It’s that time of year again. No, not back-to-school, although it is that as well.
It’s time for Inc. Magazine to reveal their prestigious Inc. 5000 list for 2021. Refresher – it’s the list of America’s fastest-growing privately held businesses. See who made it – here.
Dizzion was honored to achieve list recognition for the fifth year in a row. To put that in perspective, there have only been 322 companies to make the five-timers club since Inc. Magazine began publishing the list in 1982. With 5,000 companies named every year, that is the possibility of 195,000 individual companies making the list to date – if each was named to the list only once. We know this is not the case, but let’s say there have been 50,000 unique companies who have achieved Inc. 5000 status to date. That means Dizzion would be in an elite group of 0.6% of all Inc. 5000 members.
Now, how many of the 322 five-timers club members have made it five years in a row? The data, unfortunately, is not tracked and/or readily available at the time of this blog posting. However, our best guess is that is has to be less than 50 companies.
Long story long, Dizzion has accomplished something special in 2021. Steve Prather, Dizzion CEO, put it this way in the official press release issued by Dizzion via PRNewswire/Cision.
“Each time Dizzion has achieved Inc. 5000 status over the past five years has been a momentous occasion, but this milestone is special. In 2020, the world faced a pandemic that would permanently change the way we all work. As a provider of managed cloud desktops, the OneDizzion team stepped up to support an unprecedented influx of customer needs, rapidly transitioning global organizations to a state of successful remote work. Inc. 5000 2021 represents a tenacious team effort, a pressure-tested offering, and a lasting global contribution to organizations of all sizes: remote work can work and work well.”
Even though we, as a society, are still battling our way out from under the weight of the global pandemic, today’s recognition gives Dizzion the chance to briefly look back on 2020 with a sense of accomplishment. It also provides a public forum to offer our sincere thanks to the unparalleled OneDizzion team and our strategic alliance partners.
We preach the “Tenacious D” commitment to our customers and each other – to go above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome at all times. In 2020, OneDizzion was tested to demonstrate how Tenacious D manifests itself in real, pressure-packed situations. When the government shut-down mandates hit offices worldwide, tens of thousands of end-users came to Dizzion for remote-work migration, to be completed within a matter of weeks. Most also came with specific security, compliance and performance needs. This meant late nights. Long weekends. Unique customer commitments. Patience and a passion for people. OneDizzion delivered, helping maintain business continuity for our customers in unprecedented times.
We learned a lot about our company, our people, our customers, our partners (VMware, IBM Cloud, Five9, Rackspace, Equinix, Pure Storage, NVIDIA, Microsoft, and others), and our end-user cloud platform. These lessons are valuable as we move forward, on to supporting what projects to be a hybrid remote work model for most organizations for the foreseeable future. IT teams will be dealing with unpredictable, decentralized work environments and end-user activity while battling waste and serious cybersecurity threats. Dizzion will be right there alongside them, delivering cloud desktops that perform regardless of where an end-user chooses to work or what device they use to get things done.
Together, we will continue to redefine the way the world works in this new world of hybrid work and live up to our tag line, making “Work from anywhere, business as usual”.
