SevOne Makes the INC5000 List – the rest of the story

Last week, INC Magazine announced the INC5000 list of fastest growing private companies in the U.S. SevOne made the list with a growth rate of 346% since 2010. But the excitement isn't limited to being part of the INC5000. Let's review the last few years, shall we?

In 2010, SevOne was beginning to outgrow our old office in Delaware Technology Park and was about to move into our new Delaware office – the only SevOne office in North America at the time. The SevOne Culture of Awesome had less than 100 employees. Organizations like ACS, now Xerox Services, and Comcast were SevOne customers.

SevOne started catching the attention of Delaware Governor Jack Markell, who visited in July 2011. When Brian Harvell joined SevOne as Vice President of Product Engineering that August, he blogged about his excitement to board the SevOne rocket ship.  That's exactly what it's been!

In some ways, SevOne's speed at scale was still the network performance management space's "best kept secret." In November SevOne announced expansion to Australasia, Southeast Asia and Latin America and a month later, TORA Trading, a leading provider of advanced trading technology and financial services based in Japan, chose SevOne.  Delaware Senator Chris Coons visited in January 2012. And then in May, Gartner named SevOne a "Cool Vendor."

In January 2013, SevOne posted a sixth consecutive year of record revenue growth and Bain Capital invested $150 million. SevOne expanded its footprint in North America and opened an office in the Philadelphia neighborhood of Old City that April.

And while the INC5000 profile seen here shows SevOne had just under 300 employees at the end of 2013, SevOne's Culture of Awesome is now almost 400 strong. SevOne opened an office in Boston in January 2014. But the success and excitement is not just about adding people and expanding offices. Some of the world's largest organizations rely on SevOne to monitor their IT infrastructures.

When Bell Mobility chose SevOne Wireless Week wrote an article about how SevOne helped Bell Mobility cut waste. NASDAQ's OMX Group now uses SevOne and the Senior Vice President of Global Infrastructure Services Lou Modano said, "In our business, it's imperative that we understand application traffic and prevent performance issues before they impact critical network services…As we evaluated vendors in this space, we found SevOne had a new way to approach the collection of performance data and prediction of potential service degradation."

And last but certainly not least – in June of this year, SevOne announced an industry first Performance Log Appliance (PLA). The SevOne PLA provides real-time analytics on large volumes of unstructured log data, enabling a better understanding of behavior of users, customers, applications and network and IT infrastructure. Feeling overwhelmed? Imagine what it would be like to dig through log data – for hours. The SevOne PLA makes it easy to identify problems.

Information overload? I know, but the INC5000 list doesn't tell the whole story. And the information — well, it was too good not to share.
