A guest post by Joe Warbington (Solutions Architect, Healthcare at Qlik)
Recently, Inc released their latest list of the fastest-growing private U.S. companies. “The list is compiled by measuring each company’s percentage revenue growth over a four-year period. As a data set, it can tell you some pretty interesting things such as which industries are growing the fastest and which cities high-growth companies are gravitating towards.” according to import.io.
California tech companies dominate the 2014 list, perhaps as expected. Curious to see how Wisconsin-based companies performed, I took the list and quickly added it to Qlik Sense – a next-gen data visualization and discovery application.
In minutes, I was able to to see the 70 Wisconsin companies that made the list this year. Quite a few healthcare-IT related firms help boost the workforce (17,984 people) and overall revenue generated ($7 billion USD):
How do these 70 cheesehead organizations compare to the 694 companies that made the list from California?
Using storytelling, I then highlighted all of the companies in the Health industry to compare number of companies, revenue, and workforce. Pretty good representation on the list.
Perhaps that leads us to the next question… What states have the most Health companies on the list? CA, TX, FL, GA.
