Adknowledge Selected as an OnMedia Top 100 Winner by AlwaysOn

KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwire - Feb 17, 2012) - AlwaysOn recently announced the 2012 OnMedia Top 100 Private Companies, a list of the leading and cutting edge digital companies creating new business opportunities within the media, advertising, marketing, branding, and public relations industries. Adknowledge is recognized as a leader within the B-to-B Ad Networks category, one of five categories listed in the competition.

This year's OnMedia Top 100 companies are leaders amongst their peers and developing game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to push outside the bounds of existing markets. Companies were selected based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz. Adknowledge, as well as the other winners, will be officially honored at the AlwaysOn's OnMedia event on February 22nd, 2012, at the Time Warner Center in New York City.

According to AlwaysOn, "this year's OnMedia 100 represents mature, forward-thinking media companies in a year charged with disruptive change. Web-fueled TV is finally becoming a reality and, coupled with robust social platforms, provides a rich, new consumer base open to creative, targeted advertising and marketing products. Smartphone and tablet adoption continues to accelerate, challenging the entertainment and content world to transform itself into a global, consumer-focused industry. As entrenched, legacy institutions are faced with the socialization of everything, this year's digital media, advertising, and marketing startups are boldly charging into the future, ready to reinvent the establishment with new, invigorating products and services. On the back end, analytics companies are gaining access to a richer, deeper pool of data and providing marketers and advertisers with consumer profiles that deliver on the promise of reaching specific audiences with meaningful, actionable messages."
