K2 Recognized for Creating New Opportunities in On-Demand Software, Cloud Computing and SaaS

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwired - May 9, 2013) - K2 (www.K2.com) -- a leader in business application software -- today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the 2013 OnDemand Companies to Watch.

People use K2 to build and run business applications including forms, workflow, data and reports. Across enterprises and within departments, K2 customers are rapidly transforming their companies with applications that connect people to information and work, anywhere and at any time.

Inclusion in the OnDemand Companies to Watch signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. K2 was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.

K2 and the OnDemand Companies to Watch will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnDemand event May 20, 2013, at Hewlett-Packard's Executive Briefing Center in Palo Alto, CA.

This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the Internet is disrupting how companies -- from small businesses to large enterprises -- create, store, distribute, analyze and take advantage of their mission-critical data.

"As we move into a new digital age that's fueled by robust applications, mobile technology and always-on performance, on-demand innovations are enhancing almost every sector of the online world. The borders are being pulled down between desktop, TV, tablet, smartphone and laptop, and the rigorous determination of the companies in the Global Silicon Valley are meeting and exceeding this developing entrepreneurial challenge," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn.

"The OnDemand Companies to Watch winners are using the increasingly stable and reliable cloud infrastructure to develop, maintain and deploy a continuous stream of disruptive technology to every single computer user on the planet. The OnDemand Companies to Watch are about to break into the Global Silicon Valley and become some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace," Perkins said.

The OnDemand Companies to Watch winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2013 list.
