op5 AB selected as a 2012 Red Herring Top 100 Europe
Amsterdam, Netherlands - Red Herring announced its Top 100 award in recognition of the leading private companies from Europe, celebrating these start-ups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring’s Top 100 Europe list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across Europe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe op5 AB embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. op5 AB should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been.”
"Being among the Top100 companies in Europe is of course a tremendous honour and a great achievement from the whole team at op5, our customers and business partners, said Jan Josephson, CEO op5 AB. “The op5 solution is based upon active and professional users facing real challenges everyday and solving it with op5 Monitor. We see a tremendous growth opportunity as the challenge of quality control on applications and infrastructure, cloud and SaaS services continues to surge creating a direct demand for proactive unified monitoring.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of start-ups’ relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in Europe.
