Collibra Named to the Top 30 of the 2022 Forbes Cloud 100

Collibra, the Data Intelligence company, has been named to the Forbes 2022 Cloud 100, the definitive ranking of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world, published by Forbes in partnership with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures. Collibra ranked 29 on the list this year – its sixth consecutive appearance – representing an 11-spot improvement over 2021.

"Collibra is the best-in-class data intelligence platform that enables global organizations to make faster decisions with their data so they can innovate, thrive, and grow," said Felix Van de Maele, Founder and CEO of Collibra. "This recognition from Forbes and fellow industry leaders validates the incredible growth and opportunity in the data intelligence category. We are humbled to share this recognition with the Collibra team and our community of customers and partners."

Collibra’s system of engagement provides the trust, context, and collaboration needed to manage, govern, and secure data, and unlock it for business transformation. The company, recently valued at $5.25 billion, was also recently recognized as Certified™ by Great Place to Work® in multiple countries including Belgium, Poland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

For the seventh straight year, the Cloud 100 reviews submissions from hundreds of cloud startups and private companies each year. The Cloud 100 evaluation process involved ranking companies across four factors: market leadership (35%), estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), and people & culture (15%). For market leadership, the Cloud 100 enlists the help of a judging panel of public cloud company CEOs who assist in evaluating and ranking their private company peers.

“The companies of the Cloud 100 list represent the best and brightest private companies in this fast-growing sector,” said Alex Konrad, senior editor at Forbes. “Every year, it gets more difficult to make this list — meaning even more elite company for those who do. Congratulations to each of the 2022 Cloud 100 honorees.”

“The public markets may be in turmoil, but the private valuations of the Cloud 100 continue to rise. All of the 2022 Cloud 100 honorees, again, have reached the $1 billion valuation milestone, and the average Cloud 100 valuation has skyrocketed to $7.4 billion,” said Mary D’Onofrio, partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. “Despite the market correction in 2022, our confidence in the cloud economy continues to grow—today over 70% of the 2022 Cloud 100 Honorees have reached or exceeded $100 million in annual recurring revenue making them cloud Centaurs. An additional 10% of the list is expected to hit this milestone by the end of the year, furthering our conviction that this years’ honorees truly represent the best cloud companies globally.”

“Great companies are born out of all environments, and it’s exciting to see the continued momentum in the cloud sector,” said Alex Kayyal, Managing Partner, Salesforce Ventures. ”The companies on this list have gone through a rigorous selection process, and join an esteemed alumni list of Cloud 100 companies. As the need for digital transformation continues to drive innovation and efficiencies across industries, we can look to these companies as the absolute best in cloud computing.“
