PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Inc. magazine today announced the honorees of the Inc. 500|5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy — America's independent entrepreneurs.

Philadelphia-based technology company IT Solutions, ranked No. 4659 on the 2014 list with a 3-year growth of 53 percent — marking its 7th year as an Inc. 500|5000 honoree.

Less than 20 percent of honorees made the distinct honor as a 5-year selection. IT Solutions falls into this prestigious category as a 7-time honoree.  And of the 5,000 privately held companies ranked in 2014, only 136 are located in the greater Philadelphia area. 

"To rank on the Inc. 500|5000 year after year in such a competitive space is a great honor and a sure sign that we're doing things right," said Ted Swanson, CEO of IT Solutions.

IT Solutions, a 100 percent employee-owned company, was named a Top 100 Managed Service Provider in the world and recently ranked one of Philadelphia's Best Places to work. 

"None of this could have been achieved without the long-term trust and loyalty of our dedicated client base and the hard work of our excellent staff," Swanson added.

The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino's Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members

"What surprises me, even though I know it's coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn't change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship."

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 15 through 17, 2014 in Phoenix. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Michael Dell, Martha Stewart, host of the CNBC show "The Profit" Marcus Lemonis, Container Store Founder and CEO Kip Tindell, and Chobani Founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
