CUPERTINO, Calif. – June 4 , 2014 – SugarCRM Inc., the company that enables businesses to create extraordinary customer relationships with the most innovative and affordable CRM solution in the market, today announced it has made AlwaysOn's 2014 OnDemand Top 100 list as one of the most promising private companies in the on-demand, cloud and SaaS categories. This year marks the second consecutive OnDemand Top 100 win for the company, which met a set of five criteria — innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz — to re-claim the 2014 honor.

“This year, the top cloud infrastructure, SaaS and on-demand software players are making serious inroads in the enterprise and business community.  Cloud storage wars and innovative software offerings are making the cloud an even more attractive place to do business.  Both business and consumer users are migrating to the cloud in droves, bringing us into a new digital age filled with opportunity,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn.  “This year’s OnDemand 100 winners list is jam-packed with companies that are using the cloud to create and host imaginative, versatile apps.  Mobile, business, consumer — the on-demand universe is propelling the entire global Silicon Valley into an interdependent, connected and mobile future.” 

The OnDemand 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 2014 list.

“The distinction as an OnDemand Top 100 company reflects SugarCRM's market leadership, continued momentum and underscores the success we've achieved in re-defining the CRM industry," said Larry Augustin, SugarCRM CEO.   "We’re honored to be recognized and included in the OnDemand Top 100 list for a second consecutive year, and congratulate our fellow honorees who are helping to shape the on-demand, cloud and SaaS industries." 

SugarCRM and the other OnDemand Top 100 winners will be honored today at the AlwaysOn OnDemand event on Wednesday, June 4 at Draper University in San Mateo, California.  A full list of OnDemand 100 top private companies is available here.
