ThoughtSpot grew 561% during this period.
ThoughtSpot’s chief executive officer, Sudheesh Nair, credits product innovation and customer success with the company’s 561% growth. He said, “The pandemic has challenged all organizations to be nimble, operate remotely and embrace location-agnostic technologies like the cloud. Like many, our customers’ needs changed significantly overnight, and we responded by accelerating the release of ThoughtSpot Cloud, our first SaaS product, by a full year to help brands who unleash the power of their cloud data like never before. The value we deliver our customers is the only reason we’re able to receive this recognition, and I’m incredibly grateful for their trust, courage, and partnership as we work together to build a more fact-driven world through data.”
“For more than 25 years, we’ve been honoring companies that define the cutting edge and this year’s Technology Fast 500 list is proof positive that technology — from software and digital media platforms, to biotech — truly does permeate so many facets of our lives,” said Paul Silverglate, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “We congratulate this year’s winners, especially during a time when innovation is needed more than ever to address the monumental challenges posed by the pandemic.”
“Each year the Technology Fast 500 listing validates how important technology innovation is to our daily lives. It was interesting to see this year that while software companies continued to dominate, biotech companies rose to the top of the winners list for the first time, demonstrating that new categories of innovation are accelerating in the pursuit of making life easier, safer and more productive,” said Mohana Dissanayake, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP, and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications, within Deloitte’s audit and assurance practice. “We extend sincere congratulations to these well-deserved winners — who all embody a spirit of curiosity, and a never-ending commitment to making technology advancements possible.”
