software revenue of $5.2 million.
"The software industry remains extremely dynamic, with 140 new companies
appearing on the 2004 Software 500 list. Overall results were mixed but
total revenue for the 500 was up 14% and total employment up 8%,"
says John P. Desmond, Editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com.
"Sectors strong this year include security, business process management
and system integration services including outsourcing services. Site visitors
will notice changes to the Software 500 online this year that make it
easier to navigate. Our aim is to help CIOs, senior IT managers and IT
staff research their partner options and that is a valuable service."
The Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world's largest software
and services suppliers targeting enterprise IT organizations. The list
includes both private and public companies; 30% of the 2004 Software 500
companies are private. The Software 500 is a worldwide list in that any
company may submit financial and product information via the annual Software
500 survey, conducted 100% on the Web.
The ranking is based on total worldwide software and service revenue
for 2003. This includes revenues from software licenses, maintenance and
support, training and software-related services and consulting. Suppliers
are not ranked on their total corporate revenue, since many have other
lines of business, such as hardware. The financial information was gathered
by a survey prepared by King Content Co. and posted at www.Softwaremag.com,
as well as from public documents.
