Herndon, VA – October 14, 2011 – Apptix (OSE:APP), the premier provider of hosted business communication, collaboration, and IT solutions, today announced its fifth consecutive year of inclusion in Software Magazine’s Software 500 ranking of the world’s largest software and service providers.
The Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world’s largest software and services suppliers. More than 100 companies are on the list in 2011 for the first time, a reflection of the dynamic nature of the industry. “The 2011 Software 500 results show that revenue growth in the software and services industry was healthy, with total Software 500 revenue of $541.5 billion worldwide for 2010, representing approximately 10 percent growth from the previous year’s list,” says John P. Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com
“Being named for a fifth straight year to the Software 500 list is a testament to Apptix’s ability to evolve with the market, expanding our Cloud solution offerings while maintaining enterprise-class reliability and customer support,” said David Ehrhardt, President & CEO of Apptix.
The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2010. This includes revenue 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.
The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers, and IT staff research and create the short list of business partners, targeting medium to large enterprises, their IT professionals, software developers, and business managers involved in software and services purchasing, “It is a quick reference of vendor viability. And the online version, to be posted soon at www.softwaremag.com, is searchable by category, making it what we call the online catalog to enterprise software,” Desmond says.
