It was difficult to limit ourselves to 50 startups because there are a lot of exciting companies out there. That said, we believe the Startup 50 have innovative solutions to critical business problems and are worthy of enterprise consideration
Piscataway, NJ (PRWEB) April 27, 2009
Bluenog, an enterprise software and solutions company, announced that InformationWeek has named Bluenog to its first ever Startup 50 ranking. The award for Bluenog was voted on by the editorial staff as well as reader votes. It recognizes Bluenog for the innovation, value and enterprise-readiness of Bluenog ICE, an award-winning commercial product built on open source CMS, open source portal and open source BI projects.
Companies named to the prestigious list were required to undergo a three-step voting process that included nomination, online voting and editorial vetting. The InformationWeek editorial staff made the final selection based on reader votes and their analysis of several criteria: the companies' ability to inject innovation into existing business processes; value, which is reflected in lower costs, increased sales, higher productivity, or improved customer loyalty; and enterprise-readiness, meaning that a product or service scales and can be deployed and managed as necessary by IT pros.
InformationWeek created the short list to provide IT stakeholders with an analysis of leading-edge companies that represent innovation and the ability to help solve critical IT problems, cut costs, and improve operations.
"It was difficult to limit ourselves to 50 startups because there are a lot of exciting companies out there.
