FAQ

What is the methodology for determining the winners and ranking?

We consider and evaluate nominated companies, last year's Cloud 100 and Rising Stars, and recognized category leaders.

There are four factors we weigh in the evaluation process:

Estimated valuation (30%): Based on third-party data providers, an estimate of valuation is determined. In some cases, this estimate is a range rather than a specific number.

Operating metrics (20%):
As part of the nomination process, ranges are collected on metrics like revenue and growth.

People & culture (15%): Based on third-party data providers, each company is evaluated on both their size (e.g., # of people, growth in # of people) as well as culture.

Market leadership (35%): The official Cloud 100 judge panel, comprised primarily of public Cloud CEOs, provides their qualitative input and assessment of the companies’ market leadership in various Cloud sectors.

These factors, and the relevant weights, are used to select, score, and rank the winners for the Cloud 100.
