“The leaders of the companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression,” said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. “The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs.”

LiveLogic Has Delivered Advanced Analytics For Over a Decade

LiveLogic has been building dashboards and custom analytical applications for companies like EDS, Reddy Ice, HP, LSG Sky Chefs, Greyhound, Sally Beauty, and the Dallas Mavericks for the past 15 years.

LiveLogic dashboards are delivered either through the cloud (Software as a Service, or SaaS), spreading the cost of hardware, software, IT headcount, and development across all subscribers, or more traditionally, within a corporations data center, leveraging existing infrastructure and maintenance skills.

This is proven technology that makes a dramatic difference. Whether in the cloud or in a data center, LiveLogic dashboards make it easy to see the overall trends affecting a business with full interactivity, allowing drill-down and slicing-and-dicing to get to the details behind the trends.

“Companies need to know how they are performing, need to know what their customers and suppliers are doing, and need the information fast enough to be able to act decisively. Our dashboards tame the data beast, putting companies in charge of the massive amounts of data they are collecting,” said LiveLogic President Jon Crowell.

From the official Inc. press release:

The 2010 Inc. 5000, unveiled today on Inc.com, serves as a unique illustration of the profound changes taking place in the U.S. economy.

Despite the fact that most of this year’s measuring period of 2006-2009 took place during the latest recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $321.6 billion, up more than 50 percent from last year. The effects of the recession are seen, however, in the median three-year growth rate, which dropped to 96 percent from last year’s 126 percent. This year’s Inc. 5000 employ a record 1.4 million people, up from one million on last year’s list. With unemployment remaining stubbornly high, policymakers and business leaders will do well to look to the Inc. 5000 companies for fresh ideas on achieving growth and creating jobs.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found on the 2010 Inc. 5000 List. (LiveLogic’s Inc. 5000 Profile)

Inc. 5000 Methodology

The 2010 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2006 to 2009. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by June 30, 2006. Additionally, they had to be based in the United States, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2009. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2006 is $80,000; the minimum for 2009 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. The top 10 percent of companies on the list constitute the Inc. 500, now in its 29th year.
