MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WhoKnows today announced it has been named by AlwaysOn as one of the 2014 OnDemand Companies to Watch. A company's inclusion in the OnDemand Companies to Watch signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. WhoKnows was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe for its innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
"The OnDemand Companies to Watch winners are fueling the entrepreneurial process and using the power of the cloud to host a new world of highly nimble, versatile, and disruptive services," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "These companies are at the forefront of an exploding era of creative innovation and represent the Global Silicon Valley's highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace."
WhoKnows was recognized for its revolutionary expertise-discovery solution that helps enterprises and their employees understand who knows what in their organizations. By helping people find the right colleagues at the right times, WhoKnows accelerates collaboration and productivity across the organization, from research and product development to customer service and sales, from executive leaders to entry-level employees.
"We're honored to be considered a company to watch this year by AlwaysOn," said Chris Macomber, CEO of WhoKnows. "Every enterprise acknowledges that its employees are its most strategic asset yet, in reality, knows very little about their true expertise or capabilities. WhoKnows empowers employees to learn and share knowledge to fuel innovation and growth, and is fundamentally transforming the way enterprise collaboration is done today."
WhoKnows and the OnDemand Companies to Watch will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnDemand event on June 4, 2014 at Draper University in San Mateo, California.
