SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- 11/19/2004 -- Cyclone Commerce was honored last night at The Governor’s Celebration of Innovation Awards dinner by receiving the Innovator of the Year award.

Last night’s celebration honored companies in four categories, IBM, General Dynamics, Kinectic Muscles and Cyclone Commerce.

As a result, some of the most well-recognized brands across the globe are using Cyclone solutions to manage critical business processes in a fundamentally different way: at the edge of their enterprise where they can act in real time, gaining competitive advantage and driving revenue.”

Cyclone’s 2,100 customers are some of the most well-recognized companies, including 3 of the top 4 national retailers, 30 top suppliers of consumer packaged goods, the top 10 pharmaceutical manufacturers, all of the top healthcare distributors, 3 of the world’s top 4 logistics providers, the world’s top 2 computer manufacturers, the top 3 electronics distributors, 2 of the world’s largest automotive manufacturers and the world’s largest investment provider.
