Forbes Methodology:
One metric never says it all. For the Most Promising list, Forbes strove for a holistic gauge of young, privately-held companies, trying to pin down their trajectories by looking at a slew of variables. Over the course of six months, Forbes reviewed thousands of applications. The final assessment is based on growth (both in sales and hiring), quality of management team and investors, margins, market size and key partnerships. Forbes relied on New York-based data firm CB Insights to mine millions of online documents and extract such company-specific data as hiring, customer wins, partner signings, product sentiment and financing information. That information is automatically married with industry data to score each company. The Forbes team further evaluated the companies according to strength of management teams, quality of investors, past growth, product strength and market potential to produce a final list and rankings.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
