Double Hitter: DCAC Makes a Second Appearance on Inc. 5000 List

Published On: 2020-08-13By:

For the 2nd Time, Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting Appears on the Inc. 5000, Ranking No. 2819 With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 141 Percent

NEW YORK, August 12, 2020 – Today, Inc. magazine announced that Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting [DCAC] is once again named to the Inc. 5000 List, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

The boutique cloud solutions and database experts at DCAC attributed their #2819 ranking and explosive 141% three-year increase in revenue to high demand for their skills in contractual services, including database administration, cloud monitoring, and performance tuning. The contractual services ensure optimized production while helping clients keep costs down.

CEO Denny Cherry commented, “We have so many to thank for DCAC’s growth. But it all starts with the great team of experts we have here at DCAC. Becoming an expert in anything requires not only aptitude, talent, and dedication, but a commitment to self-discipline, lifelong learning, and professionalism. Every member of our team brings that to the table, every day, and I thank them for turning DCAC into the IT brand it is today.

Our clients recognize that in all our team members as well. That’s why so many end up contracting with us on an ongoing basis: due to our skill level, we can get a lot more accomplished in less time and it’s done right the first time. Simultaneously, our team goes the extra mile, ensuring each client’s IT environment is always updated, secure, and optimized for performance. We appreciate our clients’ trust in us, so we thank them, as well as Inc. Magazine, for this honor.”

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 at www.inc.com/inc5000.

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually from October 23 to 27, 2020. As always, speakers will include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.

Methodology

The 2020 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2016 and 2019. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2016. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2019. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2016 is $100,000; the minimum for 2019 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue.

Tips For Presenting Remotely

Published On: 2020-08-03By:

Presenting a conference session to a large number of IT professions is probably one of the most nerve-wracking things that an IT professional can do. Generally speaking, we aren’t trained in public speaking, and a lot of the time we are introverts.

Giving the current Covid-19 pandemic that’s affecting the entire world, all the conferences that haven’t been canceled have gone to a virtual model where the conference is being held online. This introduces some additional challenges to the presenters as suddenly you are presenting to your computer screen for anywhere from 5-10 minutes for a lightning talk (or Speaker Idol session) to 6 hours (or more) for a pre-con.

As we prepare for the PASS Virtual Summit that’s coming up in a couple of short months, Joey (b|t) and I wanted to take a little time to talk through what the presenters who are presenting remotely are going to have, what they are going to want near them, and what they can expect when giving a remote presentation.

We obviously aren’t clairvoyant, but between the two of us we do have hundreds if not thousands of hours of remote presenting experience. So we’ve seen the good and the bad. And we’ve experienced tons of problems as well as successes that we want to share in our upcoming webcast. The webcast is September 17, 2020 at 11am Pacific / 2pm Eastern / 6pm UTC and we hope to see you there.
