"The 2005 Software 500 results reflect shifts in the U.S. and world economies towards companies offering integration services and software as a service, with the most successful companies concentrating on higher degrees of automation and customer self-service," said John P. Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com.
