Antenna Positioned in the Visionaries Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Mobile Consumer Application Platforms

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

JERSEY CITY, NJ--(Marketwire - Jun 24, 2011) - Antenna Software, Inc., helping enterprises to build, manage and publish mobile apps and websites that transform business, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Visionaries" quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Mobile Consumer Application Platforms (MCAP) report by William Clark, Michael J. King and Linda Dozier.(i)

According to Gartner, "the demand by enterprises for mobile web adaptation platforms will increase at a compound annual growth rate of 40 percent through 2014. Driven by new business opportunities represented by the emergence of media tablets and the more than 5 billion mobile phones in use worldwide, growing to over 6.7 billion by 2015, interest in mobile business-to-consumer (B2C) facing applications will continue to significantly outpace that of mobile enterprise application adoption throughout 2011-2014, and application and Web development in general."

The Antenna Mobility Platform (AMP) enables enterprises to build, publish, manage and consume native apps, HTML5 web apps, and mobile web content on any mobile device -- from smartphones and tablets to low-end cell phones. Also recognized as a "Visionary" in the Magic Quadrant for Mobile Enterprise Application Platform (MEAP), Antenna is a single, strategic vendor for businesses that want to deploy B2C and B2E mobile offerings with support for the latest standards-based and emerging technologies and devices. With AMP organizations can not only build mobile apps and websites once and deploy across any combination of devices, but also centrally manage and secure their mobile deployment.

"Whether you are targeting consumers or employees there are innumerable mobile use cases. At Antenna, it is our job to help enterprises sift through all the complexity and develop the optimal mobile solution to meet their immediate requirements, while working toward a long-term mobile vision that spans the entire organization," said Jim Hemmer, president and CEO of Antenna. "We believe Antenna's positioning in the 'Visionaries' quadrant underscores how Antenna is leading the market with its ability to deliver true cross-platform capabilities; enable a diverse developer community; and support the deployment within a secure mobile management platform. The breadth and depth of Antenna's mobile solutions enable enterprises to build a multichannel and multiuser strategy for greater marketing and business impact."
