Electric Cloud Selected as a Red Herring Top 100 North America Winner

Electric Cloud, the leader for accelerating Continuous Delivery success, today announced its selection as a Red Herring Top 100 America award winner. Red Herring selects 100 companies from more than 3,000 tech startups financed each year in the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring and its editors were among the first to recognize companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Skype, Salesforce.com and YouTube. Electric Cloud plays a pivotal role in how organizations automate and speed software development through the practice of Continuous Delivery.

"In 2014, selecting the top 100 achievers was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the top 100 winners. We believe Electric Cloud embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Electric Cloud should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong."

Electric Cloud is one of the leading companies helping software organizations build better software faster through the Continuous Delivery application automation process. Often referred to as the "new Agile," Continuous Delivery provides transformational benefits that drive strategic value through more predictable, fast and quality software releases. It automates the software delivery process and directly addresses the quality, reliability and risk issues that arise from the drive to release software faster than ever before. Continuous Delivery helps organizations embrace and manage the increasing pace of change, and empowers software teams to respond to a range of business issues by shipping applications quickly - when the business needs it.

"Being recognized by Red Herring as one of the top tech firms is a tribute to the hard work our employees, partners and customers put into streamlining the process of building, testing and deploying high quality software," said Steve Brodie, CEO for Electric Cloud. "As software impacts more aspects of everyday life, and plays an increasingly critical role in organizational success, we will continue to see Agile, DevOps and Continuous Delivery processes mature to make software delivery fast, predictable and automated."

Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation and intellectual property, management quality, business model, customer footprint and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America.
