Datavail Named to 2018 Inc. 5000 List of the Fastest Growing Private Companies

Recognized for the seventh year in a row

NEW YORK, August 15, 2018 – For the seventh consecutive year, Datavail, a leading provider of managed services for applications, business intelligence and databases, has made the 2018 Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies in America. Datavail was ranked 2,711 on this year’s list. A mere three and a half percent of companies have made the list seven times.

The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“It’s an honor to be part of this prestigious list for the seventh year in a row,” said Mark Perlstein, President and CEO of Datavail. “We’re seeing continued growth by broadening our offerings as a result of our recent acquisitions, allowing us to go to market faster and serve more 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.

Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 15) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.
