NEW HAVEN, Conn., Aug. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Prometheus Research, a leading provider of integrated data management services and open-source technologies to behavioral and biomedical researchers, announced today that it has been named to the 2012 Inc 500|5000 List of fastest growing private companies in the US. The list has, over the years, included companies such as Microsoft, Timberland, Vizio, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Oracle, and Zappos.com.
"Being named to Inc's 500|5000 List of fastest growing private companies is an honor, and we appreciate the recognition of our achievements," said Founder & CEO, Dr. Leon Rozenblit. "I believe the reason we have been so successful is because have an extraordinary team of people. We have always made it our mission to invest in top talent and have built a remarkably capable team that knows how to put the needs of our clients first."
Prometheus Research delivers exceptional value to researchers and clinicians by tackling complex data management challenges with the right people, right technology, and right processes. Customers get a share in a cross-functional team of experts that provides the right skill, on the right problem, at the right time. Prometheus has also developed innovative, highly flexible technologies, that are specifically adopted to serve the rapidly evolving needs of research, and that significantly increase efficiencies of their data management services. Prometheus has made the unusual decision to release its software under an open-source license, allowing anyone to use, modify, and distribute the code. "We feel this is the right approach to creating a community of tool users and developers in research data management," said Rozenblit. "Anyone can contribute enhancements that will in turn benefit the entire community. Transparency also increases both the quality and security of the code, and provides protection against lock-in."
By attentively synthesizing lessons from many diverse projects, Prometheus has developed a resilient set of processes that cover areas such as centralizing data management functions, security reviews, and project governance. "Our success supporting some of the largest research projects in the world is as much a testament to our processes as it is to our tools and our people," added Rozenblit.
The 2012 Inc 500|5000 award is based on revenue growth during the previous 3 year period.
