BURLINGTON, MA – June 20 , 2012 - Attunity Ltd. (OTC BB: ATTUF), a leading provider of information availability software solutions, announced today that its high-performance data replication software solution, Attunity Replicate, was awarded the Best of TechEd 2012 Award in the business intelligence (BI) category. The annual awards program is produced by Penton Media’s SQL Server Pro and Windows IT Pro Magazines.
The Best of TechEd 2012 awards recognize companies that offer innovative products for the industry. The judges reviewed a total of 297 products and services from multiple categories submitted for the award and chose 46 total finalists, up to three per category, to be interviewed at the Microsoft TechEd North America 2012 conference in Orlando, Florida, on June 12th-13th 2012. Winners were announced at an invite-only evening reception in Florida on June 14. A list of winners and product descriptions can be found at: http://www.windowsitpro.com/awards/best-of-tech-ed.
“We narrowed down a list of almost 300 products this year to 46 extremely deserving finalists—an honor in itself,” said Jason Bovberg, Senior Editor at Penton Media. “All 46 finalists represent highly distinguished products and services in their categories, but through our research and show-floor interview process, we managed to choose this year’s winners. Our 2012 Best of TechEd winners stand apart from the pack, either offering an edge in product functionality, boasting enhanced feature sets in new versions, or introducing innovative technology,” remarked Bovberg. Winners were chosen based on their innovation, strategic importance to the market, competitive advantage, and exceptional value to customers.
“Given the large competition and breadth of the offerings at TechEd this year, it is truly an honor that Attunity Replicate was recognized as the Best BI solution for 2012,” stated Matt Benati, Vice President Global Marketing at Attunity. “We are immensely proud that Attunity Replicate’s top attributes – high-performance, ease of use and zero footprint architecture – were as impressive to the judges as they are to our customers. Attunity Replicate’s Click2Replicate design and high performance capabilities speak for themselves and prove that data replication can be made powerfully simple.”
