As Mohana Dissanayake, partner at Deloitte & Touche LLP explained, "Software, which accounts for nearly two of every three companies on the list, continues to produce some of the most exciting technologies of the 21st century, including innovations in artificial intelligence, predictive analytics and robotics. This year's ranking demonstrates what is likely a national phenomenon, where many companies from all parts of America are transforming the way we do business by combining breakthrough research and development, entrepreneurship and rapid growth."
Florian Leibert, CEO at Mesosphere, attributes 2,736 percent revenue growth to the enterprise shift to hybrid cloud, multi-cloud, and edge computing, and mainstream adoption of open source technologies such as Kubernetes, TensorFlow, Spark, Cassandra, Kafka, Elastic, and Jupyter.
