Third Technology Award in 2011 Enhances Certain's Recognition as Innovative SaaS Leader

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 28, 2011) - Certain Software, the leading provider of collaborative event management solutions for maximizing the business value of events, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the AlwaysOn Global 250 winners. Inclusion in the AlwaysOn Global 250 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players in the Global Silicon Valley. This is the second AlwaysOn award secured by Certain, and the third award recognition for the company this year.

Certain's comprehensive, feature-rich applications maximize business value by providing a collaborative platform for all event stakeholders to plan, manage and execute simple, to extremely complex, global events. Certain solutions also leverage on-demand technologies such as mobile and virtual to engage attendees in real-time, driving unmatched interaction amongst all participants, whether it's a VIP board meeting or a 50,000-person world congress.

The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month process to finalize the selection of Certain, and the other organizations named on the 2011 list, from among thousands of domestic and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders.

"This year's AlwaysOn Global 250 are companies driven by the biggest mega-trends, including the accelerating growth of mobile users, cloud computing, and SaaS offerings, globalization, and the socialization of commerce and basically everything online," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "This year's winners clearly represent some of the highest-growth opportunities we've seen in the private company marketplace in the history of the global Silicon Valley."

"Our accelerated pace in the last year is driven by a desire to arm our customers with unmatched ability to derive measurable value from their event and marketing programs," said Peter Micciche, CEO of Certain Software. "This award shows that the advancements we've brought to the market are being recognized as exemplary amongst a very strong field of technology providers. We are honored to be chosen for a second time by AlwaysOn and look forward to continuing to innovate in alignment with our customers' expanding business needs."
