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

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

JERSEY CITY, NJ--(Marketwire - May 11, 2011) - Antenna Software, enabling business transformation through compelling mobile experiences, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Visionaries" quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Mobile Enterprise Application Platforms (MEAP) report by Michael J. King and William Clark.1

According to Gartner, "The MEAP market already has overlap with capabilities seen in MCAP (Mobile Consumer Application Platform) offerings, and MEAP vendors are now offering both." Gartner also states that "By 2014, the MEAP, mobile consumer application and Web development approaches will converge into a new generation of multichannel development tools."

"When the mobile market finally tipped, it also flipped," said Jim Hemmer, president and CEO of Antenna. "The mobile user experience is the new norm -- and this has enormous potential to not only extend enterprise applications, but also to transform the business by delivering a consistent and compelling experience for everyone -- from employees in the mobile workforce to millions of consumers on myriad devices."

"We believe our positioning in the 'Visionaries' quadrant shows that Antenna has rightly anticipated the impact of consumerization on the enterprise and has made the necessary moves to meet the needs of our customers and partners. With a converged approach that spans B2E and B2C mobile offerings and supports the latest and best in standards-based and emerging technologies and devices, Antenna is well positioned to continue to lead this market. We are committed to simplifying and managing the inherent complexities of mobility, creating apps that people love to use, and delivering excellence in all that we do."

The Antenna Mobility Platform (AMP) enables enterprises to build, manage, publish and consume native apps and mobile Web content on any mobile device -- from smartphones and tablets to low-end cell phones. Utilizing standards-based technologies, AMP allows organizations to not only build mobile apps or websites once and deploy across any combination of devices, but also centrally deploy, manage, and secure their mobile deployment.
