Innovation, new ideas and thinking "outside the box" are what has always been the force behind technology from the first time someone decided to use a round stone to create a wheel. As was before, so it is today that technology is still the forefront of industry and it is therefore a safe bet that the thrust of job growth in tech sector will continue. Even in today's slow economy there are tho
se companies that seem to defy the odds. These are 10 of the fastest growing technology companies today and are a good bet they'll be here for years to come.
First is a company from Atlanta, Georgia, called Innovolt
. It was noted in the recent AABA (Annual American Business Awards) ceremony, which took place in September, with the Fastest-Growing Tech Company of the Year
title, also called the Bronze Stevie Award. Innovolt
is an industry-leading provider of proven intelligent electronics management technology, which touts to guard against 99.5% of power disturbances. Equipment provided by Innovolt promises us less damages to equipment of all kinds as a result of of brown outs and power surges.
The next company is obviously Apple whose recent release of their new iPhone has caused another stock overload over the last few weeks. While iPhone is facing a lot of criticism, orders already surpassed the 2. 5M figure. Apple, though, is just one proof to the expected continuous job growth in technology over the next few years. There are also other companies that prove this fact beyond doubt.
When you think of technology your mind may bring images of gadgets and weird machinery, but it is the social network called "LinkedIn" was voted as the number one tech company by Forbes
in May, 2012. LinkedIn may not have any gadgets but they are definitely at the forefront of job growth within the tech world of social media. Thousands of people use it every day to post, find or apply for jobs in technology and other fields. LinkedIn is currently the second most-popular social network in the US, after the mighty Facebook.
Forbes list, which came out sometime in May, 2012, was comprised of 25 of the top technology companies. Notably, the winner of the Bronze Stevie Award wasn't even on the list, which might make one wonder how could Forbes miss a company that received such a prestigious award in few months time? The answer to that is not known. Nevertheless, it is a proven fact that Innovolt job growth is a very rapid one.
Looking at the Forbes list (which features Apple as No. 2), it is also important to note that Qlik Technologies
is the only "pure software" company in the top ten, with Red Hat and Solarwinds pushed down the order. The outsourcing giant Cognizant Technology Solutions
makes an amazing tenth-in-a-row appearance on the list. Athenahealth
, which is a cloud based healthcare service company, and insurance application provider Ebix
are placed at fourth and six places respectively, while Equinix
, a database giant is sandwiched in between. Two hardware companies, namely the Aruba Networks
, and the Riverbed Technology
represent the hardware sector , or, to be precise, the wireless and networking equipment niches respectively. After acquiring the Kodak Gallery following the announced bankruptcy, a photo sharing service, Shutterfly made a surprising appearance, locking to top ten of the Forbes list.
There are other companies that represent the evidence of the constant job growth in tech, but the ten examples above (eleven, including Innovolt ) are the most notable achievements of the technology sector in the recent year.
