NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sisense, disrupting the BI market by simplifying business analytics for complex data, is named to the Forbes 2017 Cloud 100 list, the definitive list of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world, published by Forbes in collaboration with Bessemer Venture Partners. Sisense will be celebrated tonight in San Francisco at The Cloud 100 Celebration, an exclusive event hosted by Bessemer Venture Partners, Forbes and Salesforce Ventures.
“We’re honored to once again be recognized among the most promising and innovative cloud companies, affirming our achievements in revealing BI insights to everyone via a SaaS platform,” said Amir Orad, CEO of Sisense. “As more and more industries rely on the cloud for its clear cost and agility benefits, Sisense is at the forefront of that innovation, simplifying every step of the BI process by bringing data insights and analytics to our customers when and where they need it.”
As part of the rigorous selection process for the Forbes 2017 Cloud 100, Forbes’ data partner, Bessemer Venture Partners, received hundreds of submissions from the top cloud startups. With that data, the Forbes Cloud 100 judge panel, made up of a majority of public cloud company CEOs, was then responsible for selecting and ranking the top 100 companies from all over the world. The evaluation process involved four factors: estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), people & culture (15%) and market leadership (35%), which the judge panel then weighed to select, score and rank the winners.
“Our inaugural Cloud 100 list showed the tech and venture capital community just how many standout private cloud companies there are to watch, and this year’s list is no exception,” said Forbes editor of the Cloud 100 list Alex Konrad. “Forbes has a keen eye for businesses, and combining that with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures’ deep knowledge of the cloud industry, any company’s inclusion on the Forbes 2017 Cloud 100 list is cause to celebrate.”
“These companies are leading the cloud technology revolution!” said Byron Deeter, a top cloud investor and partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. “The founders and teams behind the Forbes 2017 Cloud 100 companies are of another caliber and we are beyond excited to celebrate the hard work and enormous value these companies are creating as they propel the trillion-dollar software industry forward.”
“The business opportunity for cloud computing is tremendous as the spend on cloud computing and the rate of adoption continues to grow and advance the ecosystem,” said John Somorjai, EVP Salesforce Ventures and Corporate Development. “We’re thrilled to highlight the potential of these top-tier private companies in the field and see where they take their businesses and the economies around the world.”
In addition to the Forbes 2017 Cloud 100 recognition, Sisense was recently named a “Visionary” in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for BI and Analytics Platforms; included in Deloitte’s Regional Tech Fast 50 list; and was ranked as one of the top Big Data companies to work for by Forbes contributor, Louis Columbus, based on Glassdoor rankings.
