hubspan 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. 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 2010 list.

"By leveraging the cloud, Hubspan provides our customers with innovative, on-demand solutions that solve business process and integration challenges quickly and cost-effectively," said Margaret Dawson, vice president of marketing and product management, Hubspan Inc. "We have built a cutting-edge, Net-native integration platform that brings the agility, flexibility and scalability businesses need in today's global marketplace." 

Hubspan was the first company in the market to build a true cloud-based platform for business integration delivered as a service. Its new flagship solution is the WebSpan SaaS Integration Platform, a joint solution with IBM that combines Hubspan's cloud platform and managed services with key components of IBM WebSphere integration software. By using WebSpan, companies can build vast business integration networks without any on-premise software or hardware. WebSpan is available in a range of packaged integration solutions, from file transfer, purchase order, punchout and e-invoicing to more sophisticated business processes, such as Advanced EDI, supply chain, demand chain and eCommerce integration.

"As the digital information created by businesses continues to explode at astronomical rates, the need to store, manage, analyze, and share this information is becoming extremely challenging," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "We congratulate this year's OnDemand 100 for providing the technology platforms and services needed to manage and leverage this new era of information complexity and overload."

Hubspan and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnDemand event on April 19th, 2010, at Hewlett-Packard's Worldwide Headquarters in Palo Alto, CA. This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the Internet is disrupting how companies -- from small businesses to large enterprises -- create, store, distribute, analyze, and take advantage of their mission-critical data.
