Best Places to work 2013
BOSTON - The Boston Business Journal has named Acquia one of the Best Places to Work in Massachusetts in its eleventh annual regional awards program. The honor recognizes Acquia’s achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.

Acquia was one of over 400 companies to qualify for consideration based on a two-stage nomination process and the results of employee-satisfaction surveys taken throughout March & April.

“Our Best Places to Work event will again recognize the importance of cultivating a great workplace culture as a competitive advantage," said Chris McIntosh, publisher of the Boston Business Journal. "Companies on our list can be justifiably proud of creating a high level of workplace satisfaction during an economy where traditional rewards like big raises and bonuses aren't as easy to give. In good times and in bad, our results validate how the creation of the right corporate culture can create powerful business advantages. Employees are proud to work for companies that are about more than just business.”

The survey project was launched in January by the Boston Business Journal in conjunction with market research firm Quantum Workplace of Omaha, NE. Companies were evaluated on the results of more than 18,000 employee-satisfaction surveys. Employees answered questionnaires that addressed such factors as their pride in the company, company encouragement, support and recognition of achievement and relationships with co-workers and supervisors. The results were analyzed and scored by assigning points to each question.

80 companies total … the top 25 companies in three size categories plus the top 5 in a new category called “PR/Communications” will be awarded during a lively cocktail reception on June 13th at the iconic CitiCenter /Wang Theatre and profiled in a special supplement of the Boston Business Journal on June 14th.

This year's 100 top companies are feeding a burgeoning data macrosphere, propelling the entire computing paradigm into a interdependent, connected, and mobile future.

The fourth annual AlwaysOn OnDemand 100 represents a list of vigorous emerging and mature companies that are going beyond creating new business opportunities. The cloud infrastructure, SaaS, and on-demand marketplace is reinventing computing—how it’s powered, where data is stored, and where and when we access it.

The AlwaysOn editorial team, along with partners at KPMG, Bridge Bank, General Catalyst Partners, Menlo Ventures, GSV Capital, Mayfield Fund, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Intel Capital, New Enterprise Associates, Azure Capital, Allegis Capital, Venrock, InterWest Partners, Illuminate Ventures, Madrona Venture Group, AT&T, Jafco Ventures, Institutional Venture Partners, Oak Investment Partners, Greylock Partners, Andreessen Horowitz, and industry experts across the globe, went out into the entrepreneurial ecosystem to find the top 100 private companies that are disrupting the entire computing paradigm.

These startups are bringing a new world of highly nimble, versatile, and mobile services to everyone participating in the new digital era. While these businesses are transforming the way we interact with computers and computing resources, they are also creating high-growth businesses that offer huge upside potential for investors.

Stable Cloud, Mobile Audience
This year’s OnDemand 100 launches at a time when the entire world is experiencing a shift in the way it relates to technology, information, and media. Only a few short years ago, the cloud was being warily considered as just another clever marketing buzzword being used to describe something that sounded too good to be true. As we look at the top companies on this year’s OnDemand 100, it’s clear that the buzzword has become reality—and lived up to its promise. Cloud infrastructure is expanding into and enhancing every sector of the technology world.

Incredibly intelligent entrepreneurs have taken this concept and turned it into the reality that will carry us into the computing future. Continually enhancing cloud tools, platforms, security, and data storage, management, and delivery, cloud infrastructure companies are becoming the go-to resource for deploying today’s critical business and consumer applications. Whether it’s public, private, or hybrid, the cloud infrastructure companies that are providing the most robust, trustworthy, always-on performance are the ones propelling us into a completely new computing universe.

The robust applications, mobile technology, and on-demand innovations being supported in the cloud are enhancing almost every sector of the online world. We’ve seen the borders being pulled down between desktop, TV, tablet, smartphone, and laptop. And while the amount of data being generated and consumed is continuing to expand almost faster than we can harness its power, the rigorous determination of the OnDemand 100 winners is meeting and exceeding this continual entrepreneurial challenge. The data macrosphere is a reality—a binary organism that’s fueling our creative process and bringing new ideas to fruition. As it grows and expands into every corner of the cloud, the applications it inspires will continue to feed the success of the Global Silicon Valley.

Reimagining the Computing Paradigm
This year’s OnDemand 100 companies, like their predecessors, were selected based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz. As the cloud infrastructure, SaaS, and on-demand community redefines the world of technology, it continues to push the limits of computer power and how data resources are created, stored, and delivered—developing new ideas and creating new companies with outstanding growth potential.

Congratulations to all the 2013 OnDemand 100 winners. These top venture capital-backed on-demand and SaaS companies are taking advantage of an increasingly stable and reliable cloud infrastructure to develop, maintain, and deploy a continuous stream of disruptive technology to every single computer user on the planet. The technology platforms and services represented in this year’s list are feeding a burgeoning data macrosphere, propelling the entire computing paradigm into a interdependent, connected, and mobile future.
