Top RIA Providers to Compete for "AJAX World Best of Show Awards"

Delegates will have the opportunity to cast their vote for their favorite AJAX & RIA technology providers

On October 20-22, in the San Jose Fairmont Hotel, California, AJAXWorld 2008 RIA Sponsors and Exhibitors will be viewed as the leading companies driving the future of Enterprise Rich Internet Applications. This year at AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo 2008 West, delegates will have the opportunity to cast their vote for their favorite AJAX, RIA and Web 2.0 technology provider.

The business value of RIAs is very clear: aesthetics do matter and users would like a pleasant experience. That's why industry experts are arguing that enterprise IT executives and managers now realize that endorsing Web 2.0 is going to happen via RIAs. Improving the user experience and adding interactive visualization is just the starting point. RIAs also offer scalability, reliability, performance, and security on par with what they are used to with old client-server technology.

Delegates in San Jose will have the opportunity to cast their vote for their favorite AJAX, RIA and Web 2.0 technology provider in a range of categories, including:

  • Best Overall Enterprise RIA Product
  • Best AJAX Toolkit
  • Best Comet-Based Solution
  • Best Flex-Based Application
  • Best Silverlight Application
  • Best JFX-Based Applicatiion
  • Best iPhone Application
  • Best MashupTool
  • Best Open API


AJAX, RIA, and Web 2.0 are experiencing hyper growth with opportunities for vendors supporting these technologies advancing in lock-step!

Don’t let your competition be the only one showcasing their latest AJAX, RIA, and Web 2.0 offerings! Exhibit at this year’s event and deliver your message in a way that is striking and unforgettable by taking advantage of SYS-CON’s unmatched high-impact, result-driven sponsorship programs. This is your opportunity to meet face-to-face with today’s top industry buyers with large financial commitments. For three days, the San Jose Fairmont Hotel will be filled with movers & shakers from Fortune 500/1000 companies who are exploring and deciding who their favorite AJAX, RIA, and Web 2.0 provider will be at this year’s AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo 2008 West.
