MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 16, 2012) - Appcelerator®, the leading mobile platform company, today announced that it has received The Wall Street Journal's Annual Technology Innovation Award in the Software category for its Titanium mobile development technology. With 536 global applicants from more than two dozen countries, the award recognizes companies for innovative and disruptive technology considered to most likely change the industry. This marks Appcelerator's second major distinction in recent weeks from The Wall Street Journal, having been listed among the Top 50 Most Promising Venture-Backed Companies last month.
An independent panel of judges from venture capital firms, universities, and established industries conducted a rigorous research and evaluation process. Ultimately, the judges sought answers to these key questions when evaluating applicants across a broad set of criteria: "Does the innovation break with conventional processes in its field? Does it go beyond marginal improvement? Will it have a wide impact?" And in the case of Appcelerator, with its ability to reduce development time and costs for mobile applications through its Titanium technology, the judges recognized an exceptionally innovative company. With the Titanium platform in use by over 1,200 enterprises and 350,000 developers worldwide, this award validates Appcelerator's success in dramatically changing the traditional mobile development ecosystem.
"There is a quote that I love by Alan Kay -- 'The best way to predict the future is to invent it.' This is the standard of innovation we always try to deliver at Appcelerator," said Appcelerator CEO Jeff Haynie. "We are on a mission to enable developers and enterprises to deliver transformative mobile experiences to the world. We are honored that our passion for innovation and impact has been recognized by the Wall Street Journal with this prestigious award."
