This year has required all of us to think a little bit differently about the future. At Elastic, our pursuit of innovation starts with a fundamental belief that better is always possible — better products, better customer service, and most importantly, a better world. We need solutions for a better world now more than ever, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re honored to drive technology — such as Workplace Search and Elastic Security — that is alleviating some of the stresses of a challenging business year by making virtual workplaces searchable, scalable, and secure for Enterprise businesses around the world.
Since 2008, the Fast Company Most Innovative Companies list has celebrated organizations that push the envelope to transform industries and shape societies with their unique approach to technology and the workplace. The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy. Last year, Elastic was chosen as one of 10 enterprise companies for our role in powering companies like Uber, Walgreens, Adobe, and T-Mobile with the power of the Elastic Stack.
This year, we’re proud that Elastic was honored yet again as one of the top innovative enterprise companies in the world. We moved up a spot this year to the third position on the list, which is due in large part to the innovations included in our major releases and the many new features offered by our cloud products.
