Cognizant ranked 12th on Forbes Fast-Tech 25 list, LinkedIn at No 1

US-headquartered
Indian IT services major Cognizant has been ranked at 12th place on a
Forbes list of America’s 25 fastest growing tech companies, which has
been topped by business networking site LinkedIn.
Social networking giant Facebook is ranked second, followed by global IT major Apple at the third place.
Nasdaq-listed
Cognizant, which recently pipped Infosys as the second-largest IT
services firm in India, is the only Indian company on the list. Despite
being a US-based company, a significant portion of its employees are
from India.
Others on the list include 3D
Systems (4th), IPG Photonics (5th), EPAM Systems (6th), Shutterstock
(7th), InvenSense (8th), Shutterfly (9th), OpenTable (10th), SolarWinds
(11th), athenahealth (13th), Ixia (14th) and Equinix (15th).
Interestingly,
Google is ranked quite low at 17th place. The list includes only those
tech firms that are making profits and have a minimum revenue of $ 150
million and a market cap of at least $ 500 million.
