Sisense Climbs Up the Cloud 100 Five Years in a Row

2020 Marks a Year of Customer Choice & Recognition

New York, NY — (September 16, 2020) — Sisense, the world’s leading analytics platform for builders, today revealed it has been named to the annual Forbes 2020 Cloud 100, the most prestigious ranking of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world. Published by Forbes in partnership with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures, the annual list spotlights some of the most promising, fast-growing cloud technology companies who are reshaping their respective industries. Sisense makes its fifth consecutive appearance on the Forbes 2020 Cloud 100 this year, ranking (#31).

Sitting atop the Cloud100 is partner and cloud data platform leader, Snowflake (just hours before its IPO). Sisense customers like Gong, Gitlab, and Tanium are recognized; as well as  UiPath, Outreach, and Seismic, reflecting Sisense’s role as the underlying analytics technology for many of the top cloud companies in the world. 

“Climbing high on the Cloud 100 five years in a row demonstrates Sisense’s unstoppable commitment to innovation. It’s also a mark of excellence recognized by everyone in the cloud industry. We couldn’t be more honored,” said Amir Orad, CEO of Sisense. “This recognition not only reflects our team’s obsession with customer success but ensures we’re helping all of our customers go beyond dashboards to infuse analytics at the right place and right time, every time. To see so many of them (customers) join us on the Cloud 100 simply validates the role that analytics plays in business transformation.“

As part of the rigorous selection process for the Forbes 2020 Cloud 100, Bessemer Venture Partners received submissions from hundreds of cloud startups. Elected by a panel of judges representing the top public cloud companies, the 2020 Cloud 100 recipients were ranked based on four factors: market leadership (35%), estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), and people & culture (15%). 

“The private cloud ecosystem continues to mature in light of rapid digital transformations, making the competition to land one of the coveted spots on the Cloud 100 list steeper than ever,” said Byron Deeter, a top cloud investor, and partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. “Private cloud valuations are getting bigger as the market’s appetite for cloud continues to grow. In fact, our 2020 Cloud 100 includes over 87 private cloud unicorns! These companies represent the absolute best in cloud computing today, and they will most certainly follow in the footsteps of our esteemed Cloud 100 alumni. Congratulations to these cloud leaders!”
