Hear how to build a billion-dollar SaaS company at TechCrunch Disrupt

Neeraj Agrawal, a partner at Battery Ventures and seasoned enterprise investor, presented his growth thesis in a widely read article for TechCrunch …

There was a time when brick-and-mortar mom and pops framed their first $1 on the wall, but in the SaaS startup the equivalent milestone is $1 billion revenue run-rate.

Salesforce is the SaaS revenue king reporting $4 billion in revenue for its most recent quarterly report, and there are many other relatively new SaaS companies, such as WorkDay, ServiceNow and Atlassian, that have broken the $1 billion barrier.

This year at TechCrunch Disrupt (tickets here!), we welcome three people to the Extra Crunch stage who know first hand what it takes to join the billion dollar club.

Neeraj Agrawal, a partner at Battery Ventures and seasoned enterprise investor, presented his growth thesis in a widely read article for TechCrunch where he outlined the key milestones for a SaaS company to reach a billion dollars.

Whitney Bouck is COO at HelloSign, a startup that was sold to Dropbox in 2018 for $230 million. Bouck was also an executive at Box, guiding their enterprise business from 2011-2015. Prior to that she was at Documentum, which exited in 2003 to EMC for $1.7 billion.

Jyoti Bansal is currently co-founder & CEO of Harness. Previously, he was founder & CEO of AppDynamics, which Cisco acquired in 2017 for $3.7 billion. Bansal is also an investor as co-founder of venture capital firm Unusual Ventures.

The goal of this panel is to help you understand the tools and strategies that go into ramping to a billion in revenue and beyond. It requires a rare combination of good idea, product-market fit, culture and commitment. It also requires figuring out how to evolve the core idea and recover from inevitable mistakes — all while selling investors on your vision.

We’re amped for this conversation, and we can’t wait to see you there! Buy tickets to Disrupt SF here at an early-bird rate!

Top 5 Business Intelligence Mergers and Acquisitions of 2019

Logi Analytics, Inc. (“Logi”) in June announced the acquisition of Zoomdata, the leading analytics platform for big data and live streaming information.

Business Intelligence Mergers and Acquisitions

Consistently, similar to perfect timing, the Business Intelligence (BI) industry respects the upcoming age of BI platform providers. Two decades prior, it was Cognos and MicroStrategy. At that point, Tableau and QlikTech ventured up to lead. What’s more, with each passing of the torch, new pioneers develop with the ability to disrupt the market.

2019 can best be portrayed as a period of modern cloud data analytics. While the way to reactive convergence is as of now in progress, the new pioneer is currently rising. Let’s have a look at the Top 5 Business Intelligence Mergers and Acquisitions of 2019.

Google Acquires Looker

In June, Google announced it will secure Looker, a hot analytics startup that has raised more than $280 million. It’s paying $2.6 billion for the benefit and adding the organization to Google Cloud.

Thomas Kurian, the man who was given control to Google Cloud toward the end of last year, sees the two organizations uniting a complete data analytics solution for users. “The blend gives an end-to-end analytics platform to interface, gather, examine and envision information across Google Cloud, Azure, AWS, on-premises databases and ISV applications.

Maybe, it is anything but a fortuitous event that Google followed Looker as the two organizations had a solid existing partnership and 350 common clients, as per Google. “We have numerous common clients we’ve worked with. An incredible aspect concerning this acquisition is that the two organizations have known each other for quite a while, we share an exceptionally common culture,” Kurian said.

Logi Analytics Acquires Zoomdata

Logi Analytics, Inc. (“Logi”) in June announced the acquisition of Zoomdata, the leading analytics platform for big data and live streaming information. The acquisition comes three months after Logi procured JReport for pixel-flawless operational reporting. The blend sets Logi’s position as the pioneer in embedded analytics, presently with the most extravagant suite of abilities and a worldwide partner network.

For a long time in succession, Zoomdata got the Technology Innovation Award for Big Data Analytics by Dresner Advisory Services. Zoomdata’s one of a kind and patented streaming innovation permits real-time perceivability into data that is too huge to move and information that changes as often as possible, which are common difficulties for Internet of Things (IoT), cybersecurity, monetary hazard and extortion, customer insight, hospital patient care, and telco network execution applications.

Zoomdata is Logi’s second procurement in 2019. According to Schneider, “Logi’s developer-level platform offers the broadest set of embedded analytics capacities in the business, including security incorporation, custom theming, self-service analysis, work process, write-back, pixel-flawless operational reporting, predictive analytics, and big data analytics. Furthermore, Zoomdata’s overall network of key affiliates and frameworks integrators like StrategyCore, Deloitte, Infosys, and Hitachi will help organizations effectively receive, manufacture, and oversee mission-critical applications.”

Salesforce Acquires Tableau Software

Salesforce.com Inc acquired big data firm Tableau Software Inc for $15.3 billion, denoting the greatest acquisition in the organization’s history as it hopes to offer more data insights to its customers. Seattle-based Tableau has more than 86,000 clients, including tech heavyweights, for example, Verizon Communications Inc and Netflix Inc. As a part of the all-stock arrangement, Tableau investors will get 1.103 Salesforce shares, esteeming the offer at $177.88 per share.

Salesforce’s deal comes days after Alphabet Inc’s Google purchased big data analytics organization Looker for $2.6 billion and outperforms the $5.9 billion that the cloud-based software organization paid to purchase U.S. programming creator MuleSoft in 2018. The acquisition accelerates Salesforce’s roadmap for their Customer 360 activity, which enables organizations to increase a total perspective on their clients, and all the more comprehensively their analytics initiative,” Wedbush Securities analyst Steve Koenig said.

We are uniting the world’s #1 CRM with the #1 analytics platform,” said Marc Benioff, Chairman, and co-CEO of Salesforce. “Tableau enables individuals to see and get information, and Salesforce enables individuals to engage and understand clients. It’s genuinely the best of the two universes for our clients – uniting two critical platforms that each client needs to comprehend their world.”

Salesforce has been a dominant player in the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) enterprise domain for a considerable length of time. The choice to secure Tableau, an analytics platform and data visualisation expert with more than 86,000 customers around the world, highlights the company’s day of work into the analytics field and enhancement past its fundamental CRM product offering.

Qlik Acquires Attunity

Qlik, a pioneer in data analytics and Attunity Ltd. a leading supplier of data integration and big data management software solutions, in February reported that the two organizations consented to a conclusive arrangement under which Qlik will secure Attunity. Under the terms of the agreement, Qlik will obtain all exceptional ordinary shares of Attunity for an all-out estimation of around $560 million. Attunity investors will get $23.50 in cash per share, speaking to an 18% premium to Attunity’s last closing cost of $19.93 per share on February 20, 2019. The agreement was consistently affirmed by the board of directors of Qlik and Attunity.

Building on Qlik’s ongoing procurement of Podium Data and the presentation of Qlik Data Catalyst, Attunity gives cross-platform data streaming capabilities to help a move to cloud and real-time analytics. This procurement further separates Qlik by giving an extended expansiveness of enterprise data management capabilities and includes an experienced team of data experts. Predictable with Qlik’s vision for third era business intelligence, a solid data management methodology makes the establishment of an enterprise analytics strategy that drives insights and changes companies.

Sisense Acquires Periscope Data

Sisense declared that it has obtained Periscope Data to make what it is calling a complete data science and analytics platform for users. The organizations did not unveil the amount of acquisition. Sisense, which has raised $174 million, will, in general, serve business intelligence necessities either for internal use or remotely with clients. Periscope, which has raised more than $34 million, takes a look at the data science part of the business.

The two CEOs state they could have in the end incorporated these capacities with their respective platforms, however, subsequent to their meeting they chose to unite the two organizations rather, and they made a deal.

Periscope CEO Harry Glaser says that as his organization built an organization around advanced analytics and predictive modeling, he saw a developing opportunity around operationalizing these bits of knowledge across a company, something he could do significantly more rapidly in blend with Sisense.

Forbes has put out its latest Cloud 100, and while payments provider Stripe remains top of the shop the big five has a refreshing feel to it.

Stripe remains at #1 for the third successive year in the media firm’s list of private cloud companies – as in cloud companies which are privately held – while behind it the top five consists of data warehouse Snowflake, robotic process automation (RPA) provider UiPath, infrastructure automation firm HashiCorp, and data analytics company Datadog.

Part of this turnover is down to a strong year of exits. No fewer than five of last year’s top 10 went public over the past 12 months; Slack, Zoom Video Communications, CrowdStrike, Elastic and Eventbrite. In addition, Qualtrics, which placed at #7 last time out, was acquired by SAP for $8 billion (£6.2bn) in November. Looker, which ranked just outside the top third (#34) in 2018, was acquired by Google for $2.6bn while Cylance, ranked #18, was bought by BlackBerry.

UiPath is a particularly interesting case. Last year’s list saw the company debut at #14, with Forbes admitting its rise ‘absolutely came out of left field.’ In a statement acknowledging its bronze medal, CEO Daniel Dines said the company ‘could not have achieved this kind of growth and success without teams around the world, investors who are true partners, and customers and partners who have bet on [their] automation technology to transform their businesses.’

As before, the Cloud 100 is put together alongside Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures. The investors do have skin in the game in certain cases; cloud CRM software builder Vlocity, ranked at #24, received a $60 million series C funding round in March to which Bessemer and Salesforce both contributed. The hopefuls were whittled down based on growth, sales, valuation and culture, as well as consultation from 40 CEOs at publicly-held cloud companies.

The list was praised by Forbes as being the ‘strongest and most diverse’ group of companies assembled yet. “Though infrastructure and development companies lead the way on the 2019 Cloud 100 list, design tools are making a move and no-office, fully remote setups are gaining traction,” the company wrote.

In terms of what the companies do, this holds a strong case. Plenty of big data and backend-facing companies now infiltrate the top end of the rankings, which could be seen as affirmation of the money getting behind it. Snowflake secured a mammoth $450 million funding round back in October, while Apache Kafka software provider Confluent, which made the top 10, was valued at $2.5 billion following a $125m series D round in January. Rubrik, Cloudflare and Databricks – which nabbed $250m in series E funding in February – also made the top 20.

While it means fewer fluffy SaaS and B2C cloud apps are taking the honours, the diversity charge struggles when it comes to who runs the Cloud 100. Only four CEOs in the 100 are female, with two – Nicole Eagan and Poppy Gustafsson at Darktrace – at the same company. Melanie Perkins, CEO of Canva, and Rachel Carlson, chief executive of Guild Education, complete the set.

This appears to be a recurring challenge for Forbes; the company’s list of 100 most innovative leaders earlier this month featured a grand total of one woman. Barbara Rentler, CEO of Ross Stores, placed #75 and was not even afforded the luxury of a photo. Forbes has since taken its medicine; editor Randall Lane noted the disparity of women chief executives as a contributor to the ‘flawed’ methodology behind the list.

The top 10, in descending order, are Stripe, Snowflake, UiPath, HashiCorp, Datadog, Procore, Tanium, InVision, Rubrik and Confluent. You can see the full list here.

Postscript: The 2019 Cloud 100 already has its first graduate; Cloudflare has gone for IPO, with the NYSE doing the honours earlier today.
