Read post

SilverStripe, together with fifty-three other New Zealand tech companies, has made it to the 2015 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific index, which ranks businesses based on their revenue growth over the past three years.

SilverStripe has appeared in the Fast 500 index multiple times. We first appeared in the index in 2008 at the 396th position, and again in 2009 at the 235th place. The company was also present in 2010 and 2011. The 2015 index places SilverStripe in the 462th position with 94% revenue growth. “We are excited to be in the Fast 500 again, although with our diverse mix of professional services, platform, and open-source software, it is tricky to measure growth accurately,” said SilverStripe CEO Sam Minnée. “It is great to see so many Kiwi tech companies included in the list. Special congratulations to Little Giant, Mint Design,  Spotlight Reporting, and Optimal Workshop.”

SilverStripe was founded in 2000 by three school friends who were passionate about the limitless possibilities of the web. Together Sam Minnée, Tim Copeland and Sigurd Magnusson brought to life the SilverStripe CMS. SilverStripe CMS was open sourced in 2006 to encourage collaboration from developers, designers and digital marketers all over the world. Today, there are over 21,000 members in the SilverStripe open source community. This year also marked the milestone of opening our first Northern Hemisphere office in London to add to offices across New Zealand and Australia.  

We’ve been continuing our mission to empower great web teams by creating platforms for change. This year, we’ve been focused on refining SilverStripe Platform, our Platform as a Service that allows web teams to work free from distractions. SilverStripe Platform was created to support digital agencies using SilverStripe software. The platform allows web teams to focus on building great applications, while being supported by our experts who specialise in cloud hosting, performance and security. SilverStripe Platform was born from our work with the NZ Government Common Web Platform. As these platforms continue to grow, we’re looking forward to more listings in the Fast 500 Asia Pacific Index.
