Inc. Magazine Unveils Its Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000

DCAC Debuts No. 2056 on the 2019 Inc. 5000
With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 290% Percent

NEW YORK, August 14, 2019 2019 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting [DCAC] is No. 2056 on its annual 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. Microsoft, Dell, Pandora, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“This is a very exciting time at DCAC and we want to thank Inc. Magazine as well as our team,” CEO and founder Denny Cherry commented. “When your ‘Help Wanted’ sign reads, ‘Must have globally renowned technology expertise’ you tend end up with a very small applicant pool, as well as competition from major corporations for their services. We are incredibly proud so many experts have chosen to join our ranks.”

“The good news is that our experts can now help enterprise businesses and major corporations on a level no lone expert could. Every consultant we hire joins a pool of experts with individual disciplines – their knowledge sharing exponentially grows our capabilities here at DCAC, every time. We can assist small, enterprise and corporate companies as they approach their most daring Big Data, data warehousing, data security, and cloud architecture projects.”

Richard Sawicky, Chief Data Officer at client company ATTOM Data concurred with Cherry’s assessment of DCAC’s talents. “DCAC helped us complete a 50 terabyte migration in 45 days: on time, under budget. The project resulted in a 30% cost savings on our infrastructure.”

DCAC’s debut with 290% growth is all the more impressive because, as Inc. Magazine notes, not only have they been very competitive within the technology market, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona.

Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting Launches Vital Microsoft Azure Database for Elisabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation

Solution Now Available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace

Microsoft Azure customers worldwide now gain access to Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting (DCAC) Cloud Migration Solution to take advantage of the scalability, reliability, and agility of Microsoft Azure to drive application development and shape business strategies.

OCEANSIDE, CA, U.S. — August 8, 2019 — Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting (DCAC), today announced the launch of a vital new Microsoft Azure SQL Database on behalf of the nationally renowned non-profit, the Elisabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation [EGPAF]. The Cloud Migration solution they developed is now available in the Azure Marketplace a market for buying and selling cloud solutions certified to run on Azure. DCAC customers can now take advantage of the scalability, high availability, and security of Azure, with streamlined deployment and management.

The database will drive communications between EGPAF and more than 5,200 medical facilities spanning 19 countries across the globe, enabling the rapid transfer of medical information, HIV prevention, diagnosis, and treatment services for pregnant mothers, children, and families. Power BI reports will give EGPAF staff the ability to view data as soon as it is imported, allowing them to view the data for any country or time range. Permissions and encryption are handled within the Azure SQL Database to ensure all legal and medical compliance issues are met. Finally, the database simultaneously allows the foundation to provide donors with high-quality business intelligence and analytics so they can see what their donations are accomplishing.

Architecting the Azure data warehouse solution involved informational, compliance, and financial challenges across international lines for the globally renowned and award-winning experts at DCAC. From an informational standpoint, EGPAF works with non-standard data from multiple African countries that each utilize unique databases in ever-changing formats. This meant migration to the cloud would be one challenge, while ongoing data entry would be another. From a compliance perspective, the database had to convey medical data across international lines. Finally, as a non-profit, cost was a tremendous issue. But DCAC demonstrated how an All-Azure solution and working with the globally renowned experts at DCAC could help EGPAF manage costs. According to EGPAF, DCAC’s innovation has the potential to save up to 300,000 administrative hours per year, a 75% reduction in time spent gathering/aggregating/cleaning data.

Stephanie Bruno, the Senior Manager of Informatics at EGPAF, commented, “Access to data about the mothers and children we assist is literally a matter of life and death. Having clean, trustworthy data available improves faster access to services and improves medical outcomes. Thanks to DCAC and Microsoft Azure, we can provide more tailored services to health facilities to improve outcomes for children and families. Additionally, our donors are requiring detailed data so they know their donations are being used effectively. DCAC’s solution also offers us enormous administrative savings in terms of hardware and software while providing better data to save lives.”

Senior Consultant and lead architect on the project, Joey D’Antoni, commented, “This was a very challenging project. From an Azure perspective, the infrastructure is relatively straightforward, however, the variety and lack of consistency with data sources makes the ETL piece of the project extremely challenging.”

DCAC’s database for EGPAF has already garnered multiple accolades at the American Business Awards including the bronze for Technical Innovation of the Year 2019, Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year, and Technical Professional of the Year, Joey D’Antoni.

Sajan Parihar, Senior Director, Microsoft Azure Platform at Microsoft Corp said, “We’re pleased to welcome Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting and their Cloud Migration Solution to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, which gives our partners great exposure to cloud customers around the globe. Azure Marketplace offers world-class quality experiences from global trusted partners with solutions tested to work seamlessly with Azure.”
