Appistry, a pioneer in private cloud computing for the enterprise, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDC Top 100 Winners. The OnDC 100 list represents the top 100 private companies contributing to the renewed and continued prosperity of our country. Appistry 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.
"It's no secret that technology and innovation are vital to bringing our country out of economic recession and transforming important sectors like energy and healthcare," said Tony Perkins, founder and CEO of AlwaysOn. "We congratulate the OnDC 100 for their success in introducing new tools, services, and systems to address the nation's top priorities."
The OnDC 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 2009 list.
