While I typically write an end of year wrap up in the new year, I couldn’t help writing about some recent awards MindTouch has been honored by. Beginning with, for the second year in a row, MindTouch was listed as a ReadWriteWeb Top 10 Enterprise Products. Other products honored included those from Microsoft, Salesforce, Jive Software, Cisco Systems and Apple. I am proud to note Microsoft and Cisco are both MindTouch customers too.
Two of the selected products that shared the spotlight this year with MindTouch are Microsoft Sharepoint and Jive Software SBS. MindTouch VP, Mark Fidelman recently highlighted these products in a blog post at CloudAve: SharePoint 2010 vs, MindTouch the Battle of the Platforms and Jive Software vs. MindTouch – a Guide for Decision Makers. Thanks for the recognition Alex, Marshall, Richard, et al.
In addition to the RWW honor, MindTouch has received many other accolades in recent months including:
- EContent Magazine Top 100
- Forrester Research citing MindTouch as the best product alternative to industry heavyweights Microsoft and IBM (lead researcher @rkoplowitz)
- CIO Magazine citing MindTouch as one of 11 open source companies to watch (authored by @johnfontana)
- The Jolt product excellence award for best enterprise tool
- Inclusion in the Gartner Magic Quadrant report
- The San Diego Business Journal recognizing MindTouch as one of the best places to work in San Diego and honoring me as one of the most inspiring CEOs
In addition to the industry and media accolades, MindTouch continues economy-defying success with seven quarters of, at least, double digit revenue growth.
Thank you all for recognizing our hard work. At MindTouch we pride ourselves in working harder. We’ll continue to do our best to live up to the high standards set by these awards and recognition.
I wish that every one has a lot of time to spend with their loved ones during the holidays. For now, I’ll leave you with this JibJab video that was sent to me by a fellow MindToucher. It features the MindTouch executive team.
