What is the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific?
The Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu's (DTT) Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific is one of Asia's most objective rankings for the technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) industries.

The original program, the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 North America, was founded in 1995. In 2002, DTT expanded the program to Asia Pacific.

It is companies such as these that will likely be key forces behind economic growth in Asia Pacific for years to come.

Furthermore, since award winners likely will continue to grow at a rapid pace and be the source of future technological advances, this DTT program recognizes, rewards and raises the profile of the fastest-growing firms.

How does Deloitte determine the winners?
The 2016 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific winners are determined using three-year percentage growth for each company. In 2016, companies are ranked on percentage of stated revenue growth between 2013 and 2015 (or 2014 to 2016 for a financial year ending between January and June). The 500 that meet the strict definition of "technology companies with the fastest-growth over three years" make the list. DTT assumes that all information provided by each company is accurate and does not independently verify such information.

Why is individual company revenue NOT revealed in the list?
The Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific ranking is based on the percentage of annual stated revenue growth. Many of the winning companies are private organizations and are not required to reveal their revenue under Asia Pacific laws. The Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific program is respectful of this custom.

Who administers the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific?
The Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific program is administered by DTT's Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT) global industry group. This TMT group has extensive knowledge of companies operating in these industries and the challenges they face.
