Previously i have posted about top companies in India, but this time i'm here with the same topic in the case of global. So here we go...............

I didn't get accurate list because i got list from Forbes2000 and Software Magazine. So now i'm posting both of them.



List of the largest global software companies(Forbes2000):

This yearly list offers 2000 large companies active in all kinds of industries. By selecting software & services a sublist can be made, which is 35 companies long in the 2010 edition. Forbes offers figures such as sales, profits, assets and market capitalization. Only public companies are listed. The ranking seems to be based upon a multiplication of sales*profits*assets*market capitalization. A Top 10 extract of the world's largest software companies according to the Forbes Global 2000 is provided below.
  1. IBM
  2. Microsoft
  3. Google
  4. Oracle Corporation
  5. SAP AG
  6. Accenture
  7. Computer Sciences Corporation
  8. Yahoo!
  9. Tata Consultancy Services
  10. CA
Forbes includes services revenues given its listing of IBM, Accenture, Computer Sciences and Cap Gemini. Forbes also appears to include advertising revenues given the listing of Google and Yahoo in their Top 10. Large private software companies are not on the Forbes list. Market capitalization influences the ranking: Forbes has used the market cap of Mar 01 2010 to build their list.



List of the largest global software companies (Software Magazine)
A yearly list that is available after free subscription. The list offers 500 companies. Services revenues are included in the software revenues. Software Magazine sends out a yearly request for data: companies fill in their own data online. As Software Magazine is primarily read in the US, the list also has a slight focus on the US, although it is becoming more international every year. The companies are ranked according to software & services sales revenues. Both public and private companies are included.
Software Magazine's Top 10 ranking of 2009 is as follows (see their website for more info): [2]
  1. Microsoft
  2. IBM
  3. Electronic Data Systems (now an HP company)
  4. Accenture
  5. Oracle Corporation
  6. HP
  7. Google
  8. SAP
  9. Computer Sciences Corporation
  10. Capgemini
  11. Lockheed Martin Corporation
Due to the inclusion of services revenues, many IT services companies appear on the list: Accenture, CSC and Cap Gemini. Software Magazine usually publishes a new edition in September.
