REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 8, 2011 -- Funambol, the leader of smart cloud sync solutions, today announced it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as an OnMobile Top 100 winner. Inclusion in the OnMobile 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and players. Funambol was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.
"Funambol's selection as an AlwaysOn Top 100 winner recognizes our smart cloud sync software that is changing the industry for device makers, carriers and portals globally," said Amit Chawla, CEO at Funambol. "Apple's iCloud announcement has validated using the cloud for a digital hub and Funambol's vision of providing a wireless cloud sync solution for diverse content across multiple vendors' devices."
Funambol's solutions wirelessly sync rich media, files and PIM data via the cloud across the most mobile devices, including phones, computers, tablets and other connected devices. The company's white-label commercial software is used by many of the largest companies in mobile, while Funambol's open source software has been downloaded over 5 million times by 50,000 developers in 200 countries, making it the leading mobile open source cloud sync server project in the world.
Funambol and other OnMobile Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnMobile event on June 15, 2011 in Redwood City, CA. This two-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the top emerging mobile companies are creating new business opportunities in the hot, high-growth mobile market.
"The mobile market is booming, as evidenced by top researchers, who are predicting that more smartphones will be shipped in 2012 than PCs, and there will be more mobile Internet users than PC Internet users by 2014," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "This explosive market is being driven by the companies that made this year's OnMobile Top 100 list. We congratulate the OnMobile 100, a great list of companies that our editors believe represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace."
OnMobile 100 winners were selected from hundreds of technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2011 list.
