PivotLink Selected by AlwaysOn as an OnDemand Top 100 Winner

Recognized for Creating New Opportunities in Cloud Computing and SaaS

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 28, 2011) - PivotLink, the leading provider of business intelligence (BI) solutions delivered via Software as a Service (SaaS), today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. PivotLink 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.

PivotLink and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnDemand event on March 28th, 2011, at Hewlett-Packard's Worldwide Headquarters 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 the digital information created by businesses continues to explode at astronomical rates, the need to store, manage, socialize, and share this information is becoming extremely challenging," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "By providing innovative technologies that help enterprises better compete in this new era of information complexity and move their data out into the cloud, the OnDemand 100 represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace."

The OnDemand 100 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 2011 list.

AlwaysOn will recognize the OnDemand 100 winners for one of seven categories. PivotLink will be acknowledged as a leader in the "on-demand software - business management applications" group. PivotLink also extends its congratulations to it partners -- Appirio, Host Analytics and Hubspan -- who were also named top 100 winners.
