Datavail Named to 2017 Inc. 5000 List of the Fastest Growing Private Companies

Recognized for the sixth year in a row

Press release: BROOMFIELD, COLO. – For the sixth consecutive year, Datavail, a leading provider of managed services for applications, business intelligence, and databases, has made the 2017 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies in America. Datavail was ranked 4,223 on this year’s list. Only a fraction of companies make the list more than once, with only four percent of companies making the list six times.

In its 36th year, the Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and midsized businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

“It’s an honor to be part of this prestigious list for the sixth year in a row,” said Mark Perlstein, President and CEO of Datavail. We’ve had exciting growth with four acquisitions in the past year, allowing us to go to market more effectively and do more and more for our customers.”

In July, 2016, Datavail acquired Art of BI, an Oracle analytics consulting company focused on OBIEE and Hyperion. In 2017, Datavail acquired three companies, Navantis, a Microsoft Premier Partner based in Toronto, Canada; AdvancedEPM Consulting, an Oracle Platinum Partner focused on Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) solutions; and Accelatis, an application performance management software company.

The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 16) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
