Host Analytics Named Red Herring Global 100 Award Winner
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – December 13, 2011 - Host Analytics, the leading provider of SaaS corporate performance management (CPM) solutions, today announced it was named a Red Herring Global 100 award winner. Red Herring’s Global 100 list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Google, Skype, Baidu, Salesforce.com, YouTube, eBay and many others would change the way we live and work.
“Choosing the best out of the previous two years was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, chairman of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed down our list from 1,100 potential companies to 100 winners. It was an extremely difficult process. Host Analytics should be extremely proud of its achievement; the competition for the Top 100 was fierce. The Top 100 Global are truly the best of the best.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list an invaluable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the greatest business opportunities from around the world.
“Our customers, technology and corporate growth are the elements that continue to be recognized in the SaaS CPM business and beyond,” said Jon Kondo, CEO at Host Analytics. “Host Analytics has maintained its place at the top of its industry thanks to prestigious industry accolades, such as being named a Red Herring Global 100 award winner. This honor has brought tremendous validation to our company’s vision and that validation will no doubt continue throughout 2012.”
