Recognized for Innovation in digital media technology

Redwood City, Calif., January 28, 2011Turn, the industry’s only end-to-end platform for managing data-driven digital advertising, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnMedia Top 100 winners.  Inclusion in the OnMedia 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Turn was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.

Turn and the OnMedia 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s fifth annual OnMedia on January 31st, 2011, at The Paley Center for Media, New York.

OnMedia is where Madison Avenue meets Silicon Valley. This two-and-a-half-day executive event features high-level debates on how the Internet is disrupting the world of marketing, branding, advertising, and public relations.

"The make-up of the OnMedia 100 presents a poetic picture of the mega-trends AO's editors see driving the transformation of digital media and entertainment, namely the explosive growth in smart phones, social networking and social commerce, as well as the globalization of entrepreneurship," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn."We also uncovered a new trend that's creating high-growth company opportunity-the emergence of Web analytics as a powerful tool to help advertisers ascertain the 'wisdom of the crowd' and better target their marketing and branding pitches."

The OnMedia 100 winners were selected from more than a thousand U.S. and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and digital media industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team and its partners at SAP, the Blackstone Group, KPMG, Silicon Valley Bank, SNR Denton, SecondMarket, and Bridge Bank, as well as industry experts across the globe scoured the entrepreneurial community to identify the top 100 private digital media companies.
