WillowTree Apps Recognized for Third Consecutive Year on Inc. 500|5000 List of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies; Jumps 524 Positions Over 2013 Ranking

Mobility Leader Takes #454 Spot on 2014 List; Clients Including AOL, Johnson & Johnson and GE Turn to WillowTree for Mobile Business Strategy Expertise

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- Leading U.S. digital transformation provider, WillowTree Apps, today announced their ranking at #454 on the 2014 Inc. 500|5000 list, an exclusive annual ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. 2014 marks the third consecutive year of WillowTree's inclusion on the distinguished list, with the agency moving up 524 positions over its 2013 ranking.

Organizations continue to recognize the power of mobile as a business game-changer. However, few organizations have the internal resources required to successfully develop a mobile strategy and bring it to life with innovative design and development talent. Earlier this year in its report entitled "Navigating the Fast-Moving Landscape of Digital Implementation Partners," Forrester Research cited WillowTree Apps as a leading "digital specialist" -- an organization with a "focus on technology solutions in mobility, social media, analytics, or cloud."

"WillowTree's continued rapid growth is testament to the fact that organizations in industries such as healthcare and media and entertainment, especially mobile video delivery, as well as specific enterprise functions like sales force enablement and field service support, recognize huge efficiency gains and return on investment from mobile," said Tobias Dengel, CEO of WillowTree Apps.

"We thank our clients and partners for their continued trust in WillowTree and are very proud of our team and of this third-time honor from Inc. magazine," added Michael Prichard, WillowTree's Founder and CTO. "We are in an unprecedented time where companies and organizations can truly engage, albeit through apps and connected devices, with their customers and work forces to make their lives better. We are seeing this in all sectors including Healthcare and Enterprise."

The 2014 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 20 to November 30), is the most competitive crop in the list's history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 516%. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

CloudEXPO Stories
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
