ARM Recognized in Forbes’ Top 10 ‘World's Most Innovative Companies’

September 11, 2012

What: ARM has been recognized alongside other ARM ecosystem partners, as one of the world’s most innovative companies by Forbes Magazine. ARM ranks #10 alongside enterprise software partner, RedHat (#4) and industry leaders in cloud computing, (#1) and (#3).                        

The list is based on a methodology that projects a company’s income from existing businesses, plus anticipated growth from those businesses, and analyses the net present value of those cash flows.

Why: The success of ARM and the ARM partner ecosystem is based on the innovative ARM business model. Alongside the highly scalable ARM architecture, this inclusive model enables ARM partners to drive sustained innovation across multiple market segments.

This includes the mobile industry - an ecosystem and culture that is now driving the post-PC era of computing, as consumers demand an always-on, always-connected and always-ready mobile experience. Increasingly, it also includes enterprise and cloud oriented technologies that are beginning to utilize energy-efficient, high-performance technology from ARM to innovate the server market.

Lastly, innovation based on ARM technology is driving the realization of the Internet of Things (IoT). ARM recently established the first industry forum to help shape this fast moving market. The forum aims to combat what they describe as the ‘Internet of Silos’ - an unconnected world with less value to both consumers and businesses. The forum will drive a blueprint for how technologies associated with the Internet of Things should and could work together to support the 50-billion intelligent devices due to be connected to the Internet by 2020.
