Covario Ranked Among Top 100 “On-Demand” Companies
AlwaysOn Group Recognizes San Diego Search and Software Company Three Times in a Year
SAN DIEGO, May 5, 2010 – Covario, Inc., a leader in search and display advertising software and agency services for Forbes Global 2000 companies, was recently named as one of the nation’s top 100 “on-demand” privately-held companies by AlwaysOn, a leading consulting firm in the field of “cloud-based” network services.
On demand technologies relate to the emergence of software-as-a-service (SaaS) or cloud-based services, which are becoming more prevalent in business, financial, sales and marketing infrastructures as companies become less IT dependent relative to traditional computer hardware and software-based systems.
Covario was among a select group of nominees cited by AlwaysOn for its leadership in the area of business management applications.
The AlwaysOn editorial team, along with partners at Morgan Stanley, KPMG and Hewlett-Packard, in addition to industry experts around the world, scoured the entrepreneurial community to identify the top 100 private companies, which in their words are “taking old notions of data management, customer relationships and infrastructure, and forging solutions that will lead to industry shake-up and huge value creation opportunities.”
Privately-held companies like Covario were considered for the top 100 based on a set of five criteria, including innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.
This is the third time Covario has been recognized by AlwaysOn in the past 12 months. The San Diego-based company was previously acknowledged as one of the AlwaysOn Global 250 leading SaaS companies overall, in addition to being ranked among the organization’s OnMedia 100 list within the advertising service provider category.
“Being recognized three times within a year from a single organization, plus being selected as one of the AlwaysOn Global 250 two years in a row, is quite an honor,” said Russ Mann, CEO of Covario. “The fact that we were singled out for both our best of breed SEO and SEM software, as well as our advertising services, is a testament to the new world of online marketing. Digital marketing now requires a blend of both software and analytic capabilities, in addition to strategic services in order to provide our clients with real innovation and maximum ROI.”
