Krux Honored as a 2014 OnMedia Top 100 Company by AlwaysOn
SAN FRANCISCO and NEW YORK, September 16, 2014 – Krux (http://www.krux.com), a global technology leader in cloud-based data management, has been named to the 2014 AlwaysOn OnMedia Top 100 for being one of the most promising private companies in the Internet media, advertising and commerce sectors.
The OnMedia 100 honors the top emerging companies that are creating new business opportunities in the world of media, advertising, marketing, branding and public relations. Companies are selected based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz. The winning companies were recognized at a ceremony on September 15 in New York.
Krux has also recently garnered three other industry recognitions for its powerful and innovative cross-platform data management platform (DMP):
CIO Review’s Top 100 Most Promising Companies – CIO Review’s May 2014 issue focuses on companies providing practical applications and business cases of leveraging Big Data technologies for competitive advantage. According to Editor-in-Chief Pradeep Shankar, “For several companies, Big Data is moving from the theoretical to the practical... They are now moving from ‘analyzing historical data to real-time analytics.’”
CIO Review specifically called out Krux’s core competitive advantage of being fully agnostic:
“Krux did not pivot into this space as a former demand-side platform or an ad network. As a result, Krux has substantially more technical horsepower to solve the needs of modern web operators.”
EContent’s Trendsetting Products of 2014 – Trade publisher EContent’s May issue honors products “that get the job done” and the companies “that are identifying the trends impacting the industry and making sure that—to paraphrase hockey player Wayne Gretzky—they skate not to where the puck is, but to where it is going.”
Krux was named to a short list of companies “aiming to help publishers deal with data, manage the total web experience, and find new ways to monetize content.”
TiE50 Awards Program – This award, from TiE Silicon Valley, honors the top 50 technology start-ups out of thousands each year. An experienced panel of judges selects the winners based on three parameters – business model, IP value and leadership team. Krux was honored at TiEcon, the world’s largest conference for entrepreneurs, for creating more effective consumer experiences for people across all devices.
“We wouldn’t be receiving these accolades if it weren’t for our top-notch team and our customers, who continue to push the boundaries of data-driven innovation,” said Krux Co-founder and CEO Tom Chavez. “We have assembled the best Big Data team in the industry at Krux, and these awards are entirely to their credit.”
