Press release from the issuing company
October 6, 2005 -- Exstream Software today announced its inclusion in the Software 500, Software Magazine’s list of the world’s foremost software and services providers, published as an online catalog on www.softwaremag.com. Exstream ranked 285 and is the 10th fastest growing company between $30 and $100mm in revenue according to Software Magazine’s data.
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 this year’s Software 500 companies are private. 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.
“The overall health of the software and services industries has improved, with revenue for the 2005 Software 500 at $383.3 billion worldwide for 2004, an increase of 16.5% over the previous year. The industry continues to be dynamic, with nearly 100 new companies on the 2005 Software 500 list,” says John P. Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com. “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. Our aim is to help CIO’s, senior IT managers and IT staff research their partner options and that is a valuable service.”
