Lonely at the Top? Evolven in Red Herring's Top 100 Technology Companies


While nothing matters more to us than having our customers think we are awesome – it's great to get outside validation about how we are doing. Each year since 1995, Red Herring has been selecting the most exciting and promising start-ups and "scale ups".

Red Herring reviewed many applications from a large initial list, selecting the most innovative technology vendors. We are incredibly excited and honored to be included.

IT Operations Leaders Looking for New Ways to Deliver Value

Red Herring magazine highlighted the "Top 100 Technology Companies" published in April 2014, stating: "Evolven applied a new analytics approach to resolve change and configuration challenges and dramatically minimize the risk of downtime and slash incident investigation time. Evolven's IT Operations Analytics help accelerate incident resolution, avoid harmful and risky changes, and assess and optimize IT operations performance."

What's Customers are Saying About Evolven?

The VSE Corporation installed Evolven's IT Operations Analytics application and had a complete operational system up and running in less than one day, above VSE's initial requirements. VSE Corporation focuses on improving governmental systems and is located in Alexandria, VA.

Dave Chivers, VP and CIO of VSE Corporation, says, "Using Evolven we're able to know exactly what has changed in our environment, investigate incident root-cause, maintain environment consistency, validate changes, and eliminate configuration drift. As a Federal Contractor supporting the Federal Government, VSE competes all procurements, and during the procurement process we have found that Evolven was the best value for the services that it provides compared to other vendors with similar applications."

Poised for Industry Disruption

Evolven's IT Operations Analytics provides intelligent answers to key IT operations challenges: how to accelerate incident resolution, how to avoid harmful and risky changes, and how to assess and optimize IT operations performance. 

"Evolven's solution turns a pile of data into actionable insights," says Rona Segev, a General partner at PITANGO. Pitango decided to invest in Evolven due to a strong and growing market need, unique technology that can really disrupt the industry and a strong founding and management team. "Evolven is really at the beginning of a strong growth curve. With dozens of blue chip customers already on board, technology that is way ahead compared to any other company in the market and strong and growing market demand — we believe Evolven is well poised to disrupt the industry."
