Bluewolf Celebrates a Decade of Cloud Computing Success

Bluewolf's Agile Methodology Transforms the Businesses of More Than 3,000 Clients; Leads to 40% YOY Growth Since Founding

NEW YORK, NY and LONDON--(Marketwire - April 7, 2010) - Agile business consulting firm, Bluewolf (www.bluewolf.com) today marks a decade of success in Cloud Computing with more than 3,000 clients and 40 percent year over year revenue growth, since its founding.

Success was hardly assured when co-founders Michael Kirven and Eric Berridge launched Bluewolf in 2000, during the dot.com meltdown. Early on, it recognized and adopted Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Cloud Computing and agile development methods that focus on business results, and delivered them at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional, on-premise software. Bluewolf is the first consulting firm that is proving success in how services are delivered in an on-demand world.

According to cofounder Eric Berridge, Bluewolf's success is due to our focus on enabling businesses to take advantage of one of the biggest trends of the decade -- Cloud Computing. Bluewolf is uniquely positioned for continued growth and success over traditional consulting firms like Accenture and Deloitte, due to our proven, proprietary Agile Business Transformation platform and our 10 years of success in helping clients achieve results with the next wave of computing.

The trend toward Cloud Computing, or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), has accelerated during the last few years and is predicted to continue major growth, as adoption continues to grow and evolve within the enterprise application markets -- markets where Bluewolf has demonstrated success. "The worldwide cloud services market is expected to reach $150.1 billion in 2013," according to Gartner, Inc (Gartner press release, "Gartner Says Worldwide Cloud Services Will Grow 21.3% in 2009," March 26, 2009.) 

Ten Year Anniversary Recognition from Industry Leaders

Gerhard Gschwandtner, publisher and founder of Selling Power magazine, "Bluewolf understood the significance of Cloud Computing long before other consulting firms in the business. Because of their forward-thinking and agile approach, Bluewolf is a top consultant to partner with for Cloud Computing initiatives because of their proven ability to implement Cloud solutions in record time, while helping organizations transform their businesses by leveraging technology. Congratulations on a decade of success!"

Joe Harris, director of IT, Beazer Homes, "Our experience with Bluewolf has been remarkable. Bluewolf was the best fit for our organization during our initial interview. By teaming with Bluewolf through the process of discovery, design, development and deployment, we were able to innovate in ways we could never have done alone."

Ten Years of Customer Success

As it marks its 10th anniversary, Bluewolf -- which started with two employees in a small office in New York City -- has grown to a global company with offices in London, New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, Denver and Atlanta. Bluewolf's many clients include Time Warner Cable, Beazer Homes, and Google, Univar/ Reed Business Systems and Dow Jones.

Bluewolf's agile approach to consulting and Cloud Computing is earning rave reviews from all across the business world. Bluewolf and its executives have been recognized as leaders by numerous organizations, including:

  • CRAIN's NEW YORK BUSINESS named it one of "best places to work" in New York City
  • Ernst & Young finalist for entrepreneur of the year, Eric Berridge
  • Inc. 5000 Fast Growing company
  • CRN magazine Fast Growth 100 company
