iQuate’s company founder Jason Keogh said, "The recession has caused companies to focus on cost reduction and limit risk. iQuate’s IT Discovery and Inventory solutions help companies to control IT costs without disrupting operations, and this has proved to be of huge benefit to large enterprises with IT estates of tens of thousands of desktops and servers."
The Fast 50 programme, now in its thirteenth year in Ireland, ranks the fastest growing technology companies in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Announcing the winners of the Technology Fast 50 programme, Richard Howard, Partner with Deloitte, Dublin said: “Each year, we are considerably enthused by the resilience and tenacity of the indigenous technology sector as they demonstrate high levels of growth amidst challenging economic times. One of the key drivers of this growth has been their ability to capitalise on international markets. Many Irish companies now have an increased focus on international expansion as a way to drive sustainable growth. The indigenous technology sector has been a trailblazer in this regard – some of our most successful technology companies have long been internationalising their IP and reaping the rewards. It’s encouraging to observe that so many of our Fast 50 winning companies are seeking to exploit both local and global markets to their best advantage.”
The awards took place in the Guinness Storehouse on Friday 16 November. Dr Chris Horn, co-founder and former CEO Iona Technologies, was keynote speaker at the event. Details of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 ranking list are available to download at www.fast50.ie.
