This year, Maven Wave celebrates ten years of continued company growth, mainly attributed to soaring cloud adoption and integral data analysis practices, as it paves the way for Fortune 500s to achieve their digital transformation goals.
As a leading consultant in the IT space and an award-winning Google Cloud Premier Partner, Maven Wave helps companies harness the cloud to best utilize data-driven strategy, a key component of a modern-day company’s success. The company anticipates growth to proceed at a pace of over 70% this year, reaching revenues north of $85 million for 2018.
Gartner predicts that 85% of a customer’s relationship with an enterprise will take place without human interaction by 2020. Over the past decade, enterprises have witnessed the remarkable shift to a consumer-based approach that is embedded into rapid technological advancement on a global scale. Ten years ago, when Maven Wave was founded by current partners Jeff Lee, Jason Lee, and Brian Farrar, there were only glimmers of digital transformation happening across the enterprise space. Cloud adaptation was slow and limited to just a handful of industries, and data’s potential to change the business landscape was not fully realized. But as industry veteran consultants, they saw promise in not only implementing, but laying the foundation for, change management across larger companies that tend to be a bottleneck for innovation.
In 2015, when cloud adoption rapidly expanded and became common practice for many organizations, Maven Wave started to see exponential growth.
“Disruption is happening all around us,” comments Jeff Lee. “We are at a time where agile startups can come in and take over an industry in a matter of years, and these larger organizations need all the help they can get to stay competitive and relevant. Value and assets come a long way, but without embracing new technology, and the continuous hurdles that often come with it, many of these big guys will get lost in the shuffle. That’s why Maven Wave serves as the ideal partner – we know how to maneuver and adapt, and, importantly, we know how to execute on a large scale.”
Since the private company’s inception in 2008, it has seen year-over-year growth and has doubled in size at least every 20 months. Maven Wave has also expanded its locations and overall market presence around the world, including a recent move to a larger office space, that offers an additional floor and 8,200 square feet of space in its flagship city of Chicago, as well as a new location in Gurgaon, India. Maven Wave’s growth naturally manifests in multiple award wins – the company was most recently named Google Cloud’s North American Service Provider of the Year and is frequently recognized by renowned business publications for its distinct company culture – client success stories, and a continuously growing, steadfast team that offers its clients an important mix of technical expertise, business acumen, and likability.
