his breaks the Polish seven-year monopol.

The ranking, now in its 12th edition, targets the fastest growing technology companies in the region, based on the revenues growth rate experienced between 2006 and 2010.

The list of Romanian finalists this year includes Vola.ro Student Adventure S.R.L. (based in Bucharest, with a 6,219 percent growth rate in revenues during 2006 – 2010), TeamNet International S.A. (Bucharest, 2,136 percent growth rate), Crys Computers S.R.L. (Bucharest, 501 percent growth), CoSoSys S.R.L. (Cluj Napoca based, 318 percent growth rate), Fortech S.R.L. (Cluj Napoca based, 313 percent growth rate) and AROBS Transilvania Software S.R.L. (Cluj-Napoca based, 293 percent growth rate).

“The ranking is split between what might soon shape into ‘poles’ of the local technology industry – Bucharest and Cluj, with three finalists each," says Ahmed Hassan, Technology, Media and Telecommunications Industry Leader with Deloitte Balkans.

"Also, the average growth of these companies is higher that last year’s (1,630 percent versus 1,093 percent), and significantly above the average growth of the ranking overall (1,068 percent). Part of this performance lays in the entry of the first Internet Romanian company, with a significant growht rate; so far only software developers were represented by this ranking,” says Hassan.

“We have seen a drop in ranking for most Romanian companies and also an important exit (the Timisoara-based company LASTING Software, a veteran in this ranking)," says Alina Mirea, Audit Director with Deloitte Romania.

"What might seem a downside at first look is actually a strong indicator that Romanian software developers are moving to the next stage of development and getting closer to maturity, thus losing steam for abrupt revenues’ growth. Also, with this dynamics from one year to another, one can only conclude that entrepreneurship in Romanian technology still has huge potential in the years to come,” she says.

Eight countries are represented on the ranking: Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Serbia and the Slovak Republic;

Poland had the best representation with 20 companies in the ranking, followed by the Czech Republic (9 companies), Hungary and Romania (6 companies each)

Discussions with companies’ CEOs have identified five priority areas that technology leaders will be focusing on during 2011:

Confidence levels are rising about future growth.
Organic growth continues to be the most likely growth scenario.
High quality and skilled employees are critical.
Cloud computing is expected to have the highest potential return.
Performance management is crucial
In terms of sectors, Software (22 companies) and Internet (21 companies) dominated the ranking, followed by Telecommunications/Networking (5 companies) and two companies in other sectors. Similar to 2010, 7 of the 10 fastest-growing companies belonged to the Internet sector.dle templates freefilm online
