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.

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).

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.
