Exactly one week after I talked about how Atlassian is poised to make a big IPO based on their huge upswing in growth, Atlassian management announces that they are hiring a new CFO to take them public. Amazing timing and best of luck to the Atlassian team.

This wonderfully demonstrates the power of OutsideIntel’s platform. Being able to identify companies with real growth from a huge array of companies is tricky. Not to mention the signal-to-noise ratio that marketing groups add to the mix. Those things make finding the real meat of a business’ worth is increasingly critical and increasingly difficult. Thankfully I found a way to do it, and it appears to be working in practice.
