The Visionary Award provides recognition for software with the potential to transform how business consumes technology.
Adept's mobility framework allows enterprises to deliver services to mobile workers and customers by connecting smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices to corporate data held in Progress OpenEdge and other databases.
Accepting the award in Las Vegas, Adept CEO Steve Clark said, "Although mobility is critical to business success, many enterprises are struggling to cope with the trend to BYOD.
Adept's mobility framework provides an innovative solution by recognising that a 'one size fits all' approach won't work and instead allows applications to take advantage of the device-specific features that are driving momentum in the BYOD market."
In Australia, customers of Adept's mobility technology include Nestle Purina and the Craig Mostyn Group.
