Gartner Once Again Positions ANTENNA® as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms Leading Analyst Firm Evaluates Mobile Platforms Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
JERSEY CITY, N.J., Aug. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ANTENNA®, the authority on enterprise mobility, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Leaders" quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms (MADP) for the second consecutive year. Antenna is the only company listed in the report that has been positioned as a leader in mobile application platform Magic Quadrants (MEAP and MADP) four out of the last five years.[i]
Antenna's positioning by Gartner is based on its completeness of vision and ability to execute. The company also believes it is a reflection of its agility both from a product and company standpoint. As the mobile channel has become more of a strategic priority for businesses in recent years, Antenna has continually evolved its products and services in anticipation of growing market demand and more rigorous enterprise requirements. Since 1998 Antenna has helped companies mobilize their business, and with the most recent version of AMPchroma, the company's flexible and scalable mobility Platform-as-a-Service, it is easier than ever for global 1000 organizations to build and manage mobile applications with Antenna.
According to the report, "Selecting mobile application development platforms (MADPs) has become an urgent issue for many CIOs. Less than seven years after the introduction of Apple's iPhone, the worldwide installed base of smartphones and tablets will surpass that of PCs in 2013. As a result, mobile technologies ranked as a top technology priority in Gartner's last three annual CIO surveys. Building mobile applications is an important component of an enterprise's mobile strategies, because applications provide much of the potential business return on investments in mobile infrastructure. Enterprises build mobile websites and apps to engage customers wherever they are. Similarly, they build mobile applications to improve employee efficiency and effectiveness. However, selecting a MADP is not easy."[ii]
"Last year we witnessed a true sea change in the enterprise mobility marketplace with a flood of both large and small companies entering the red-hot mobile applications market. Gartner has the unenviable task of sifting through this large and complex ecosystem and helping its clients identify the right partner for the right job," said Jim Hemmer, president and CEO of Antenna Software. "We are thrilled that the firm has once again recognized Antenna as a leader in its MADP market assessment, and we believe this cements our understanding of an ever-changing market, and our ability to deliver a flexible, end-to-end mobile platform that enterprises want and need."
