Metalogix Software, the trusted provider of content lifecycle management solutions for Microsoft® SharePoint®, Exchange® and Cloud platforms, today announced that the Washington Business Journal has named Metalogix to its annual list of the 50 Fastest Growing Companies in the Washington, D.C. metro area. The list evaluates companies based on year-over-year revenue growth from 2009, 2010, and 2011.
“On behalf of our 5,000-plus global customers, partner network and employees, I am thrilled to accept this honor from the Washington Business Journal,” said Steven Murphy, CEO, Metalogix. “This recognition further validates our dedication to helping organizations address their big content management and performance challenges. With the hyper-rapid growth of content, expected to sprawl from 1 Zettabyte to 35 Zettabytes in total by 2020, we are committed to creating and developing innovative, breakthrough solutions that improve how organizations organize, storage and access content right here in DC.”
The technology sector in the Washington, D.C. metro area has enjoyed tremendous growth over the past decade, as Forbes Magazine in May named Washington, D.C. the second best city in the United States for technology jobs, behind only Seattle, with a 20.6% increase in jobs since 2001. Metalogix moved its headquarters to Washington, D.C. in 2010 and has helped fuel the area’s rapid rise in the technology sector.
“We have hired more than 50 new employees at our Washington, D.C. headquarters in the past two years and are looking to hire and invest in the best talent to increase our growth in 2012 and beyond,” said Murphy. “We firmly believe that the software and technology industries in Washington, D.C. will continue to thrive and we expect to be an integral part in this exiting era of innovation.”
The growth of Metalogix between 2009 and 2011 was driven by a suite of solutions that enhance and extend SharePoint, which is the content and collaboration platform of choice for modern enterprises. Metalogix Migration Manager for SharePoint is the de facto standard to upgrade SharePoint and consolidate file shares and disparate content stores into SharePoint. Metalogix StoragePoint is the leading Remote BLOB Storage (RBS) solution to decrease SharePoint storage costs.
