For the third consecutive year, Dataminr has been named to the Forbes 2019 Cloud 100, the definitive ranking of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world, published by Forbes in partnership with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures. 

As part of the rigorous selection process for the Forbes 2019 Cloud 100, the judging panel, made up of public cloud company CEOs, reviewed the data to select, score, and rank the top 100 private cloud companies from all over the world. The evaluation process involved ranking companies across four factors: market leadership (35%), estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), and people & culture (15%).

Ted Bailey, Founder & CEO at Dataminr said, “We’re honored to be included in the Forbes 2019 Cloud 100 list for the third year in a row, alongside many other remarkable organizations forging new pathways in technology that solves real-world problems.  At Dataminr, we believe that AI and real-time, public data can address critical business needs, while also serving a greater public good.”

Dataminr’s advanced AI platform detects the earliest signals on real-time events and risks from within the increasingly diverse and complex landscape of publicly available information. This early detection capability enables more effective risk mitigation strategies, faster response, and better crisis management for organizations across the globe.

“For four years now, we have ranked the best and brightest emerging companies in the cloud sector,” said Alex Konrad, Forbes editor of The Cloud 100. “With so many businesses growing fast in the cloud, from cybersecurity and marketing to data analytics and storage, it’s harder than ever to make the Cloud 100 list – but with more elite company if you do. Congratulations to each of the 2019 Cloud 100 honorees and the 20 Rising Stars honorees poised to join their ranks!”
