Gigya Selected by AlwaysOn as an OnHollywood 100 Winner
Recognized for Creating Technology Innovations in Digital
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/22/12 -- Gigya, the leading
provider of social infrastructure for business, today announced that
it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnHollywood 100 winners.
Inclusion in the OnHollywood 100 signifies leadership amongst its
peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely
to disrupt existing and entrenched Hollywood entertainment. Gigya 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.
Gigya and the OnHollywood 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's
sixth annual OnHollywood on October 29th and 30th, 2012, at the
Museum of flying in Santa Monica, CA.
This two-day executive gathering highlights the significant trends
affecting digital entertainment. Disruptive technology is forcing big
changes in Hollywood: new contracts, new genres, new stars. As the
behemoth industry steps into the digital era, entertainment execs
will be paying even closer attention to the global Silicon Valley --
especially the startups that are writing the rules and creating the
tools for the digital entertainment age.
"This year's OnHollywood 100 represents an explosive drive toward
device-independent consumer-focused entertainment. The digital
entertainment pioneers of the 1990s have paved the way for a
sophisticated group of entertainment producers, who are harnessing
the power of social, mobile, and the Internet to give consumers
exactly what they want, when they want it," says Tony Perkins,
founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "Now, the entire entertainment world
has broken free of the establishment and is bringing quality
television, film, and music to a global audience that's on the move
and hungry for its next innovation."
The OnHollywood 100 winners were selected from among thousands of
domestic and international technology companies nominated by
investors, bankers, journalists, and entertainment industry insiders.

selection process to finalize the 2012 list.
