Zuora Is Named to First-Ever Forbes 2016 World's Best 100 Cloud Companies List

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 7, 2016) - Zuora is named to the first-ever Forbes 2016 Cloud 100, the definitive list of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world, developed in partnership with Bessemer Venture Partners. To view the list, please visit www.forbes.com/cloud100. The list will appear in the October 4, 2016 issue of Forbes magazine.

"As the standard subscription finance platform for the cloud computing industry, we're honored to be included in the inaugural Forbes Cloud 100," said Tien Tzuo, CEO of Zuora, Inc. "It's a huge validation for Zuora, as well as the Subscription Economy. While we have lots of clients on this list, we're looking forward to helping many more amazing cloud companies turn their customers into subscribers."

"Cloud companies are revolutionizing how businesses reach their customers today from digitizing painful old processes to allowing them more time to focus on what they really care about -- what makes their products unique," said Forbes editor of the Cloud 100 list Alex Konrad. "Inclusion in the Forbes 2016 Cloud 100 list recognizes a company for its financial growth and excellence as recognized by customers and peers."

"These are the companies to watch!" said Byron Deeter, a leading cloud investor and partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. "The Forbes Cloud 100 companies represent the very best private companies in cloud computing. We will see big IPOs and category killers emerge from this list as the cloud computing continues to propel the trillion-dollar software industry."

Methodology
The first-ever Forbes 2016 Cloud 100 list profiles the world's top-tier private companies leading the cloud technology revolution, plus twenty rising stars within the field. With advancements in software, cloud security, or platform development, these companies are redefining the future for all industries and sectors.

Forbes, in partnership with Bessemer Venture Partners, received hundreds of submissions to identify the most promising private companies in cloud. The Forbes 2016 Cloud 100 was selected by a panel of judges representing leading public cloud companies, using qualitative and quantitative data submitted by nominees, along with publicly available third-party data sources.
