Antenna Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant in the 2009 Magic Quadrant for Mobile Enterprise Application Platforms

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

JERSEY CITY, NJ--(Marketwire - December 22, 2009) - Antenna Software, delivering real business mobility to the world's most demanding enterprises, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for Mobile Enterprise Application Platforms" report(1). This recognition comes during a landmark year for the company -- with more than 200 customers, 250,000 end users and a compound annual growth rate of 85 percent in recurring revenues. A key part of Antenna's expansion was its acquisition of competitor Dexterra, enabling it to scale globally and drive innovation, while continuing to execute on an aggressive product roadmap for its flagship Antenna Mobility Platform™ (AMP).

According to Gartner, "The offerings in this Magic Quadrant, and mobile application enablement will continue to grow in importance to enterprises during the next three to five years, as enterprises continue to extend decision-relevant information to employees, who themselves are increasingly mobile." Gartner also states, "We believe that more than 95 percent of organizations will be choosing MEAP or packaged mobile application vendors as their primary mobile development platform through 2012."(1)

"As the demand for mobile applications continues to grow, AT&T remains focused on enabling its customers to mobilize business applications and deploy them in a highly secure, reliable and cost-effective manner," said Ebrahim Keshavarz, vice president, Business Development. "AT&T's Mobile Enterprise Application Platform (MEAP), powered by the industry-leading Antenna Mobility Platform, provides AT&T customers with access to a broad application portfolio, Antenna's unrivaled enterprise mobility expertise and highly usable apps that can be easily managed and controlled by IT."

"Not only is Antenna the de facto industry leader in the mobile market, but it is also the leader with the most vision, setting the standard for where the industry is going in 2010 and beyond," said Jim Hemmer, president and CEO, Antenna Software. "The beauty of mobility is that it has the power to align IT infrastructure more tightly with business needs, facilitating macro improvements in business processes. At the same time, mobile apps simplify the day-to-day activities of every end user, empowering the frontlines of the company and engaging mobile-savvy customers in new ways. We are thrilled to be a leader in such a dynamic and exciting market and will continue to provide our customers and partners with transformative mobile solutions at the best possible value."
