PivotLink Named to the OnDemand Top 100 for Leading Innovation in Cloud Computing and SaaS

CEO Quentin Gallivan to Present 'How SaaS is Remaking the Enterprise' at OnDemand 2010

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - April 19, 2010) -  PivotLink, the leading provider of business intelligence (BI) solutions delivered via Software as a Service (SaaS), today announced that the company will be honored among the OnDemand Top 100 Private Companies at the AlwaysOn OnDemand 2010 Conference April 19 - 21, 2010 at HP's worldwide headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif.

AlwaysOn will recognize the OnDemand 100 winners for "disrupting the established enterprise and pioneering cloud computing and SaaS." PivotLink salutes partners such as Appirio (overall winner), Boomi, Host Analytics, Hubspan and Marketo for their achievements as fellow OnDemand 100 winners.

PivotLink CEO Quentin Gallivan will present in two OnDemand sessions, where he'll describe the shift to SaaS-based collaborative dashboards and ad-hoc reports that overcome the cost and complexity of on-premise BI solutions:

  • Tuesday, April 20th at 2:15 p.m. - CEO Showcase session
  • Wednesday, April 21st at 9:15 a.m. - SaaS Remakes the Enterprise: Gallivan will join a panel of CEOs from Mimeo, EDGAR Online and EasyAsk to discuss applications that are thriving in the Cloud and answering every need for the enterprise. Attendees will learn how these entrepreneurs are conquering vertical markets with new on-demand software and business processes. The session will be moderated by Ted Smith, partner, Union Square Advisors.

"As the digital information created by businesses continues to explode at astronomical rates, the need to store, manage, and share this information is becoming extremely challenging," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "By providing innovative technologies that help enterprises better compete in this new era of information complexity, the OnDemand 100 represent some of the highest growth opportunities in the private company marketplace."

Gallivan added, "We're honored to be recognized as a Cloud and SaaS innovator in the company of PivotLink partners who share our commitment to putting BI in the hands of all business users. After decades of on-premise vendors limiting BI to a privileged few, we're thrilled to be leading the SaaS BI market by helping enterprise customers finally reap value from these systems."

According to AlwaysOn, "This year's OnDemand 100 companies are leaders amongst their peers and developing game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Companies were selected based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz."
