Network Appliance Ranked in DM Review’s Top 100 Companies List for Fifth Straight Year
Sunnyvale, Calif. - November 18, 2004
-- Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP) was honored by DM
Review as one of the top 100 companies in the business intelligence
space, as determined by DM Review readers. This marks the fifth
consecutive year that the innovative storage leader has appeared on
the list. The DM Review 100 ranking is based upon product quality,
market share, and overall customer satisfaction.
DM Review will highlight the company in its
December 2004 edition with an interview with Daniel J. Warmenhoven,
CEO at Network Appliance.
"Over the last year, enterprise customers have
embraced our Storage Grid vision and recognized the need for
storage solutions that manage, store, access, and protect their
different categories of data," said Patrick Rogers, vice president
of Solution and Alliance Marketing at Network Appliance. "This
continued recognition by DM Review further validates how NetApp
solutions solve customers' management needs for tier-one data
application environments plus address their backup, archival,
restore, and reference data challenges."
DM Review 100 is determined based on the
results of a product usage and vendor rating survey of readers
conducted over the Web by The Gantry Group LLC. Survey respondents
were presented with a questionnaire that examined more than 225
vendors in nine product categories. Respondents were asked to rank
on a scale of 1 to 4 (1 = poor, 4 = excellent) each vendor whose
products are in use in their organizations in each of the nine
categories. Respondents were also asked to rank each vendor for
overall customer service and satisfaction.
