Plutora joins the prestigious Inc. 5000 for first time in 2018Reading time 2 minutes
The past few weeks have been filled with recognition and accolades for the Plutora team and the hard work they have put in to developing the platform. From being awarded a top three vendor designation in the EMA DevOps 2020 for release management, to our inclusion in the Forrester New Wave Report for value stream management, the technology we have built has taken center stage.
But the momentum doesn’t end there. In our third piece of significant recognition in as many weeks, Plutora made its debut on the Inc. 5000 list which features the fastest-growing private companies in the country. Plutora came in at 530 overall, recording a growth rate of 943%. Looking at the numbers more closely and by specific industry, Plutora was ranked #60 out of a total of 443 software vendors.
The Inc. 5000 list was started in 1982 and has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success. The 2018 Inc. 5000 was ranked according to the percentage revenue growth when comparing 2014 to 2018. Companies on the list have to be US based, privately held, for profit and independent.
As a first-time honoree, we are in very good company as the likes of Microsoft, Dell, LinkedIn and Yelp were included in the Inc. 5000 list as they climbed the ladder of success and became household names.
The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth rate of 538.2%, and a median rate of 171.8%. It’s been more competitive than ever, with total aggregate revenues of $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664.095 jobs over the past three years.
This recognition, alongside other companies who have become hugely successful, shows just how far Plutora has come. Our growth and inclusion on the Inc. 5000 also reinforce what we are seeing in conversations with customers and prospects. Every company is becoming a software company and consumers are demanding better, faster access to goods, information and services. This pushes organizations to become better at releasing software to the market. Better means more frequently and with higher quality to insure the best experience for their customers. That’s what we are here for – to help enterprises do that; help them to become Software Juggernauts.
We plan to continue dedicating our time and resources to helping them, be one step ahead of the next release. We are excited to be number 530 on the 2018 Inc. 5000., but we have big plans and will keep pushing towards them in the next year.
