Acquia Named to Forbes Cloud 100 for 2018

BOSTON -- September 13, 2018 – Digital experience company Acquia has been named to the Forbes 2018 Cloud 100, the definitive list of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world, published by Forbes in collaboration with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures. It’s the third year in a row that Acquia was named to the Cloud 100, coming in at No. 49. Acquia is the only digital experience cloud platform on the list.

“Acquia pioneered open source WCM in the cloud 10 years ago, and continues to power the digital transformation of leading global brands today,” said Michael Sullivan, Acquia CEO. “With Acquia’s cloud platform, our customers and partners are making better use of data to offer personalized experiences across every channel and touchpoint. We’re proud to be among the Forbes Cloud 100 companies that are helping organizations improve their productivity, lower costs, and speed their time to market through the cloud.”

The Forbes Cloud 100 judging panel, including top public cloud company CEOs, reviewed the data to select, score and rank the top 100 cloud companies from all over the world.

The evaluation process involved four factors: market leadership (35 percent), estimated valuation (30 percent), operating metrics (20 percent), and people & culture (15 percent).

“All of the 25 cloud IPOs and major cloud acquisitions over the past three years have been prior members of the Cloud 100, and we absolutely expect that the dominant public cloud companies of the future will also come from this list,” said Byron Deeter, a top cloud investor and partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. “The 2018 Cloud 100 represents well over $135B in private shareholder value--an astonishing figure that reminds us yet again of the power of the cloud.”

The Forbes 2018 Cloud 100 and 20 Rising Stars lists are published online at and will appear in the September 2018 issue of Forbes magazine.
