"Employee head count was up 13.7% and was strongest in the segments of collaboration/project management, system integration services and IT consulting, and the supply chain/manufacturing software segment.

The Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world's largest software and services suppliers targeting medium to large enterprises, their IT professionals, software developers and business managers involved in software and services purchasing. The list includes both private and public companies; 28% of the 2004 Software 500 companies are private. The Software 500 is searchable by primary business sector on http://www.Softwaremag.com, free to all site registrants. "The online Software 500 is a valuable resource for CIOs, senior IT managers and IT staff for researching their vendor partner options. It is a quick reference of vendor viability," Desmond says.
The ranking is based on total worldwide software and service revenue for 2004. 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 http://www.Softwaremag.com, as well as from public documents.
