Dexterra Positioned in Visionaries Quadrant of Magic Quadrant for Mobile Enterprise Application Platforms

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

BOTHELL, WA--(Marketwire - December 22, 2008) - Dexterra, Inc., a leading provider of software to automate and manage mobile workforces, announced today its inclusion in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile Enterprise Application Platforms(1) following evaluation of Dexterra's completeness of vision and ability to execute. The Magic Quadrant positioned Dexterra in the Visionaries quadrant for mobile enterprise application platforms.

The report reflected on Gartner's predictions from last year which were "The MAG (Multichannel Access Gateway) market will top $1 billion by 2010. By 2010, 50% of enterprises will have migrated away from tactical mobile application silos (supporting a single application) to strategic platforms capable of supporting multiple applications, managing devices, and securing data and transport." Gartner continued, "The first prediction is still holding, although growth slowed slightly in 2008 as compared with 2007."

The Dexterra mobility platform, Dexterra Concert, now available in both Enterprise and Carrier editions, is a highly flexible development environment that enables both traditional and less technical developers to easily build mobile business applications. Dexterra Concert provides customers a single platform for mobile application development that integrates with enterprise back-office and legacy systems either behind corporate firewalls or as a hosted service from their wireless carrier.

"In the last year, Dexterra has focused on breaking down the barriers to mobility by making our technology and applications easy-to-use and enabling partners to build mobile applications quickly," said Michael Liebow, CEO of Dexterra. "During the last 12 months we have seen significant use of Dexterra Concert by software companies to mobilize their industry-specific applications, proving that mobility is not an IT issue as much as it is an overall business strategy. As we continue to engage with higher level decision makers inside the customer organization, going beyond the IT department, we are becoming a trusted partner and leader in helping our customers achieve true enterprise mobility."
