MPP Global is delighted to confirm our inclusion in the Cloudex 20:20 list, led by advisory firm Clearwater Corporate Finance.

Chosen by a panel of industry experts, the list unveils the UK’s top 20 independent cloud computing businesses and includes companies that lead the field in offering cloud-based services and software as a service. The cloud industry is enjoying double digit year-on-year growth as businesses transfer more of their IT infrastructure to the cloud.

Of the 20 businesses chosen by judges as the UK’s top cloud companies, 14 are in London and the South East, three are in the North West, two are in South East and one is in the West Midlands. The panel chose the businesses based on criteria including innovation, the amount of income derived from the cloud, customer base, turnover and profit growth.

“This has been another tremendous year for MPP Global, undertaking major projects for existing clients and growing our teams across the board,” CEO Paul Johnson said. “Inclusion in the list demonstrates our continued progress and is a testament to the hard work, enthusiasm and innovation of our entire team.”

The Cloudex 20:20 panel comprised serial technology entrepreneur and chairman Neville Davis; Steve Garnett, European chairman of, the world’s leading cloud computing business; Stephen Warshaw, portfolio director at TMT specialist investor HgCapital; Angela Eager of TechMarketView; and Emma Rodgers, director of TMT market intelligence at Clearwater.

Emma Rodgers said: “The UK has been a relatively early adopter of cloud technology and there is now an impressive clutch of cloud businesses enjoying the benefit of the organic growth in the sector. Looking at the entrants to Cloudex 20:20, we were really encouraged by the quality out there. Given that software as a service is still a relatively young market, many of these businesses were under the radar, so we are pleased to highlight them and showcase the strength of the sector in the UK.”

Fellow Cloudex judge Angela Eager added: “The UK has a host of good Cloud companies and a lot coming through too. We have the innovation and the talent and the UK has been one of the most willing countries to adopt the cloud, too.”

An overall winner from the shortlist of 20 will be announced by Clearwater at an awards event in the autumn.
