Leading Analyst Firm Positions Antenna Software in the Leaders Quadrant for Magic Quadrant on Mobile Application Development Platforms
Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
JERSEY CITY, N.J. - May 2, 2012 - Antenna Software Inc., helping enterprises to build, manage and publish mobile apps and websites that transform business, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Leaders" quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms (MADP). [i]
Antenna's positioning by Gartner reflects its completeness of vision and ability to execute. Antenna also considers it a testament to its ability to deliver successful mobile solutions, as well as the company's continued growth in global markets and the strength of its core mobile application development platform. Earlier this year Antenna launched AMPchromaTM, a new cloud-based suite of mobile application development tools. With AMPchroma, companies can design, build, deploy, and manage every type of mobile asset, including native and hybrid web-apps, mobile websites, and corporate app stores, from a single web-based console.
According to Gartner, "In previous years, enterprises have tended to evaluate mobile application development platforms (MADPs) based solely on the needs of their current mobile projects. However, increasingly enterprises look for a single MADP that can address most, if not all, of their future projects across all scenarios. As a result this Magic Quadrant is composed of vendor platforms that can be used to meet requirements for B2C, B2B and/or B2E projects."
AMPchroma is the first mobile management suite of its kind that addresses the full mobile lifecycle and keeps the costs of 'going mobile' to a minimum by eliminating infrastructure investments and the redundant operating costs associated with disparate mobile projects. The suite has been designed to support a holistic approach to mobile management- helping CIOs unify their mobile business strategies, allowing IT departments to oversee and secure the channel, and empowering individual departments to achieve their own mobile ambitions.
"The mobile application marketplace is clearly one of the most dynamic and exciting areas in business today, with new entrants, new technologies, and new business models being introduced virtually on a daily basis. Given this rapid pace of change, we feel we have a certain responsibility to customers and partners alike to stay in front of the innovation curve and keep them current as the market evolves," said Jim Hemmer, president and CEO of Antenna Software. "We are extremely pleased that Gartner has recognized Antenna as a leader in MADP and we believe this is a testament to our strong vision for how this market has evolved, but equally as important, our ability to execute at a level that distinguishes us as a market leader."
