digiMine Awarded Overall ‘Best of Show’ at Upside Events’ Fourth Annual Preview Fall Media Reception

Quality Demonstrators Made Judging Process Challenging

SAN FRANCISCO—(BUSINESS WIRE) — Oct. 26, 2000 digiMine, Inc., a leading application service provider of business intelligence solutions, was awarded “Best of Show” during Upside Events’ fourth annual Preview Fall media and analyst reception, which took place Tuesday night in New York City on the eve of Internet World Fall 2000. Winners were determined by an anonymous panel of journalists, industry analysts and venture capitalists attending the event, who ranked the products based on product innovation, overall demonstration and the product’s potential benefit to customers. digiMine beat out a field of more than 50 companies on hand to demonstrate their latest products and technologies.

The voting was extremely close, with Sequoia Software, Return Path, Inc. and Expertcity.com winding up the evening in a three-way tie for first runner-up. Asynchrony.com and OpenReach, Inc. were recognized as well, tying for the honor of second runner-up.

“We had many great demonstrators with exciting products this year, and they were well-received by the large and enthusiastic crowd attending Preview Fall,” said Tim Smith, vice president of Upside Events. “The competition for Best of Show was fierce, as evidenced by the ties for the first and second runner-up, but in the end, the judges felt digiMine had what it took to take top honors.”

“Preview Fall is always a great event, and this year was no exception,” said Usama Fayyad, president and CEO of digiMine, Inc. “We were thrilled about being chosen to demonstrate, and to be selected as Best of Show was quite an honor, especially considering the high level of competition at this year’s event. The judges’ recognition of the value of digiMine’s systems and services is highly rewarding.”
