PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - Feb 7, 2012) - Webtrends, the global leader in unified mobile, social and web analytics and engagement, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnMedia Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnMedia 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Webtrends 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.

Webtrends is focused on fostering innovation and has emerged as the leading pure play in analytics and personalization, providing real time relevance and ROI to customers. As a result, the company has enjoyed record-breaking growth -- in the first half of the FY2012, earnings grew by an astounding 418 percent over H1 of FY2011 and SaaS revenues were up more than 20 percent compared to H1′LY. Proving that it's committed to driving innovation within the market, Webtrends recently announced that it will put $7 million toward the hiring of more than 50 new positions, including 35 in engineering.

"We have out-paced competitors because we are focused on developing cutting-edge products and solutions, and expanding our IP footprint across the globe," said Alex Yoder, chief executive officer of Webtrends. "The recognition by AlwaysOn OnMedia is a testament to our entire team's efforts and I'm honored to accept it on behalf of the talented people driving this innovation within Webtrends."

Webtrends and the OnMedia Top 100 Companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnMedia NYC event on February 22nd, 2012, at the Time Warner Center.

This two-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on which forces are disrupting user behavior and creating new opportunities in the marketing, branding, advertising, and public relations industries.

"The make-up of OnMedia 100 represents forward-thinking media companies in a year charged with disruptive change. The emergence of Web-fueled TV and the explosive growth of smartphones and tablets are challenging the media world to transform itself into a global, consumer-focused industry. Coupled with the socialization of everything, this year's digital media and entertainment startups are boldly charging into future, ready to reinvent the establishment with new, invigoration products and services," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "Web analytics are now embracing a social world, providing marketing and advertising companies with the targeted data that delivers on the promise of reaching consumers with meaningful, actionable messages."
