Devo Technology Earns a Spot on Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies
Attributes 775% Revenue Growth to the Accelerating Demand for Enterprises to Maximize the Value of Their Machine Data
Cambridge, Mass, November 7, 2019 — Devo Technology, the data analytics company that unlocks the full value of machine data for the world’s most instrumented enterprises, today announced it ranked #151 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America, now in its 25th year. Devo grew 775% during this period.
Walter Scott, Devo chief executive officer, credits the company’s exceptional revenue growth with the need for enterprises to take a data- and automation-driven approach to cyber security and IT operations and the lack of existing solutions that can meet these demands at scale. He said, “With the accelerating pace of digital transformation and the shift to cloud, operational teams must change the way they use data, automation and analytics to secure and optimize their customers’ data and digital experiences. Devo delivers this value to many of the world’s largest organizations.”
“This year marks the 25th anniversary of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, so we are especially pleased to announce and congratulate the 2019 winners,” said Sandra Shirai, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP, and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “Once again, we saw innovation across the board, with software companies continuing their dominance of the top ten. It’s always inspiring to see how the Fast 500 companies are transforming business and the world we live and work in.”
“As technology innovation trends towards ‘everything as a service,’ it’s no surprise that software companies dominate the winners list yet again this year,” said Mohana Dissanayake, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP, and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications, within Deloitte’s audit and assurance practice. “What’s exciting about celebrating 25 years of the Tech Fast 500 is we now have a quarter century of innovation stories to draw and reflect upon. These are the companies that push boundaries, help organizations become more efficient and productive, and ultimately enable businesses to drive growth and revenue. We congratulate all the well-deserving winners.”
