Tape Ark was announced as the 41st fastest-growing technology company in Australia and the fastest growing technology company in Western Australia in the Deloitte Tech Fast 50 awards on November 16, 2023.

The awards recognize and profile Australian technology companies – public or private – that have achieved the fastest rates of annual revenue growth over the past three years. The Deloitte Tech Fast 50 Australia program – also sponsored by ASX, Atlassian, DLA Piper, Morgans and Workday – not only celebrates the success of Australia’s fastest-growing tech companies but also provides opportunities for enterprise owners to connect with potential investors, helping put businesses on the map – here and overseas.

Tape Ark CEO, Guy Holmes stated, “Being recognized in the Deloitte Tech Fast 50 is a testament to the effort the Tape Ark team has put into breaking down numerous scaling barriers. Tape Ark are now liberating data at a speed of over 1Pb per day into the public clouds (AWS and Azure). This, in turn, is helping businesses and governments around the world build incredibly rich data repositories that are forming the cortex for some of the largest-scale AI and ML projects on the planet. Every day I wake up excited to see what we are going to do to make a difference, and I am confident that Tape Ark will have a hand in making some of the most profound discoveries in industries like healthcare and climate research.” 

According to Deloitte, this year’s winners achieved impressive growth in an environment where access to capital and investment has fallen. A number of companies have relied on digitisation to boost productivity as part of a shift in their business models to focus on sustainable growth.

Deloitte Tech Fast 50 Partner Lead, Josh Tanchel, said: “Now in its 23rd year, our Tech Fast 50 program continues to unearth the gems of the Australian tech ecosystem, following in the footsteps of past winners and finalists NextDC and Atlassian.”

Deloitte Technology, Media & Telco Industry Partner Lead, Bec McConnochie, said: “Australia continues to punch above its weight in the global tech stakes. We contribute 2.3% of the world’s tech unicorns (a startup company with a value of over $1 billion), compared to 1.6% of global GDP. Technology is now our third-largest sector behind financial services and mining. As a nation, we have the potential to grow into an innovation and technology hub, with a world-leading digital economy that will drive jobs and financial growth.

This year we saw the AI boom, which is driving a once in a lifetime disruption to the way we will fundamentally work in the future. AI ushers in a new wave of tech capability that will drive new business models and accelerate the pace of digital transformation and innovation like never before. We are already seeing the surge in need for data centers, providing an enormous growth opportunity for organizations like NEXTDC, one of our past Tech Fast 50 winners.”

Tape Ark is enabling companies by liberating massive collections of historical data, removing legacy infrastructure requirements, and putting content into an accessible platform where the restraints of scale are removed.
