Durham, NC (Oct 26, 2018) – Core Compete, a global consulting firm that helps organizations accelerate, innovate and automate Big Data and Analytics initiatives, today announced that it has been ranked as one of the fastest growing consulting firms in North America for 2018. This marks the third consecutive year that Core Compete has ranked among the fastest growing consulting firms; having placed 2nd in 2016, 3rd in 2017, and 6th in 2018. Published by the premier publication for the Consulting profession ALM’s Consulting Magazine, the list includes the fastest growing consulting firms based on last 3 years’ revenue growth between 2014 and 2017.

Helping drive this strong growth is the need for business executives to achieve business value from the overwhelming growth of data that flows into the organization. Faced with a fast-changing competitive landscape and a complex set of technologies, companies lack the critical skills required to design and implement an end-to-end modern, elastic analytics infrastructure. Core Compete leverages its expertise in big data, analytics and cloud technologies to help companies achieve business value in months instead of years by enabling customers to seek rapid outcomes, scale success and create the agility needed to adapt and change.

Managing Partner Shiva Kommareddi shared thoughts on the significance of achieving this milestone. “Our employees consider it an honor to be recognized by such a well-respected national publication. It is especially gratifying to earn this distinction for the third year in a row. Importantly, receiving an award like this provides an opportunity for our team and our clients to step back from all the hard work that has been done and take a moment to appreciate what we have accomplished together. This is a great accomplishment for our organization and we will use this to help motivate us to continue on the same path of achieving growth by delivering customer value from big data.”
